Powerful response when you need it
Toyota Hybrid Electric vehicles switch seamlessly between two power sources, a petrol engine and an electric motor, to give you response when you need it. A Hybrid car’s electric motor delivers an instant hit of torque (or pulling power) when you press the accelerator, while at higher speeds or when overtaking on the highway it works in tandem with the petrol engine for a strong boost of power.
With the introduction of a 2.0-litre Hybrid engine in the new Corolla and a 2.5-litre Hybrid engine in the new RAV4, Toyota Hybrids are now tuned for even more effortless response and power. To give you an idea, the new RAV4 Hybrid accelerates from rest to 100 km/h in just 8.1 seconds, and its Hybrid system has a towing capacity of up to 1,650kg.
