Toyota Hybrid Technology

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.

How Hybrids work

Toyota hybrids give you both power and powerfully efficient performance.

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 diesels.**
