Toyota's world leading Hybrid Synergy Drive® (HSD) technology is an advanced Hybrid System which teams a petrol engine with an advanced electric motor. The system intelligently manages the input from each power source depending on the driving situation, to provide the optimum balance of performance and fuel economy. With uncompromised performance but using less fuel, the intelligent new Corolla Hybrid Hatch creates a smoother and quieter ride.
How Hybrid Works
When travelling at low speeds in EV mode, only the electric motor is used for a quieter drive with zero CO2 emissions[G1].
When accelerating or cruising at high speeds the petrol engine turns on providing additional power and responsive performance.
During deceleration or braking, the electric motor generates power and stores it in the battery.
When your Toyota stops, the petrol engine turns off, conserving fuel.
