After nearly two decades of proven reliability and durability, hybrids are now a part of the normal, daily lives and routines of millions of people worldwide. It’s easy to forget that the technology is cutting edge, when it functions so perfectly time after time. No matter what your lifestyle demands, hybrids go about doing their work quietly and efficiently, with the minimum of fuss, offering the type of performance and fuel savings other vehicles can only dream of.
The world’s best selling hybrid also happens to be incredibly reliable, with modern styling, a roomy, comfortable interior, great performance and style to go. No wonder millions worldwide step into a Prius every morning.
The stylish young upstart of the hybrid range, Prius c provides city smarts, peppy performance and street-wise good looks, all wrapped around a surprisingly spacious interior.
The Prius v provides all the benefits of a hybrid’s fuel efficiency, with the capabilities of a cleverly packaged family-sized 7-seater. Ideal for growing families or businesses alike.
Prius Plug-in provides up to 26kms* of silent, pure electric driving (EV), before seamlessly switching to petrol-hybrid mode. This next-level combination means you can commute and complete short trips without using any fuel or producing any emissions.
Now the sleek looks and sporty handling of Corolla Hatch comes with the responsive power, incredible efficiency and proven reliability only Toyota Hybrids can offer. Amazing in the city and open-road alike, NZ’s favourite car just got even more attractive.
The Camry’s combination of space and comfort, impressive handling, top-end build quality and exciting, next generation looks is impressive enough. But add hybrid fuel efficiency, and you create something truly exceptional.
With the introduction of Prius Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) to Signature Range you now have the full range of hybrid options available. Corolla Hatch Hybrid, Prius , Prius c, Prius v and Camry Hybrids offer you the latest in Toyota Hybrid Technology, with no need to ever plug-in your vehicle. While Prius Plug-in expands your electric-only (EV) driving from 3kms to around 26kms* range when fully charged, and at speeds of up to 100kph. This means you can go even further and faster without using any fuel.
Hybrids seamlessly switch between electricity and gas for fuel-efficient driving. In fact, Toyota hybrids can deliver a 30-40%* saving in running costs over a similar sized petrol engine vehicle. Then there’s the incredibly aerodynamic exteriors, which provide a seamless flow of air around the vehicles to maximise fuel efficiency. It all adds up to the EECA giving Prius hybrids a rating of 5.5 stars out of 6 for energy efficiency – and the Camry Hybrid being rated 5 out of 6 stars. Learn more about EECA and fuel economy labels

Toyota hybrids have incredible range. For example, a Camry Hybrid with a 65 litre tank and 5.9l/100km* (combined ADR 81/02) fuel efficiency has a potential range of approximately 1,000km. So much for range anxiety!
Millions use and enjoy hybrids every day, without thinking twice about their batteries. However, rest assured that New Zealand Toyota hybrids have an 8 year or 160,000km warranty — whichever occurs first under normal operating conditions — for the battery pack. 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.
Hybrids don’t just save you money at the pump – they also reduce the amount of air pollution thanks to their exceptionally low carbon emissions. Take the Prius c for example – at just 90g/km* (combined ADR 79/02) you know that you’re doing your bit every time you get behind the wheel.
Toyota invented the concept behind Hybrid Synergy Drive® over 30 years ago. Starting with the Prius, Toyota has been mass-producing hybrid cars since 1997 – that’s nearly two decades! In that time we’ve sold over 7 million hybrid cars to customers worldwide. Our fourth generation hybrids are the result of years of continuous improvement, while other manufacturers are only now considering building their first.
