What is a Hybrid Vehicle?

A hybrid vehicle is a car, truck or SUV that uses an electric motor and battery in conjunction with a gas powertrain. These vehicles typically get higher gas mileage and can help you drive past the fuel pump time and time again. New Toyota hybrid vehicles will use the battery whenever possible, such as when idling or stopped, and switch over to the gas powertrain when needed for greater efficiency.
