Driving is fun with lower emissions.

Our hybrid models – one of which is Canada’s most fuel-efficient car* – leverage two different, yet very efficient, sources of energy. One is a powerful internal combustion engine and the other, an efficient electric motor. They utilize these two energy sources seamlessly and will automatically switch between gas power, electric power, or both, to optimize power and fuel efficiency based on the speed and type of driving you’re doing.

Frequently asked questions about hybrids.

A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle that combines power from a gasoline engine and electric motor.

Hybrid vehicles utilize both an electric motor and a gasoline engine, adapting the usage between each based on speed and the rate of acceleration. Heavier acceleration needs both the gasoline engine and electric motor, while lighter acceleration can sometimes be accomplished solely using electric. A hybrid vehicle is always adapting to meet your driving needs with the utmost efficiency. 

No. A hybrid vehicle automatically charges its battery in two ways – through the electrical energy generated by the gasoline engine and through a clever process called regenerative braking which recaptures the energy of slowing down your vehicle and converts it to electricity which, in turn, gets stored back in the battery.  No. A hybrid vehicle automatically charges its battery in two ways – through the electrical energy generated by the gasoline engine and through a clever process called regenerative braking which creates an electrical charge whilst slowing down.

A hybrid vehicle provides optimized power and improved fuel economy, with the capabilities of being fueled like a regular gasoline vehicle. No need to plug in or install an at-home charger.

A Hybrid vehicle uses both a gasoline engine and electric motor for propulsion. An electric vehicle uses only an electric motor for propulsion – no gasoline required. The electric vehicle’s high-density battery needs to be periodically charged through an external electrical power source. 

A hybrid electric vehicle and a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle both utilize their powerful electric motor and a gasoline engine to generate movement. They adapt on their own using both the electric motor and gasoline engine simultaneously based on the current driving conditions. Both vehicles also use regenerative braking, the most efficient way of putting energy back into the electric battery. This is the process of recovering energy that would otherwise be lost during deceleration so it can be reused to propel the car once acceleration is required.

The key differences between the two is that the plug-in hybrid has a larger electric motor and greater battery capacity allowing it to be used for a greater range of operation and distance. The plug-in hybrid plugging into an external electric source while the standard hybrid is solely fueled like a conventional gasoline vehicle.
