Hybrid Electric Battery Service in Calgary, AB

Battery Service at Charlesglen Toyota for Your Hybrid Electric Toyota Models

Routine maintenance is important for every vehicle to ensure it performs optimally over the course of its life. Like conventional gas-powered vehicles, your hybrid and electric vehicles also require regular check-ups to ensure all their components are in proper working condition, especially the battery, as it predominantly powers the whole vehicle. Hybrid or electric vehicle batteries perform differently and have more specific needs than traditional car batteries, which is why they need special attention. So, if you own a Toyota PHEV, hybrid or electric vehicle, read below to understand why you should bring your car to Charlesglen Toyota’s service department to get its battery checked by our highly experienced technicians.

What Should You Know About Toyota’s Hybrid Electric Batteries?

Toyota uses more than one type of battery to power your favourite hybrid, PHEV or all-electric Toyota vehicles; for example, the Toyota Prius Prime and RAV4 Prime run on a lithium-ion battery that is lighter and smaller, which is the primary reason why it holds a greater charge that and offers better efficiency. The other two types of batteries include: Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) and Solid State.

Also, it’s important to note that hybrid vehicles, like the RAV4 Hybrid, don’t require being plugged in to charge because they recharge on the go via a regenerative battery system that converts braking energy into electrical energy. On the other hand, models like the Prius Prime can partially recharge themselves through regenerative braking, but can also be charged at home through a regular power outlet.
