Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Freedom to Move with Hybrid Electric Vehicles

A Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) gives you the freedom to drive like you always have, while helping to reduce fuel costs and lower emissions along the way (As compared to an equivalent conventionally gas powered vehicle.). With two sources of power that work seamlessly together, and no need to plug-in, an HEV asks only that you enjoy the ride.

Toyota Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Powerful & Proven

HEVs combine a gas engine with electric motors, automatically choosing the optimal source and blend of power. Because the hybrid battery recharges on the go through regenerative braking, you never need to plug‑in.


In most conditions, only the electric motor is engaged, saving fuel and delivering instant torque with minimal emissions.


The gas engine and electric motor team up to provide the ideal mix of power for seamless acceleration. Excess energy is used to help recharge the battery.


The electric motor takes over. The regenerative braking system converts braking energy into electric energy to help recharge the battery onboard the vehicle.


When stopped, the gas engine shuts down to conserve fuel – unless the battery is running low. When reversing at low speed, only the electric motor is required.

Electrify Your Ride

Better performance, less expensive to operate and maintain, and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. What more could you want!

"With two sources of power that work seamlessly together, and no need to plug-in."

Get in and Go

Hybrid electric powertrains work automatically in the background, so you don’t need to change a thing about how you drive or fuel your vehicle.

Quick & Quiet

The electric motors deliver Instant torque for instant acceleration and a soothingly quiet ride.

No Additional Routine Maintenance

Toyota hybrid electric vehicles follow the same maintenance schedule as our gas-powered vehicles.

Go the Distance

The hybrid battery recharges on the go so you have the added confidence to get you where you need to go, without the need to plug in.

Help Reduce Fuel Costs & Emissions

Depending on your driving needs and habits, you can spend some of the time in zero-fuel, zero-emissions driving.

Part of the Solution

Since 1997, electrified Toyota vehicles have prevented over 94 million tons of CO2 emissions globally.
