What is a Hybrid?

Toyota Hybrids are known as 'hybrid-electric' vehicles because they use both an electric motor and a petrol engine. Toyota hybrids always use the electric motor to drive the vehicle, whilst the petrol engine supplies power to the electric motors and supports a generator to charge the hybrid battery.

What is the best Hybrid for me?


There's a hybrid for everyone.

Toyota pioneered hybrid technology with the Prius in 1997. Today, as the hybrid leader with over 15 million hybrid drivers around the world, we offer a range of distinctive models to suit every lifestyle, from hybrid SUVs to hybrid city cars.

Whether it's the appeal of the dynamic C-HR Hybrid crossover or a stylish Yaris Hybrid city car, an all-wheel-drive RAV4 Hybrid or a spacious Corolla Hybrid Touring Sports, we're confident Toyota has the best car for you.

What's the difference between a Hybrid and a Toyota Hybrid?


Power up to 50% of your city drives on electric.

Not all hybrids are the same. When compared with some other hybrids, the main benefit of a Toyota Hybrid is that they always use the electric motor to drive the vehicle, whilst the petrol engine supplies power to the electric motor when needed and supports a generator to change the hybrid battery too.

Some hybrid cars only use their electric motors to support the engine during acceleration and cruising - the electric motor cannot power the car on its own. In Toyota's self-charging hybrids, you can enjoy pure electric power for up to 50% of your city journeys according to Toyota Hybrid Experience figures. At higher speeds or when overtaking on the motorway, the petrol engine and electric motors to work together to give you a strong boost of power.
