Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid cars use the same proven Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive technology, but with a notable difference.
Toyota Plug-in Hybrids feature a significantly higher capacity battery and a greater EV range of up to 75km. Plug-ins can be charged from an external electricity source, such as a domestic socket, a dedicated wallbox or on-street charger. While charging as often as possible will allow for maximum efficiency, Toyota Plug-in Hybrids run in Hybrid mode even when uncharged.
When in Hybrid mode, all Toyota Hybrids switch seamlessly between two power sources – an efficient petrol engine and an intelligent self-charging Hybrid battery. This offers a high degree of flexibility, particularly for longer journeys.
