Hybrid facts

The Prius utilizes a self-charging hybrid battery, eliminating the need to plug it in. The battery recharges while driving through regenerative braking, which captures and transforms energy into electricity stored in the battery.

Toyota and Lexus hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) have a track record of reliability, with over 98% of vehicles since 2001 never requiring their original battery to be replaced.

Additionally, the hybrid components, including the battery, are covered by an 8-year or 160,000 km warranty, and starting from the 2020 model year, the hybrid batteries are covered by an extended warranty of 10 years or 240,000 km, providing added peace of mind for Prius owners.
