So, What are the Benefits of Owning a Hybrid Car?
The biggest advantage of choosing a Toyota hybrid is that it uses electric power in conjunction with a petrol engine. This means it delivers greater fuel-efficiency and produces lower CO2 emissions than a purely fuel-driven vehicle.
The Toyota Yaris hybrid, for example, returns as much as 85.6mpg and produces emissions as low as 75g/km.
A hybrid car provides a smooth driving experience too, whether travelling at high or low speeds. The battery recharges whenever the vehicle is in motion by utilising kinetic energy. Both engines are turned off whenever the vehicle comes to a standstill, ensuring that no energy whatsoever is wasted.
Did you know..?
Hybrid technology was being developed as far back as the mid-1970s. The first Toyota hybrid was the Prius, which made its debut in 1997. Since then more than ten million drivers have enjoyed Toyota’s hybrid cars.
When you choose a hybrid car from Johnsons Toyota, you can do so safe in the knowledge that it is a ‘full’ hybrid. This means that the petrol engine and electric motor work together, or operate independently of one another.
