1-1. Hybrid system Hybrid system

Your vehicle is a hybrid vehicle. It has characteristics different from conventional vehicles. Be sure you are closely familiar with the char- acteristics of your vehicle, and operate with care. The hybrid system combines a gasoline engine and an electric motor (traction motor) according to driving conditions, improving fuel efficiency and reducing exhaust emissions.

Gasoline engine Electric motor (traction motor)

n When stopped/during take-off

The gasoline engine stops when the vehicle is stopped. During take-off, the electric motor (traction motor) drives the vehicle. At slow speeds or when traveling down a gentle slope, the engine is stopped and the motor is used.

1-1. Hybrid system

n During normal driving

The gasoline engine is predominantly used. The electric motor (traction motor) charges the hybrid battery as necessary.

n When accelerating sharply

The power of the hybrid battery (traction battery) is added via the electric motor (traction motor) to that of the gasoline engine.

n When braking (regenerative braking)

The electric motor (traction motor) charges the hybrid battery (traction battery).

n Regenerative braking

The electric motor converts kinetic energy to electric energy when: l The accelerator pedal is released. l The brake pedal is depressed with the shift lever in D or R.

n Conditions in which the gasoline engine may not stop

The gasoline engine starts and stops automatically. However, it may not stop automatically in the following conditions: l During gasoline engine warm-up l During hybrid battery (traction battery) charging l During low or high hybrid battery (traction battery) temperature

n Charging the battery

l As the gasoline engine charges the hybrid battery (traction battery), the battery does not need to be charged from an outside source. However, if the vehicle is left parked for a long time the hybrid battery will slowly dis- charge. For this reason, be sure to drive the vehicle at least once every several months for at least 30 minutes or 10 miles (16 km). If the hybrid battery becomes fully discharged, you are unable to jump-start the vehi- cle with the 12-volt battery, contact your Toyota dealer. If the shift lever is in N, the hybrid battery (traction battery) will not be charged. When driving in heavy traffic, operate the vehicle with the shift lever in D to avoid discharging the battery.

l

1-1. Hybrid system

l To help prevent the 12-volt battery from becoming discharged, drive the vehicle at least once a month, and operate the accessories only when the “READY” indicator is on. When parking the vehicle, make sure the doors and trunk are closed and all lights are turned off.

n After the 12-volt battery has discharged or has been changed or

removed The gasoline engine may not stop even if the vehicle is running on the hybrid battery (traction battery). If this continues for a few days, contact your Toyota dealer.

n Sounds and vibrations specific to a hybrid vehicle

There may be no engine sounds or vibration even though the vehicle is able to move. Always put the shift lever in P when parked. The following sounds or vibrations may occur when the hybrid system is operating, and are not a malfunction: l Motor sounds may be heard from the engine compartment. l Sounds may be heard from the hybrid battery (traction battery) behind

the rear seat when the hybrid system starts or stops.

l Sounds may be heard from the transaxle when the hybrid system starts

or stops, or while the vehicle is idling.

l Engine sounds may be heard when accelerating sharply. l Sounds may be heard due to the regenerative braking when you press

the brake pedal.

l Vibration may be felt when the gasoline engine starts or stops. l Cooling fan sounds may be heard from the air intake vents behind the

rear seat.

n Maintenance, repair, recycling, and disposal

Contact your Toyota dealer regarding maintenance, repair, recycling and dis- posal. Do not dispose of the vehicle yourself.

Take care when handling the hybrid system, as it contains a high volt- age system (about 650V at maximum) as well as parts that become extremely hot when the hybrid system is operating. Obey the caution labels attached to the vehicle.

n Hybrid battery air vent

There is an air intake vent on the package tray for the purpose of cooling the hybrid battery (trac- tion battery). If the vent becomes blocked, the hybrid battery may overheat, leading to a reduction in hybrid battery output.

Emergency shut off system

The emergency shut off system blocks off the high voltage current and stops the fuel pump to minimize the risk of electrocution and fuel leakage when a certain level of impact is detected by the impact sen- sor. If the emergency shut off system activates, your vehicle will not restart. To restart the hybrid system, contact your Toyota dealer.

Energy monitor/consumption screen

You can view the status of your hybrid system on the multi-infor- mation display (→P. 145) and the navigation system screen* (→P. 27, 29). The following images are exam- ples only, and may vary slightly from actual conditions. *: Vehicles with Navigation System

Hybrid warning message

A message is automatically displayed when a malfunction occurs in the hybrid system or an improper operation is attempted.

If a warning message is shown on the multi-information display, read the message and follow the instructions. (→P. 357)

n If a warning light comes on or a warning message is displayed, or the

12-volt battery has been disconnected The hybrid system may not start. In that case, try to start the system again. If the “READY” indicator does not come on, contact your Toyota dealer.

n When refueling, the fuel filler door may take a few moments to open

As part of emission system operation, it may take up to 10 seconds for the fuel filler door to automatically release after the opener switch is pressed. Before refueling is possible, a message will be shown on the multi-informa- tion display. (→P. 78) n Running out of fuel

When the vehicle has run out of fuel and the hybrid system cannot be started, refuel the vehicle with at least enough gasoline to make the low fuel level warning light (→P. 351) go off. If there is only a small amount of fuel, the hybrid system may not be able to start. (The minimum amount of fuel to add to make the low fuel level warning light go out is about 2.5 gal. [9.8 L, 2.1 Imp.gal.], when the vehicle is on a level surface. This value may vary when the vehicle is on a slope.)
