Save on Gas with Toyota Hybrids

Mar 22, 2019

2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

We know the scene a little too well - you’re driving along and notice the gas needle is getting closer and closer to empty. Eyes are peeled for the nearest gas station, but the prices aren’t lining up with your wallet. Kilometres pass, the needle is plunging rapidly and you’re finally forced to pull into the nearest station reluctantly.

Canadians can spend more on gas than they’d like to. With recent price increases, particularly in British Columbia, many Canadians are looking to save on gas more than ever. As the best fuel economy cars, buying or leasing a hybrid vehicle could be one way to cut costs.

How Hybrids Reduce Gas

Opting for an alternative powertrain like a hybrid is a great way to save on gas, as their power sources are divided between gas and electric. This means less gas is needed to operate a hybrid in comparison to a gas-only vehicle.

Here are some of the ways hybrid vehicles use gas more efficiently:

  • During start up, hybrid vehicles use an electric motor to help cut down on gas consumption.
  • When the vehicle is in motion, the gas engine and electric motor work together to respond to driving conditions to make sure the driver has the ideal mix of mechanical and electric power for smooth, seamless acceleration. Our electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT) technology makes this possible, optimizing the output from both the gas and electric motor to achieve the desired speed.
  • When a hybrid vehicle is idling, the gas engine automatically turns off to avoid wasting fuel unnecessarily.

Taxi fleets in Vancouver and Winnipeg can vouch for the cost savings that come with choosing a hybrid vehicle – they’ve been using them for over a decade and tout saving on gas and low operating costs as two major benefits of choosing a hybrid.

Why Choose a Toyota Hybrid?
