WHAT IS A SELF CHARGING HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE?

Toyota’s Self charging hybrid electric vehicle uses a gasoline engine and an electric motor. The vehicle can be driven using its electric power alone, as well as with the engine and electric motor working together. Unlike other cars, Toyota’s hybrid cars are self-charging. Electricity is generated as you drive the car, captured from the energy created when you brake or slow down. This kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy and stored in a battery when the vehicle is cruising too. When the vehicle is in need of more power, the stored electrical energy is released to assist the vehicle with more power. This process is controlled by the power control unit at very short intervals.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Charge

Self charging hybrid electric vehicle

  • 1

    STARTING-OFF

    The electric motor propels the vehicle alone.

    Electric motor-only starting-off.

  • 2

    Regular driving

    The electric motor does most of the work and the engine simply helps out.

    OPTIMAL BALANCE

    Optimal use of the engine and the electric motor.

  • 3

    Full acceleration

    While the engine runs in the efficient zone, additional power is supplied by the motor/generator from the electrical energy stored in the battery.

    Maximum use of power from both the electric motor and the engine.

  • 4

    Deceleration/ braking

    In a conventional car, energy is lost when it brakes. In a self-charging hybrid electric vehicle this energy is recovered and stored in a battery for future use.

    The large electric motor and battery allow large amounts of energy to be recovered and stored.
