Toyota Hybrid and All-Electric FAQs

Is a hybrid vehicle more expensive than a gas-powered vehicle?

When considering whether to purchase a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or an all-electric Toyota model, it’s important to look beyond the MSRP and evaluate all costs associated with ownership. For example, when comparing a completely gas-powered car to a hybrid, you’re sure to benefit from reduced fuel costs with a hybrid vehicle.

What is regenerative braking?

Toyota hybrid and all-electric cars feature regenerative braking. This helps to keep energy from being wasted. When the brakes are applied, the kinetic energy created from braking is turned into electricity and sent to the battery. Regenerative braking helps keep your vehicle’s battery charged and improves range and efficiency.

How and where do I charge my car?

You’ll need to charge your car if you drive a plug-in hybrid or an all-electric vehicle. You can charge your electrified Toyota at home or on the go. You can have an at-home charging station installed in your garage. Plus, many public EV charging stations are already available all over the country. To charge your vehicle at a public station, you just need to swipe your card (unless it’s a free charging station) and plug in.

How long does it take to charge my car’s battery?

There are a few factors that can influence your vehicle’s charge time. We suggest you revisit your vehicle’s technical specifications for estimated charge times.
