Toyota Hybrid Cars & SUVs

The Future of Mobility

Only hybrid technology can offer cleaner emissions, increased fuel efficiency, and surprising power. Meet the Toyota hybrid powertrain: the most proven and advanced on the planet.

Toyota is proud to be the world leader in hybrid power, offering more hybrid models than any other manufacturer and always working to perfect new innovations in cleaner, mobile power.
Our Full Hybrid Lineup
Toyota is the world leader in hybrid power

Toyota’s patented hybrid technology gives an unmatched combination of performance, efficiency and low emissions, offering more hybrids than any other carmaker. Toyota has won the most ecoENERGY Awards, recognizing the most fuel-efficient vehicles in Canada. And since Toyota launched the world's first widely available production hybrid in 1997, more than 10,000,000 vehicles have been sold in 80 countries around the world.

How Hybrids Work

Toyota hybrids give you both power and powerfully efficient performance.

That's because Toyota's revolutionary Hybrid Synergy Drive can operate in electric mode only, gas mode only, or a seamless combination of the two. A power-split device and sophisticated energy management system constantly monitor driving conditions and seamlessly manage power flows. Regenerative braking helps the battery regain charge every time you decelerate, effectively recycling energy for later use. The result is fantastic fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance — a powertrain that’s up to 70% cleaner than conventional gas engines and diesels.

Press the Power Button and go -- quickly and silently. In most conditions, at vehicle start-up only, the electric motor is engaged, saving fuel and delivering instant torque, while producing zero emissions.

Hybrid Facts

Higher Maintenance Myth

Like so many hybrid myths, the idea that maintaining a Toyota hybrid is more expensive than a conventional gas vehicle simply isn’t true. In a Toyota hybrid, the engines are off some of the time, reducing wear and tear; the brakes are regenerative, saving pad and rotor life; there is no transmission fluid under load; and there are no starters, alternators or belts to be replaced. All of which can reduce the need for maintenance.
Low Running Costs

Like all Toyotas, our hybrids have great reliability records. Taxi fleets in Vancouver and Winnipeg have been using hybrids for over a decade, benefitting from superb fuel savings and low operating costs while logging millions of kms, some with over 1,000,000 kms on the odometer.
A Battery For Life

Did you know that over 99 percent of the hybrid vehicles we've sold since 2000 have never had their original battery replaced? That's because Toyota hybrid batteries are designed to last the life of the vehicle. They're also backed by an 8-year, 160,000km warranty.
Toyota Hybrids Versus Diesel Powertrains

The latest diesel vehicles emit nearly triple the amount of smog-forming emissions than Toyota hybrids. In contrast, Toyota hybrids are among the cleanest vehicles on the road, and are well ahead of the curve when it comes to reducing smog-forming emissions.
Primed for the next generation

Edgy, angular and athletic. Introducing Prius Prime, the vehicle that shows you what’s possible. Like 22% less fuel consumption than its predecessor and an exceptionally responsive drive system. Prime’s tech-forward interior includes a giant 11.6” HD screen, Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging, and an intelligent parking assist system.
