Toyota Hybrid Electric Vehicles

What is a Hybrid Electric Vehicle?

Toyota hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are designed to help you get the more out of your drive with fewer emissions. It’s advanced in every way while taking complicated out of the picture. Once you make the switch, you won’t have to worry because it is easy to own and maintain.
HEVs combine the power of conventional engine with the fuel savings and eco-friendliness of an electric motor.
Toyota HEVs like the Prius, Prius C and Corolla Altis Hybrid are powered by a self-charging electric motor – so there’s no need to plug it in.

HEV has two power sources; Gasoline engine and Electric motor resulting in greater efficiency.

Why go HEV?


You use the gasoline engine much less, so the amount of CO2 and other pollutants generated is also minimized. Enjoy being good to the environment.


Many times, you will be using power from the electric motors’ battery, so you’ll need much less gasoline. Enjoy spending a lot less to go places!


Electric motors have high torque, so your vehicle can increase speed rapidly and smoothly. Enjoy a satisfying and responsive drive!


Electric motors make very little noise while running, so your drive will be most silent. Enjoy creating your own in-car ambience!

How It Works?


When starting the car, driving at constant speed in low and mid-speed ranges, and at full stop, the electric motor takes over for the engine, minimizing fuel consumption.


When you need to go faster, the gasoline engine automatically activates and adds its power. This also charges the battery that electric motors.


When the brakes are applied, an electronically controlled brake system (ECB) uses kinetic energy to recharge the electric motors’ battery. With this Regenerative Brake System, you don’t need to plug in any Toyota hybrid vehicle.
