Do hybrids have to be charged?

Ask Toyota Hybrid
Innovation without inconvenience

Toyota Hybrids feature pioneering, self-charging battery technology. When the battery runs low in a Toyota Hybrid, excess power from the engine charges it back up again. That’s not all. Our hybrids feature regenerative braking, so when you brake or coast, a generator produces electricity to be stored in the battery for later.

If you’re still asking yourself do hybrids have to be charged? Remember that with a Toyota Hybrid there are no cables due to self-charging battery technology. However, the Prius Plug-in and RAV4 Plug-in can be plugged-in to charge the battery and run for an extended range using electricity alone.
