Millions use and enjoy hybrids every day, without thinking twice about their batteries. Over the last eighteen years our batteries have proven themselves fully capable of withstanding the day-to-day rigours of modern city and long-distance driving.
All Toyota Hybrid vehicles first registered in New Zealand come with our New Vehicle High Voltage Hybrid Battery Warranty that covers this battery for up to 160,000kms or 8 years*. This also includes the hybrid battery on our Plug-In Hybrid vehicles like the Prius Prime. On New Zealand new and privately imported vehicles (from Japan and Australia only), our Toyota Care extended warranties are an effective way to keep your Hybrid Battery covered throughout the duration of the Toyota Care extended warranty.
Yes there is! The Toyota Hybrid system has two batteries: High Voltage Hybrid Battery and the 12 Volt Battery (somewhat like a normal non-Hybrid vehicle’s battery). The difference is the high voltage hybrid battery provides a higher voltage to the drive motors in the vehicle that is used to move it forwards and backwards. The 12 volt battery runs the vehicle’s smaller electrical components such as the audio unit and lighting system.
*Whichever occurs first under normal operating conditions.
Toyota hybrids have incredible range. For exmple, a Camry Hybrid with a 50 litre tank and 4.2/100km* for the GX and SX and 4.5/100km* for ZR (combined ADR 81/02) fuel efficiency has a potential range of approximately 1,000km. So much for range anxiety!
Unlike electric vehicles that need to be plugged into a power source to be recharged, hybrid cars don’t need to be. Hybrids run on two power sources, a petrol motor and an electric motor powered by a battery. Because it has a petrol motor, the car still requires fuel to keep it going. But because the electric motor subsidises power, the car needs less fuel. Less fuel means fewer greenhouse gases being emitted into our atmosphere.
The Toyota Prius Prime Plug-in Hybrid goes one step further it not only self-charges while driving but it also has the option of being able to plug it in to re-charge the electric motor. This means you can plan your trip to drive on electricity and then charge back up so you don’t have to use any petrol.
Meet the Prius v a vehicle that brings together class-leading versatility and hybrid technology to create the most flexible seven seater hybrid in New Zealand. Every seating position, including those in the third row, features three-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) seatbelts. Third row seating is 50:50 split folding and are able to recline individually as well.
With the rear third row seats folded down you’ll have a huge 505-litres of load space. But it doesn’t stop there; a 60 litre under-floor storage compartment is also provided, along with places to stow things in the side compartments, the glove box and centre console.
Across our three Ebbett Toyota stores located in Hamilton (flagship store), Morrinsville and Te Awamutu we have a wealth of automotive experience and a thorough understanding of our hybrid models.
The large range of hybrids that Toyota has on offer and the fact that the majority of models are self-charging are what the team sees as Toyota’s competitive advantage in the growing Hybrid market.
