What Is a Hybrid Car?
A hybrid car uses both a conventional internal-combustion engine and an electric motor, combining the best of both electric vehicles and petrol engine cars for the ultimate driving experience.
Hybrid cars use regenerative braking to recharge the battery while charging and can use the electric motor independently or in unison with the internal-combustion motor for fuel-efficient driving with reduced carbon emissions.

Top 5 Reasons To Buy A Toyota Hybrid In Brisbane
Toyota Hybrid vehicles come with a range of benefits, from lower fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions to the powerful performance of a hybrid car motor and extended warranties for peace of mind.
1) Fuel-Efficient City Driving
Hybrid vehicles are great for fuel-efficient city driving. This is because the vehicle can switch to using only the electric motor when stationary or driving at lower speeds.
When in electric mode, your hybrid will be using zero petrol, saving you money on fuel. Additionally, driving a hybrid in Brisbane city will significantly reduce carbon emissions as you are relying less on the petrol engine.
Your city, your planet and your wallet will thank you!
2) Powerful, Responsive Performance
Another reason to buy a hybrid in Brisbane is the powerful, responsive performance of the hybrid motor. With the advantages of both an electric motor and a petrol engine, hybrid vehicles provide fast power delivery in the notorious stop-start driving of Brisbane’s peak hour as well as when travelling long distances at high speeds.
The electric motor provides instant torque and a faster response for effortless takeoffs, and the petrol engine automatically kicks in for added power when accelerating or driving at high speeds. Enjoy the benefits of your Hybrid through the city and on open roads with responsive performance when you need it and no compromise on power.
3) Recharge On The Go
With the busy Brisbane lifestyle, finding the time to stop to charge an electric vehicle for hours can be inconvenient and disruptive. Additionally, with far fewer electric vehicle charging stations in Brisbane than other major cities and far outnumbering petrol stations, reaching a dedicated charging point before you run out of power can quickly become a problem.
The beauty of a hybrid vehicle is that, unlike electric vehicles, the lithium-ion battery that powers the electric motor charges while you drive through regenerative braking. This means that there is no need to charge your car through an external source, and you’ll never have to worry about running out of power, making refuelling your car as simple as it’s always been.
4) A Luxurious Driving Experience
Enjoy a smoother, more comfortable driving experience with the controlled braking and smarter automatic gear changes of a Toyota hybrid in Brisbane. From the controlled and efficient takeoffs thanks to the instant torque and faster response of the electric motor to the extra power and responsive performance provided by the internal-combustion engine.
Additionally, the electric motor of a hybrid vehicle is much quieter than the conventional petrol engine for a more luxurious driving experience while cruising the streets of Brisbane city.
5) Extended Warranties For Peace Of Mind
Many new hybrid Brisbane vehicles also come with extended warranties for peace of mind. In fact, Toyota offers a 5-year, unlimited kilometre warranty* on all new hybrid vehicles purchased after January 1st, 2019.
