Toyota Hybrid Technology
PLUG-IN HYBRID ELECTRIC
HYDROGEN FUEL CELL ELECTRIC
We’ve been leading the charge for more than 20 years. So that today you can choose from an array of Toyota electrified vehicles and powertrains, and find the right one for you.
Hybrid Synergy Drive also includes a feature called regenerative braking which helps recharge the battery while assisting with braking.
A plug-in hybrid uses the best of features of both electric vehicles and conventional hybrid vehicles. Learn more in this video.
Hybrid Synergy Drive
Toyota vehicles equipped with hybrid synergy drive are powered by a combination of a gasoline engine and electric motors.
Types of Hybrid Vehicles
HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE
HEVs seamlessly combine the power of a gas engine with electric motors. And because the hybrid battery recharges on the go, you never need to plug in.
PLUG-IN HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE
PHEVs operate in the same way as HEVs, but can optionally be plugged in for extended electric-only range.
BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLE
BEVs are zero-emission vehicles that are powered by electricity alone. BEVs require plugging-in, while also utilizing regenerative braking to recharge the onboard battery as you drive.
HYDROGEN FUEL CELL ELECTRIC VEHICLE
FCEVs use hydrogen as an energy source to power high-output electric motors, emitting water as the only by-product from the tailpipe.
