Our hybrid battery is not like a standard car battery, but a much more sophisticated component engineered to last the entire lifetime of your car. Unlike a pure electric ‘plug-in’ vehicle that needs to have its battery recharged after a long journey, a hybrid battery continually recharges itself when your car is in motion. It does this by regenerating energy through the car wheels turning; and even when you use your brakes.
All of our Toyota vehicles come with a five-year manufacturer warranty, which covers the battery too.
The best thing about a hybrid vehicle is that you do not need to charge it, as it charges “on the move” meaning you aren’t restricted by range and will never be out of power. A Toyota hybrid vehicle is electrically self-sufficient and switches automatically between its electric and petrol powered engines as and when it needs to depending on your driving style.
Many people believe that buying and running a hybrid vehicle are more expensive that a normal vehicle. Fuel savings offer the main savings in running a hybrid, especially in town, as often it drives only on its electric powered engine, using electricity it self-generates in motion. So no fuel is used. They also have an improved resale value and Low cost of maintenance and less wear and tear than conventional cars
We would love to speak to you in more detail about our Toyota Hybrid range and demonstrate the benefits on an extended Hybrid test drive, so you can experience first-hand the superior driving.
