Read on to learn more about the range of hybrid and electric Toyota vehicles in Calgary, with Stampede Toyota!
The different Toyota electric powertrains
Since the needs of every driver are unique, Toyota offers three different electrified powertrains to provide a variety of solutions for our customers. So whether you’re taking long trips or just cruising around town, there’s an efficient electric Toyota vehicle right for you.
Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) from Toyota utilize a gas engine alongside an electric motor, generating electricity every time you drive. The best part about HEVs is, as long as you’re driving, they never need to be plugged in.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) also use both a gas engine and electric motor; however, they can also be plugged in to charge, providing a longer, electric-only driving range.
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) process hydrogen as their main energy source, alongside an electric motor, to power forward. FCEVs are the cleanest vehicles on the market, with water being their only by-product.
Reasons to choose an HEV or PHEV
Regardless of which electric Toyota model you choose, there are a number of reasons that make driving one a smart choice, including (but not limited to):
- Powerful performance, including more instant torque
- More efficient performance, without needing to adjust your driving style
- No additional maintenance beyond what a gas-powered vehicle requires
- An extensive, 10-year/240,000 km warranty (on the hybrid battery)
- PHEVs with a full tank of gas and a full charge offer serious driving range (up to 1,035 km in the Prius Prime)
- Reduced CO2 emissions lead to a reduced carbon footprint
- Electric vehicle batteries can be recycled
- All Toyota HEVs and PHEVs are compliant with Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards
- All Toyota HEVs and PHEVs come with Toyota Safety Sense standard
- All Toyota HEVs and PHEVs have been tested for the cold and life in Canada
- Toyota hybrid electric vehicle batteries are built to last, with over 98% sold in Canada since 2001 still running strong
Future & Concept Toyota Vehicles
Toyota has earned a hard-fought reputation as being one of the pioneers in the hybrid electric vehicle space, and that can be seen in both their future and concept vehicles. Toyota’s concept vehicles—like the LQ, Ultra-compact BEV, e-Palette, and i-Road—are all uniquely-styled and designed to showcase new Toyota technology as well as tackle the problems of the future, while the forthcoming Toyota Mirai will be built to handle some of the modern issues faced by drivers.
First released in 2014, the fuel cell-powered Toyota Mirai was an immediate game-changer thanks to its potent performance, incredible efficiency, and forward styling. The next-generation Mirai, releasing soon, takes all those attributes a step forward with a larger range, more power, and even better handling.
