SPONSORED: Toyota’s new Toyota hybrid system, explained
Updated: June 19, 2020 - 8:34 PM
When it comes to going green, a hybrid car is a pretty simple way to make a very big difference. That’s why we’re proud to offer a great selection of Toyota hybrid cars for sale at Toyota of N Charlotte, providing you with plenty of options when it comes to eco-friendly vehicles. However, we’re even prouder to report that your selection just got even better with the introduction of Toyota’s new hybrid engineering system!
What do hybrid cars bring to your drive time?
This new Toyota hybrid engineering system hasn’t hit the market just yet. In fact, its big debut will be when the 2021 Toyota Venza and 2021 Toyota Sienna hit the market, as they’ll both be available as hybrid vehicles. We’ve got the scoop, though, so we can share the improvements and upgrades that this new Toyota hybrid engineering system will be bringing to the table.
Before we talk about what’s coming down the road, however, let’s talk about what we’ve currently got to offer. Existing N Charlotte Toyota hybrid cars use a “full” hybrid system. This system uses both an electric motor and an internal combustion engine that work together but can also each power the vehicle independently. We prefer a full hybrid system as other types of hybrid systems don’t use the electric motor as much, which makes them less eco-friendly.
This full hybrid system results in much better fuel efficiency than a traditional internal combustion engine, as well as fewer emissions. On top of that, better fuel efficiency means you use fewer natural resources because you’re using less gasoline.
How does the next Toyota Hybrid Engineering system differ?
So, how will the next Toyota hybrid engineering system be different? Here’s what you can expect when it arrives at Toyota of N Charlotte.
The next wave of N Charlotte Toyota hybrid cars will be a lot lighter, for starters - there’s a significant weight reduction with this new system.
The Power Control Unit or PCU will be in a new location, just above the transaxle. It’ll also be 10% smaller than before, and 20% lighter. The transaxle will also feature a rolling coil structure and less wiring.
A new gear structure will be implemented on this new system, and when it’s coupled with a redesigned transaxle, it results in increased performance (for both distance and time) as well as power conservation.
A new nickel-metal hydride battery will be put into use with these new N Charlotte Toyotas, and it’s smaller and better at generating power for the electric motor (which means even better efficiency and performance).
As noted, the first models to get this new Toyota hybrid system will be the 2021 Toyota Venza and 2021 Toyota Sienna. As soon as they arrive, you can get behind the wheel to see what they have to offer and feel the differences for yourself.
