Only hybrid technology can offer cleaner emissions, increased fuel efficiency, and surprising power. Meet the Toyota hybrid powertrain: the most proven and advanced on the planet.
The Hybrid Leader
Toyota has always been the world leader in hybrid power.
Toyota’s patented Hybrid Technology gives an unmatched combination of performance, efficiency and low emissions. Did you know that Toyota offers more hybrids than any other carmaker? We’ve won the most ecoENERGY Awards, recognizing the most fuel-efficient vehicles in Canada. And since we launched the world's first widely available production hybrid in 1997, we've sold more than 10,000,000 in 80 countries around the world
How do Hybrids Work?
Toyota hybrids give you both power and powerfully efficient performance.
That's because Toyota's revolutionary Hybrid Synergy Drive can operate in electric-mode only, gas-mode only, or a seamless combination of the two. A power-split device and sophisticated energy management system constantly monitor driving conditions and seamlessly manage power flows. Regenerative braking helps the battery regain charge every time you decelerate, effectively recycling energy for later use. The result is fantastic fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance — a powertrain that’s up to 70% cleaner than conventional gas engines and diesel.**
