Yaris, Auris, Prius and Prius+ batteries are all automatically charged while you drive, so there is no need to waste time plugging your vehicle in to gain the optimum charge.

Fear not. Your battery is designed to never lose its charge, thanks to the hybrid battery, which is charged by the petrol engine as you drive.

Every hybrid model qualifies for free road tax. For individuals with a Toyota hybrid company car, a fantastically low 11% BIK is available.

Will breakdown insurance, with companies like RAC and AA, cover my hybrid vehicle in the case of a breakdown?

Hybrid batteries are designed to last the vehicle through its entire lifetime, but should something happen unexpectedly, your Toyota is covered up to a 10 years (100,000 mile) Toyota warranty with Toyota Relax. And in addition to the manufacturer warranty, your Toyota Hybrid battery can benefit from up to 15 years of warranty in total. With every service at a Toyota dealer, the warranty is extended for a further 12 months, up to the 15th year of registration.

90% of emissions generated are produced throughout the driving experience, while a mere 10% of emissions is contributed by productions, shipping, scrapping and so forth. Therefore, it’s clear to see that with efficiency considered, the hybrid battery is the environmentally friendly alternative to your standard petrol/diesel engine.

We can assume that a 30-40% saving in running costs can be achieved per year.
