Which Toyota Models Have Hybrid Variants?

With gas prices always in flux and climate change a growing concern, more drivers than ever are looking to electrify their rides. But not everyone wants to go fully EV, whether because of higher upfront costs, concerns about charging infrastructure, or lack of trust in newer designs.

Hybrid vehicles are a much easier sell, as they’ve been around for a long time, there are plenty of affordable models available, and they don’t require radically different service and maintenance than a traditional gas-powered car. And if you want a range of hybrid options to choose from, it’s a good idea to visit your local Toyota dealer.

Toyota has been in the hybrid game for a long time, and its list of hybrid models is long and diverse. There are over ten different nameplates with hybrid versions, some of which have multiple hybrid powertrains for drivers to choose from. Today, we’re going to review the models in Toyota’s lineup that can be had as hybrids and what these electrified powertrains can deliver.

1) Prius

The Prius might just be the most well-known hybrid—not just in Toyota’s lineup but in general. This compact hatchback has been around for a while and has proven to be a reliable car that’s a solid choice for commuters and road-trippers who don’t want to spend half their voyage at the gas station. Over the years, it has remained highly fuel-efficient while gaining a sleek aesthetic and improved driving dynamics.

Today, the Prius is still available as a traditional hybrid that gets all of its power from gasoline and uses regenerative braking to power its electric components. The 2024 Prius delivers up to 196 hp with available all-wheel drive and gets up to 57 MPG city/highway combined in FWD.

If you want more electric power, you can opt for the Prius Prime, which has a plug-in hybrid powertrain that delivers a combined 220 hp between the engine and the motors. Without charging, it gets 52 MPG city/highway combined, but with a fully-charged battery, it delivers up to 127 MPGe. In all-electric mode, it can drive for up to 45 miles without using any gasoline at all.

2) Crown

The Crown is a sedan with a long history, but it was unavailable in North America for decades and has only recently returned as a full-size sedan with a raised suspension that offers a unique exterior design paired with a luxurious interior. Since its return for the 2023 model year, it has been available exclusively as a traditional hybrid.

The standard powertrain delivers up to 236 hp between the engine and electric motors and gets up to 41 MPG city/highway combined. The more powerful i-FORCE MAX powertrain is limited to the Platinum trim; it boosts output to 340 hp but brings fuel economy down to 30 MPG—still above average, but not spectacular. All trims come standard with all-wheel drive.

3) Camry

The Camry is a midsize car that’s long been a popular option for commuters. It’s had a hybrid option available for years now, and it’s even been announced that this model will be getting an all-hybrid slate of powertrains for the 2025 model year. As for the 2024 model, the Camry Hybrid delivers a combined 208 hp and gets up to 52 MPG city/highway combined, depending on trim level.

4) Corolla/Corolla Cross

The compact Corolla is available as either a sedan or a hatchback, and its sibling—the Corolla Cross—is a subcompact SUV that offers more interior space. Both models are available with either a traditional gas-powered engine alone or a hybrid powertrain.

The 2024 Corolla sedan isn’t designed to deliver thrilling performance, producing only 138 hp, but it’s highly efficient with a manufacturer-estimated 50 MPG combined fuel economy rating. The Corolla Cross SUV makes up to 196 hp and is rated at a combined 42 MPG. It can also tow up to 1,500 lbs when properly configured.

5) Venza

A midsize SUV with modern styling, the Venza is also keeping up with the times by being a hybrid-only vehicle, as there’s no traditional gas-powered option in the lineup. Its sole powertrain produces up to 219 hp and comes standard with all-wheel drive. The efficient setup gets 40 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway.

6) RAV4

The RAV4 is a compact SUV that’s been a bestseller for years; in 2023, it was the most popular non-truck in the United States. The RAV4 can be a traditional gas-powered SUV, or it has two different hybrid options: a traditional hybrid powertrain and a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The RAV4 Hybrid delivers up to 219 hp, comes standard with all-wheel drive, and can tow up to 1,750 lbs. It gets a combined rating of 39 MPG.

The plug-in hybrid option, called the RAV4 Prime, also comes standard with AWD. Its more powerful system produces up to 302 hp and can tow up to 2,500 lbs. It gets 38 MPG if the battery isn’t charged and 94 MPGe if you do plug it in. In all-electric mode, it can be driven up to 42 miles without using any gasoline.

7) Highlander/Grand Highlander

Both the Highlander and the Grand Highlander are three-row SUVs with seating for up to eight, but the “Grand” version is larger, giving you more room for cargo and third-row passengers. Both versions of the Highlander offer an available hybrid powertrain.

The base hybrid setup can be had in either model, giving you 243 hp, 36 MPG combined, and 3,500 lbs of towing capacity. Only on the Grand Highlander Hybrid can you opt for the i-FORCE MAX powertrain, unlocking 362 hp and 5,000 lbs of towing capacity if you’re willing to settle for a 27 MPG combined fuel economy rating.

8) Sequoia

Across all trims, the full-size Sequoia comes standard with the hybrid i-FORCE MAX powertrain. While a fuel economy rating of 22 MPG combined might seem low compared to other Toyota hybrids, it’s great compared to other SUVs of the Sequoia’s size and weight. The Sequoia is available with either rear- or all-wheel drive, delivers up to 437 hp, and can tow up to 9,520 lbs.

9) Tacoma

The Tacoma is a midsize pickup that’s long had a slate of fans who love its manageable size and reliability. It’s getting a hybrid option for the first time for the 2024 model year. Not all of the details have been revealed yet, but with the ability to produce up to 326 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, the hybrid version is posed to be the most powerful option available in the Tacoma’s lineup.

10) Tundra

The full-size Tundra pickup has been offered as a hybrid since 2022, alongside the traditional gas-powered version. Since the hybrid version uses the same kind of engine (a 3.4L V6) as the non-hybrid Tundra and adds electric motors on top, it’s the more powerful option, delivering up to 469 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. (The non-hybrid produces 421 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.) While the non-hybrid Tundra gets 20 MPG combined, the hybrid gets 22 MPG. The only downside to the hybrid is that it has a slightly lower towing capacity, at 11,450 lbs instead of a full 12,000 lbs.

11) Sienna

Some might think that the phrase “modern minivan” is an oxymoron, but the Sienna makes a strong case for the idea that such a thing is possible. For the 2020 model year, it got an exterior redesign and eliminated non-hybrid powertrains from the lineup. The 2024 Sienna delivers up to 245 hp and can tow up to 3,500 lbs, in addition to providing a generous amount of interior space for passengers and cargo. With front-wheel drive, it gets 36 MPG combined, and available all-wheel drive only drops that figure down to 35 MPG.
