Toyota of Orlando explores Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive!

There are many factors that go into improving fuel efficiency, such as size and aerodynamics, but what makes our new Toyota hybrids in Orlando
  unique is the amazing technology under the hood - the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive! This special drivetrain is the heart of our hybrid vehicles because of its incredible capabilities. It allows our new Toyota  hybrids in Orlando to use both an electric motor and gasoline engine in harmony, which results in a ton of benefits!

  • Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive lets our new Toyota hybrids switch from the gasoline engine to the electric motor and vice versa with ease to use the most efficient option depending on the driving conditions!

  • Our hybrids can use the electric motor by themselves when driving at slower speeds or decelerating to save fuel.

  • They can also automatically switch to use only the gasoline engine when accelerating for more power to do things like merge onto the highway.

  • The electric motor automatically charges when not in use or when braking, so it never has to be plugged in to get the charge it needs!

  • The gasoline engine automatically turns off when idling, which means it won't use any gas when you're stopped or waiting in traffic!
