Discover Plug-in Hybrid Electric

Our plug-in hybrids take you a step closer to full electric. When charged, you can travel further on pure electric energy than a self-charging hybrid. This electric power reduces emissions at the tailpipe and uses no fuel. When needed the car switches between a blend of petrol and electric, and pure electric energy.

Refuel as normal

Refuelling your plug-in hybrid is easy. Top up with petrol as normal at filling stations to use the combustion engine on longer journeys.


For fast charging, install a charge point in your home or driveway and use public charging points. You can also charge your Toyota Plug-in Hybrid from a standard plug when needed.

Reduced emissions at the tailpipe

With the ability to travel further on pure electric without using fuel and with reduced emissions at the tailpipe.

How do plug-in hybrids work?

Plug-in Hybrid FAQs

Everything you need to know about plug-in hybrid vehicles, the differences to other types of car and more.

Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid vehicles incorporate very similar technology- but with a key difference. Both switch seamlessly between two power sources, an efficient petrol engine and a self-charging Hybrid battery, however, Plug-in Hybrid vehicles feature a higher capacity battery to deliver greater electric performance.

A Plug-in Hybrid can travel exclusively in electric mode for up to around 46 miles*. If travelling for longer distances and its battery runs out of charge, your vehicle seamlessly switches back to operating as a Hybrid car, combining petrol and regenerated battery power to get you safely to your destination. No hassle and complete peace of mind.

Charge more frequently

Charging every day will help you to get the most enjoyment from the electric capability of your car.

A smooth drive

As with a conventional car, where and how you drive affects your range. Your plug-in hybrid will be more efficient on with smooth driving or on the motorway.

Regenerative Braking

Capturing the kinetic energy from braking recharges the battery and intuitively slows the car whenever you lift off the accelerator.


Outside temperature

Be aware that the weather can affect the range of your vehicle and it may need charging more often in cold temperatures.
