What is EV Mode in Toyota Hybrid?

2022 Toyota Prius

Models like the Toyota Prius include something called “Toyota Hybrid EV Mode”, and many customers wonder what that entails. What is EV Mode in a Toyota Hybrid and why is it worth trying? Toyota Hybrid EV Mode allows your vehicle to function as an electric vehicle, relying primarily on the power of the battery rather than the gas engine. Although this provides a very limited range, Toyota Hybrid EV Mode can provide a huge boost to your gas mileage – as well as some notable benefits you might not expect. Find out what EV Mode is, and visit Toyota of Cedar Park for more Toyota research.

What is EV Mode?

Normally, your Toyota hybrid will utilize both the gas-powered engine and the electric motor to power your Austin travels. But in certain hybrids, you can press a switch to activate EV Mode. EV mode will cause your Toyota to use the electric motor with power from the hybrid battery without using the engine. The result is an electric vehicle driving experience in the body of a hybrid vehicle.

When Should I Use EV Mode?

Now you know what is EV Mode, why is it so useful in Leander and Georgetown? Toyota Hybrid EV Mode offers several advantages:

  • EV Mode uses solely electrical power, which means fewer emissions and greater efficiency.
  • EV Mode is nearly silent. If you are driving early in the morning in residential areas, EV Mode will reduce your noise level as you navigate.
  • EV Mode will only activate when certain conditions are met. So if you don’t have sufficient battery charge, your vehicle will stay in Normal Mode. No need to worry about running out of range.

There’s plenty more to explore with Toyota Hybrid EV Mode, like the Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System and speed limitations, so be sure to consult your owner’s manual for more information about your make and model!
