Are Hybrids reliable in the long term?

Ask Toyota Hybrid

Qualities you can rely on

Toyota has been developing innovative, self-charging Hybrid technology for over 20 years. Our pioneering Hybrid battery technology is engineered to last for the entire lifetime of the car, and evidence of this can be seen in some Toyota Hybrids having covered over one million kilometres on their original Hybrid battery and petrol engine.

In fact, some mechanical elements such as the clutch, alternator and starter motor are removed completely, further reducing the risk of unforeseen failures in the future. For added peace of mind, all Hybrid components, including the Hybrid battery, come with Toyota’s 5-year/100,000km* warranty from new. By carrying out an annual Toyota Hybrid Health Check, your Toyota is eligible for a further one-year/15,000km* of Hybrid Battery Extended Care, up to a total of 10 years.
