Toyota Hybrid Lineup: Pricing, Specs, And Reliability In Detail

[ad_1]

Toyota currently has one of the most extensive hybrid offerings in the U.S., ranging from mild-hybrid to full PHEVs. The Japanese brand is also known for its attractive value proposition, reliability, and capability. Many consider the Prius to be the genesis of gasoline-electric hybridization, but there’s no denying that it’s the origin of the brand’s now comprehensive hybrid catalog. Toyota currently offers 15 different hybridized cars.




These models include sedans, five-door fastbacks, SUVs, and one truck. Toyota implements a lot of shared parts across its model line, but each model is distinctive and unique, and carters to varying consumers. Toyota’s catalog is so broad, because it maintains the belief that hybridization and alternative fuel sources are the best way to combat climate change, rather than completely leaning into electrification. This is a belief that a lot of manufacturers who made heavy investments in EVs are now starting to agree with.

In order to give you the most up-to-date and accurate information possible, the data used to compile this article was sourced from various manufacturer websites and other authoritative sources, including MotorTrend, Car and Driver, Edmunds, the NHTSA, and the EPA. The models below have been ranked based on their starting MSRP, from the cheapest to the most expensive.
