How Toyota Hybrid Electric & Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles Work

Toyota Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) combine gas engines with electric motors to generate electricity as you drive. While your vehicle is in motion, Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive seamlessly, and automatically, chooses the optimal source and blend of motive power. And because the system recharges as you drive, you never need to plug-in the hybrid electric vehicle.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Toyota plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) operate much the same way as regular Toyota hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). However, they can also be optionally plugged in – enabling you to extend your electric-only driving range. RAV4 Prime and Prius Prime are great examples of PHEV technology.

Reasons To Choose Hybrid Electric

The reasons to choose an electrified Toyota vehicle are as diverse as the lives we lead. And with a wide range of hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid electric models, we have one to help you get the most out of life.
