Discover Hybrid

Through out the month of June we're inviting you to our showroom so you can see what Toyota Hybrid is all about and why so many are making the change from petrol and diesel to hybrid today.

We have the full range of hybrids at hand which you can test drive for up to 72 hours. We are going show you why Toyota are the leaders when it comes to hybrid, after all we've been producing domestic hybrid vehicles for over 20 years now!

What Is Hybrid?

Combining a petrol engine with an electric motor

A hybrid combines a petrol engine with an electric motor, powered by a battery which the car charges for itself. Together they both just work better.

A better driving experience

Overall, the combination provides you with a better driving experience. You just push the start button, nudge the lever into D, and away you go.

And it keeps getting better

Automatic transmission and the hybrid system itself constantly optimise the source of power. The two engines work together to deliver extra power and responsive torque, as and when you need it.

And then better becomes best.

You never have to plug it in. Every time you use the brakes, ‘regenerative braking’ recharges the batteries.

Fuel economy you’ll appreciate

It’s no secret that driving in the city increases petrol costs on most cars. Hybrids don't behave like most cars. For a start, they recycle energy and have two engines – one petrol, one electric – a perfect match that delivers impressive figures as low as 3 litres of petrol consumed per 100km (with launch of new Prius in January 2016).

A quiet feeling of tranquility

When you select the electric EV-mode on our Hybrids you'll notice something quite special – nothing at all! The silence and sheer tranquility of the engine really is something you have to experience to believe. Electric EV-mode also produces zero emissions and provides an ultra-smooth ride. In fact, it’s a very calm place to be.

Seriously reduced emissions

The perfect partnership of an electric motor and a petrol engine means Hybrids emit anything from 70g of CO2 per km (with launch of new Prius in January 2016), which is an amazingly low statistic for a family car. In fact, when driving in electric EV-mode, it can go from 0-50 km/h without producing any emissions whatsoever – you’d find more CO2 in a spent balloon.

Intelligent power whatever the journey

Uphill: Both engines power the vehicle to deliver maximum performance.
Deceleration and Braking: The system recycles kinetic energy to charge the battery.
Overtaking: Both engines power the vehicle to deliver maximum performance. 
Standstill: Both engines are automatically switched off so no energy is wasted when idling.
