All hybrid cars are powered by a combination of an internal combustion engine and electric motors. When compared with some other hybrids, the main benefit of Toyota Hybrids is the fact that its two power sources can operate entirely independently of each other.
Some hybrid cars only use their electric motors to support the engine during acceleration and cruising – the electric motor cannot power the car on its own. In our self-charging Toyota Hybrids, you can enjoy pure electric power for over 50% of your city journeys according to Toyota Hybrid Experience figures and when cruising at speeds up to 31 mph. At higher speeds or when overtaking on the motorway, the petrol engine and electric motors work together to give you a strong boost of power.
