Fuel consumption indicators In your hybrid vehicle, there are several indicators that show different aspects of fuel consumption:

Toyota hybrid system Toyota hybrid system combines the power of an engine and a traction mo- tor to minimize fuel consumption and emissions. Depending on driving conditions, the ve- hicle runs optimally on a combination of the engine and traction motor. Since the engine charges the hybrid bat- tery as needed, the battery does not have to be charged from an outside source like an electric vehicle.

Instrument cluster indicators

1. Current fuel consumption (fuel economy

meter): See “Fuel economy meter” in Section 1−6 on page 133.

2. Average fuel consumption after refuel-

ing (“TANK AVG”): See “—Outside temperature and cruise information” in Section 1−6 on page 135.

3. Average fuel consumption after the hy- brid system is turned on (“ECO DRIVE LEVEL”): See “—Outside temperature and cruise information” in Section 1−6 on page 135.

Energy monitor— Toyota hybrid system performs various controls depending on the operating condition. The condition appears on the multi−information display and/or naviga- tion system screen (with navigation system) when the display and/or screen is in “Energy Monitor” mode. See “—Outside temperature and cruise in- formation” on page 135 in Section 1−6 and “Trip information” on page 255 in Section 1−10 for the operation of the display and screen. These are representative examples of energy monitor displays. Depending on the condition, the energy monitor dis- plays the graphics different from those shown below. Depending on conditions, the graphic does not reflect the actual motion of the vehicle.

Starting your hybrid vehicle Your vehicle is equipped with a push start system. Follow the procedure be- low to start the hybrid system: 1. Make sure that you are carrying the

electronic key.

2. Make sure that the transmission is in

the “P” position.

3. Press the “POWER” switch briefly and firmly with the brake pedal depressed. The “READY” light starts flashing and then it stays on with sounding a beep. If the ambient temperature is low, such as dur- ing winter driving conditions, it may take longer than the usual amount of time until the “READY” light stays on. The hybrid system cannot be started with- out the brake pedal depressed. For details, see “How to start the hybrid system” on page 301 in Section 3. The engine may not start even with the “READY” light on.

When parking, be sure to put the trans- mission into the “P” position. While driving, put the transmission into the “D” position. D In the “N” position, the engine operates but electricity cannot be generated. The hybrid battery will be discharged requir- ing unnecessary engine power to re- charge.

D The hybrid system automatically

tion.

D The power of the hybrid battery can be checked on the multi−information dis- play or the navigation system screen (with navigation system). See “—Hybrid battery status” on page 5 for details. Gradual or non−abrupt acceleration and deceleration will make more effectively use of the traction motor without hav- ing to use engine power.

INFORMATION

The engine starts and stops automati- cally. (It stops during a low load driv- ing, deceleration or when the vehicle is stopped.) As long as the “READY” light remains on, you can start your vehicle using the traction motor even with the en- gine stopped. The engine may not stop automatical- ly in the following conditions: z During engine warm−up z During hybrid battery charging z During low or high hybrid battery

Precautions for the use of hybrid vehicle— —High voltage components

1. Air conditioning compressor 2. Inverter unit 3. High voltage cables 4. Hybrid battery and DC/DC converter 5. Service plug 6. Traction motor, transaxle and motor

generator

The hybrid system uses high voltage up to 650 V. High voltage components are indicated in the illustration above. High voltage cables are orange. The system can be hot while and after starting. Be careful of both the high voltage and the high temperature.

CAUTION

The vehicle has high voltage DC and AC systems as well as a 12−volt sys- tem. DC and AC high voltage is very dangerous and can cause severe burns and electric shock that may re- sult in death or serious injury. D Never touch, disassemble, remove or replace the high voltage parts, cables and their connectors. High voltage parts and cables are indi- cated illustration above. Touching, disassembling, removing or replacing those parts and cables can cause severe burns or electric shock that may result in death or serious injury.

Leaving the transmission in the “N” position for an extended period of time may discharge the hybrid battery. The ve- hicle cannot run if the hybrid battery is discharged. When you leave your vehicle, apply the parking brake, put the transmission in the “P” position, be sure to carry the key with you and lock all the doors.
