Learn the advantages of hybrid vehicles & how they work.
Hybrid technology has advanced significantly in recent years, and Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive continues to lead the technological trend to provide the best level of hybrid efficiency without sacrificing vehicle performance. The advantages of hybrid-electric vehicles include up to 70% less smog-forming emissions than traditional gasoline-only engines, and the freedom provided by never needing to plug in.
At McPhillips Toyota we have a full selection of Hybrid cars for sale including the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, luxurious Camry Hybrid, Prius, spacious Prius V, stylish Prius C, and Prius Plug-in-Hybrid. When you compare hybrid cars, there is a reason that Toyota vehicles come out on top. Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive is a full hybrid. That allows it to perform in three distinct modes: gasoline only, electric motor only, or a combination of the two. That allows you the best combination of performance and efficiency available on the market.
While it might be hard to choose the best hybrid car from our lineup, we can at least tell you that the best hybrid has to be a Toyota.
How do hybrid cars work?
How do hybrid cars work? Toyota hybrids make use of a gasoline engine as the main source of power. When gradually accelerating from a stop and moving at low speeds, the integrated AC synchronous Electric Drive Motor provides the sole power for your vehicle, drawing energy from your hybrid battery.
If your car needs to accelerate quickly, the gasoline and electric drive motors team up to provide power for smooth and powerful acceleration. While you are cruising under normal driving conditions, both motors supply power to the wheels, while the efficient gasoline engine provides a larger percentage of power at higher speeds. On deceleration, a regenerative braking system recovers kinetic energy and stores it in your hybrid battery.
