Make the change towards a sustainable future, without sacrificing power or performance. Choose a Toyota Hybrid – available in a wide range of award-winning models.
WHY CHOOSE A HYBRID?
There have never been more reasons to choose a Toyota Hybrid vehicle.
POWER & PERFORMANCE
Hybrids don’t compromise on power or performance. They are designed with the same, and sometimes greater, level of performance as their gas counterpart
RECHARGE ON THE GO
You do not need to plug in a Toyota Hybrid. Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive charges your battery on-the-go, so you don’t need to change how you fuel your vehicle – just how often you fill up. In fact, it’s identical to fuelling a conventional gas-powered vehicle. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, like the Prius Prime, can optionally be plugged in for extended electric-only range.
NO ADDITIONAL ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
Hybrids follow the same maintenance routines as conventional gas vehicles. However, hybrid systems can reduce how often other areas of the car need servicing. In a hybrid, the engines are off some of the time; the brakes are regenerative, saving pad & rotor life; there is no transmission fluid under load; and there are no starters, alternators or belts to be replaced.
REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Since 1997, Toyota hybrids have prevented over 94 million tons of CO2 emissions globally.
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE
Hybrid batteries can be dismantled and recycled just like any other battery, plus they’re designed to last! Since 2001, over 98% of Toyota hybrids in Canada have never had their original battery replaced. All hybrid components are backed by an 10 year/240,000 km warranty. Toyota Canada has a recycling program in place that recycles hybrid batteries once they can no longer be used in vehicles.
READY FOR CANADIAN WINTERS
Hybrids have been tested extensively in cold weather, so they are ready for every season. You can be confident that all Toyota hybrids have been designed and tested for life in Canada. The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is even built in Canada; built by Canadians, for Canadians.
HOW HYBRIDS WORK
Electric motor is engaged, saving fuel and delivering instant torque
The gas engine and electric motor combine for seamless acceleration. Excess energy is used to recharge the battery.
Electric motor takes over and converts braking energy into electric energy to help recharge the battery.
RESTING & REVERSING
When stopped, the gas engine shuts down to conserve fuel unless the battery is low. Only the electric motor is required for reversing.
