Hybrid Technology

Toyota Hybrid combines the power and range of a conventional engine with the environmental benefits of an electric motor.

At take-off and at low speeds, the car can run on electric power only, which means zero fuel consumption and zero exhaust emissions. Under harder acceleration, the petrol engine kicks in and takes over the job of driving the wheels.

The electric motor can send power to a generator which recharges the batteries. In return, the electric motor provides the driver with more power and torque while reducing fuel consumption.

Also, Toyota Hybrid’s regenerative braking system utilises energy from braking to further charge the battery.

All this means Toyota Hybrids never need plugging into a mains supply.

Toyota continues to set the standard for Hybrid vehicles, with all our models delivering powerful performance, exceptional fuel efficiency and clever design. Discover how Hybrid is changing the game.

Hybrid FAQs

How long does a Hybrid HV battery last?

The life of a Hybrid vehicle and a Hybrid HV battery will vary depending on usage and environmental factors. All Hybrid HV batteries are covered by Toyota Australia's Hybrid HV battery warranty, 8 years or 160,000 km (whichever comes first).


What happens if my Hybrid battery runs out of charge?

The high-voltage Hybrid 'traction battery' will never run out of charge, as it charges while you drive.


Does it cost more to service a Hybrid?

During your Toyota Service Advantage period, all servicing costs are capped at the same price for both Hybrid and conventional models. However, once this period expires, you may need to factor in additional servicing requirements, which could increase the annual cost of your service.


Can a Hybrid run on electricity when it runs out of fuel?

No. A Toyota Hybrid can only operate in electric mode when petrol is in the tank.


[W1] The Hybrid (HV) battery is warranted for 8 years or 160,000kms, whichever occurs first, from the Warranty Commencement Date.
