Accelerate and Cruise in Your Toyota Hybrid

When you get behind the wheel of your 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, you will find that you use more fuel when you accelerate quickly. To help conserve fuel and improve your mpg, we recommend that you accelerate smoothly until you hit your desired speed and you try to remain at a constant speed as much as possible. The innovative Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) used by Toyota hybrids will provide you with the power you need and allows you to be more efficient at a constant speed. 

Use the Toyota Hybrid EV and ECO Modes 

Hybrid drivers who choose the Toyota brand will benefit from driver-selectable EV and ECO drive modes that will help you save fuel. EV Mode will allow your 2020 Toyota Prius Prime or select Toyota hybrid to operate on pure electrical power for distances of up to 25 miles at low speeds. Fuel-conscious drivers can use EV Mode to save fuel at the right speeds. ECO Mode prioritizes fuel economy over performance and will adapt throttle response to help save fuel. 

Brake Gently in Your Toyota Hybrid 

Did you know that your Toyota hybrid employs a regenerative braking system? With this innovative system in place, the hybrid powertrain will conserve fuel and supply recovered electrical power to your battery when you apply the brakes. When you apply the brakes smoothly, gently and consistently – rather than stop quickly and suddenly – more energy is recovered and stored in the battery. This will allow your Toyota hybrid to use more electricity and less fuel – to improve your fuel economy.
