HTML clipboardIn the full hybrid arena, Toyota continues its utter dominance. Since 1997, it has made more than 2m vehicles using its Hybrid Synergy Drive system, and continues toward its goal of offering a hybrid variant of every model it builds. Full hybrids, using a high-voltage battery pack of 1.0 to 5.0 kilowatt-hour (kWh), are distinguished from their mild-hybrid brethren by their ability to run on electric power alone, for short distances and usually at low speeds. The upcoming Porsche Cayenne system, by contrast, provides electric ‘gliding’ at autobahn speeds under light loads. ( )
