Hybrid Car Insurance

Get a Quote

Hybrid vehicles have been around for some time, with Toyota producing hybrid cars since 1997. Like certain driving modes in plug-in hybrid cars, these vehicles use the main internal combustion and an electric motor to power the transmission. This can be done in a number of ways, but the most common and most efficient is what Toyota describe as the ‘Full hybrid system’. This is when the two ‘engines’ work together to produce the power output. As the names suggests, this form of hybrid does not need to be plugged in to charge the batteries but instead, will charge the batteries via a generator, using the petrol engine and regenerative braking. As the accelerator is lifted or the brake is compressed, the system is able to charge the battery, making it particularly efficient in towns and stop-start traffic.
