Powered By Purpose

Our Hybrids are up to 80% powered by an advanced electric engine that charges itself as it drives. But what powers us?

Since we produced our first Hybrid car in 1997, we’ve been driven by our vision for a zero-emissions future. And with each new innovation, we get one step closer to it.

These videos show just some of the ways we’re achieving this. They are proof of our brand promise, and our ultimate goal: a better world, for everyone.
