Are Hybrids OK for highway driving?

Ask Toyota Hybrid

Performance and efficiency at every speed

Toyota Hybrids feature two power sources that operate independently of each other: a conventional petrol engine and an electric motor. At higher speeds, or when overtaking on the highway, the two engines work together to give you a strong boost of power. Not only is a Toyota Hybrid's petrol engine at its most efficient at these speeds, it’s also quiet, relaxing and comfortable when cruising.

With the introduction of a 2.0-litre Hybrid engine in the new Corolla and a 2.5-litre Hybrid engine in the new RAV4, Toyota Hybrids are now tuned for even more efficient and effortless highway cruising, offering a combination of performance and low emissions that conventional engines can’t match.
