Toyota Hybrids are known as ‘hybrid-electric’ vehicles because they use two electric motors and a petrol engine too. Toyota hybrids always use the electric motors to drive the vehicle, whilst the petrol engine supplies power to the electric motors when needed and supports a generator to charge the hybrid battery.
Depending on your driving conditions, you can get zero fuel consumption, zero tailpipe emissions and a near-silent drive for up to 50% of your urban journeys according to Toyota Hybrid Experience figures. Meanwhile, UK government data shows that hybrid cars have consistently lower CO2 figures than comparable conventional cars.
