Toyota hybrids are some of the most affordable cars on the road to own and run, thanks to a combination of impressive fuel economy and lower road tax costs. And they’re among the friendliest to the environment too, with some of the lowest CO2 emissions figures around.
They use two engines – one petrol, one electric – that work in tandem to produce a relaxed and efficient driving experience. Simply fill up with fuel as normal, and in everyday driving the energy usually lost during coasting and braking is stored in a battery, ready to be recycled by the electric engine.
The only exception to this rule is the ultra-efficient Prius Plug-in Hybrid, which can run on electric-only power to offer silent, zero-emission driving in stop-start urban traffic. When you start to run out of charge, it will revert to petrol-electric hybrid mode. It’s genius.
The new Prius is the jewel in the crown of the Toyota Hybrid range. It offers dynamic looks and an enjoyable driving experience, with emissions as low as 70g/km.
There is a Toyota Hybrid for every driver and every home. City slicker? Try the Yaris Hybrid. Outdoorsy adventurer? Check out the practical RAV4 Hybrid SUV and Auris Touring Sports Hybrid. There’s also a seven-seat Prius+ MPV and the family-favourite Auris Hybrid hatchback.
