7 Benefits Of Buying Toyota Hybrid Vehicles

7 Benefits Of Buying Toyota Hybrid Vehicles

The shift towards Hybrid Electric Vehicles or HEV’s is stronger than ever. With demand for electric and hybrid vehicles in Australia at the highest level it has ever been.

Hybrids have become more popular with Australian drivers in the last year with conventional models (HEVs) making up seven per cent of all new cars, SUVs, utes and vans bought in Australia in 2021 — an increase of 20.3 per cent on 2020, with this figure set to rise again in 2022. 

Here we explore the top benefits in choosing a Toyota Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

Toyota Hybrid vehicles combine the best of both petrol engines and electric motors, providing the ultimate driving experience. With reduced carbon emissions, lower fuel consumption, and our extended warranty offer, there has never been a better time to make the switch to a Toyota Hybrid. 

Director of content and editor-in-chief at carsales.com.au, Mike Sinclair, reported a surge in searches for electric vehicles on the site since the beginning of the year.


He said the monthly search share for EVs increased to 14.14 per cent in March, peaking at almost one in five searches on 13 March.
 
Many Australians are realising the benefits of Toyota Hybrids in this market outweigh all else. Here’s our top 7.

7 Benefits Of Buying Toyota Hybrid Vehicles

1) Hybrids Save Money On Fuel

With a Toyota hybrid vehicle, you will save money on fuel. Unlike conventional vehicles that rely solely on an internal-combustion engine, our hybrid vehicles use a cutting-edge electric motor to cut down on fuel consumption. This means that you will use less fuel per kilometre, and with petrol prices at an all-time high, this amounts to a significant reduction in vehicle running costs. 

2) Toyota Hybrids Save Time with no External Charging

Another benefit of choosing a Toyota hybrid vehicle is that the electric motor recharges itself while you drive, eliminating the need for charging from an external source. This means that, unlike with electric vehicles, you won’t need to worry about installing a dedicated car charger in your home or locating a public EV charging station to prevent your vehicle from running out of power. 

With a hybrid vehicle, the electric motor recharges while you drive through regenerative braking. Regenerative braking transforms kinetic energy into electric power, which is then stored in the lithium-ion battery that powers the electric motor. Essentially, every time you brake, the car recharges the battery a little bit, so there is no need to plug the car into an external charger. 

3) Hybrid Electric Vehicles Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Many Australians are choosing to make the switch to hybrid vehicles to reduce their carbon footprint. A Toyota hybrid vehicle is an environmentally-conscious choice that will significantly reduce your carbon footprint when compared to conventional petrol-engine vehicles. 

With the benefits of both a petrol engine and an electric motor, our hybrid vehicles produce less greenhouse gas emissions as they rely less on the internal-combustion engine through the use of electric power.

4) Industry-Leading Hybrid Technology

As Australia’s most trusted car maker, Toyota continues to set the standard with our industry-leading Toyota Hybrid technology to create a cleaner, greener future for all Australians. With a wide range of Toyota Hybrid vehicles available, from compact hatchbacks to luxury sedans and spacious SUVs, there’s something for everyone. 

Plus, every Toyota Hybrid purchased after January 1st, 2019, comes with a maximum 10-year unlimited kilometre warranty* on the hybrid battery for total peace of mind. 

5) Hybrid Vehicles are Quieter with a Smoother Operation

Enjoy the luxurious experience of a quieter and smoother ride with our state-of-the-art hybrid technology. With controlled braking and smarter automatic gear changes, Toyota Hybrid vehicles provide a more refined experience.

Our electric motors are almost completely noiseless and provide effortless takeoffs as a result of instant torque and a faster response for improved comfort and smoother operation. 

6) Toyota Hybrids do not Compromise On Power

When it comes to Toyota Hybrid vehicles, there’s no need to compromise on power. With both an internal-combustion engine and an electric motor, our hybrid vehicles provide the benefit of more power and torque for enhanced performance. 

Our hybrid vehicles take advantage of the efficiencies of each motor. The electric motor can work independently for controlled takeoffs and effortless acceleration or in unison with the internal-combustion engine for more power. 

7) Extended Hybrid Warranties 

We know how important it is to be confident that your new vehicle is built to last, which is why Toyota provides a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty on all new Toyota Hybrids bought after January 1st, 2019, that covers any part, panel, and accessory made by Toyota. 

Additionally, if you follow the recommended annual service schedule, we will extend the engine and driveline warranty from five to seven years.**

If you’re ready to benefit from the above and more, than perhaps it’s time to switch to a Toyota Hybrid Vehicle.
