Hybrid Nation

Welcome to the Toyota Hybrid Nation


Toyota's new Hybrid Nation competition offers Toyota self-charging hybrid electric drivers the opportunity to win a host of incredible, sustainabity-focused rewards for demonstrating EV drive-time*

We believe that self-charging hybrid electric is the ideal way to switch from a petrol or diesel car to a more sustainable way of motoring. Self-charging hybrid electric cars emit less CO2 and less NOx, making our roads safer for everyone, and reducing emissions for the planet. They also use less petrol, meaning lower fuel costs.

Share your electric drive time with the world

The latest generation of C-HR, Corolla, Yaris and Yaris Cross hybrid models all feature an EV Drive Time reading on the dashboard at the end of each journey, making it easy for drivers to track the percentage of time they spend driving with zero emissions. Read on to see how you can find your EV drive time.

Win a voucher to Marlfield House Hotel


From the 25th May, drivers of these aforementioned Toyota models need only share a photo of their EV Drive Time dashboard percentage of 50% or over after a journey of more than 20 minutes, tag @Toyota_Ireland on their Instagram post and use the dedicated hashtag #HybridNation to be in with a chance to win a voucher to Marlfield House Hotel, Gorey, Country Wexford.

A winner will be selected at random every two months until the competition ends on the 31st of December 2022. The first winner will be selected on the 25th July. Terms and Conditions apply.
