Built around the world’s leading, most tried and tested hybrid technology, Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive® (HSD) comes standard in Camry Hybrid models and delivers remarkable fuel efficiency without compromising performance. The intelligent energy management system seamlessly synergises the car’s petrol engine with its electric motor so each power unit either supports the other or takes over completely, depending on the driving situation.
The electric motor in the Hybrid Synergy Drive® (HSD) system generates enough power to drive the car on its own, meaning the petrol engine isn’t needed at ignition or low speed.
It kicks in whenever you call for more power, accelerate hard, or cruise at high speed. And because the battery is kept charged through normal driving and recaptures energy from braking and deceleration, it provides all the power the electric motor needs.
