Hybrid Synergy Drive | Phil Gilbert Toyota

In recent decades, Toyota's hybrid technology has revolutionised the automotive industry. Delivering incredible fuel performance without sacrificing performance, a hybrid vehicle is a great choice for any driver. If you’re considering purchasing a hybrid car from your new or used Toyota Dealership, we’ve created this handy guide to help you make the best choice.

What is Hybrid Technology?

In simple terms, a hybrid is a car with more than one source of power. All Toyota hybrids combine the use of a traditional combustion engine and an electric motor. These power sources can be used separately or work together to power your vehicle. Through the use of clever technology, Toyota hybrids are able to calculate the most efficient use of power at any given time. Your vehicle will automatically turn off your engine and switch to electric power in order to save on fuel and cut down on emissions.

Benefits of Hybrid Technology

A hybrid vehicle is also the ideal option for those seeking to reduce their impact on the planet. Vehicles with Toyota Synergy Drive technology produce much less emissions when compared to a traditional car. This gives you a great head start on reducing your total carbon footprint.

With fuel prices increasing, a trip to the service station can result in a big hit to your bank account. The good news is that driving a hybrid car can help you save money! Because hybrid cars use less fuel, you’ll find yourself pulling in at the petrol station less and less. Over time, you could save thousands on your fuel bill.

Common Myths About Hybrid Technology

Like any new technology, Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive might take a bit of getting used to. You might have heard some misconceptions about hybrid vehicles. Thankfully, the expert team at your nearest Toyota dealer are happy to clear up some of those myths.

Many people assume that hybrids have to be plugged into a power point to charge. In reality, hybrid vehicles use innovative technology to charge their batteries while your car is in motion.

You might have heard a rumour that hybrid vehicles lack power. However, hybrid cars are just as powerful when compared to their traditionally-powered counterparts.

Which Hybrid Car is Best for Me?

With hybrid vehicles popping up all over the market, it can be difficult to choose! The most important thing to consider when purchasing a new hybrid car is whether it suits your individual needs.

The Prius is one of Toyota's most popular vehicles, with satisfied drivers all over the world. Available in three different models, there’s a Prius for every lifestyle. Take a trip to Phil Gilbert Toyota to find the perfect fit for you.
