Toyota Hybrid High Voltage (HV) Battery Recycling

Toyota Hybrid Battery

Toyota Hybrid Electric Vehicles have changed the way the world thinks about mobility. Toyota’s well proven Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) provides excellent driving performance and outstanding fuel efficiency.

Hybrid Synergy Drive

Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) refers to Toyota’s hybrid drivetrain that combines a petrol engine, two electric motor/generators, a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), and a high-voltage battery pack.


Hybrid Synergy Drive can operate the vehicle in electric-only mode, petrol-only mode, or a combination of both depending on the situation.
