Toyota Highlander Hybrid

will introduce the 2006 Hybrid gas/electric mid-size utility vehicle (SUV) the first seven-passenger hybrid SUV in 2005. The Highlander Hybrid join the popular Prius making Toyota the first to offer both a passenger car and an SUV hybrid powertrains. The Highlander combines a 3.3-liter V6 engine a high-torque electric drive to deliver exhilarating performance, economy ratings better many four-cylinder compact as well as remarkably low emissions.

Highlander Hybrid marks the of a second all-new hybrid from Toyota before manufacturers have launched first,” said Don Esmond, vice president automotive “The addition of the Hybrid Drive system in our best-selling further affirms the company’s role as hybrid gas-electric continue to emerge into the consumer mindset.”

The Highlander will be powered by a new version of Hybrid Synergy Drive specifically developed to meet the requirements and performance expectations of SUV buyers. Its all-new high-speed motor operates at twice the and delivers more than the power as the motor used in the Prius, producing 268 peak horsepower with a standard capacity of 3,500 pounds. Hybrid provides rapid with a 0-60 MPH time of 7.3 seconds for the electric four-wheel-drive intelligence (4WD-i) and delivers the fuel economy ratings in the SUV segment.

The Highlander Hybrid carries an estimated EPA fuel rating of 33 mpg in city driving, 28 mpg on the Its combined city/highway estimated EPA efficiency rating of 30 mpg exceeds V8 powered SUV’s by more 100 percent and is better than the EPA average 27.1 mpg — for a compact sedan. The estimated EPA average for all 4WD-i models is an 31/27 with a combined of 29 mpg. In addition, Highlander will be rated as a Super Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV).

One of the most stringent emissions in the industry, SULEV-rated vehicles 80 percent fewer smog-forming than conventionally-powered SUV’s.


The Highlander Hybrid is as a high-power, high-voltage full which means it is capable of in electric-only or gas engine-only mode as as a mode that combines the of the gas engine and electric motor. In other hybrid technologies are not of running only on electrical but instead require constant gas operation.

The Highlander Hybrid’s V6 engine is based on the engine in the Highlander but with significant to promote smooth integration the hybrid system. These revised calibrations to the Variable Timing with intelligence and Electronic Throttle Control systems.

In making the transition to a powertrain, the alternator, power pump, water pump and AC are no longer engine belt-driven. is because the gas engine often downa fuel-saving benefit of the system especially when the is stopped or driven slowly traffic. With the exception of the which is replaced by motor-generators, all are now electrically powered which notably lower parasitic to the engine, lower noise, and fuel consumption.

The hybrid uses a 288-volt DC Nickel hydride (Ni-MH) battery that fits neatly the middle seat. The battery’s is directed through a boost that efficiently raises to 650V DC. An inverter changes to 650V AC, providing its elevated to a front-mounted 123-kW electric that turns as high as RPM.

There are two motor-generators in the models and three motor-generators in the 4WD-i models. Internally to as MG1, MG2 and MGR for the rear electric in the 4WD-i, each has a specific and each does double as both drive motor and (although MG1 is a starter and provides no force). The engine-driven generator and rear electric motor can charge the battery pack, powers other electric as needed.

Power from the gas engine and electric-drive motor (MG2) is to the drive wheels via a planetary continuously variable transmission, eliminates specific gear Two planetary gear units are in the system. The Power-Split unit the engine’s drive force two one to drive the wheels and the other to MG1 so it may function as a generator.

The Motor Reduction unit reduces the of MG2 and increases its drive torque, boosting acceleration performance.

In to its motor-generator duties, the crucial MG1 two functions: one as a starter motor for the gas and two, by regulating the amount of power it generates (which its RPM), MG1 controls the output of the transaxle through the planetary setwithout clutches or viscous This is one of the key elements of the hybrid and the reason why Highlander Hybrid the shift shock that can be felt as even the most modern automatic transmissions gears.

In conventional 4WD vehicles, the and friction of the additional drive reduce the vehicle’s acceleration compared to the same model 2WD. Not so with the Highlander The innovative electric 4WD-i employs a separate 50-kW motor (MGR) at the rear provides up to 96 lb.-ft. of additional torque as required.

The system varies front and rear distribution depending on driving

The Toyota hybrid technology allows extended electric-mode during low speed or stop-and-go conditions. The permanent-magnet front drive motor (MG2) peak torque from RPM, giving the Highlander powerful and instantaneous response will be especially felt and in low- and mid-speed performance and in and passing maneuvers.

A regenerative braking system boosts system efficiency. the Highlander Hybrid is coasting or the are applied, the electric motors as generators, capturing kinetic that would normally be as heat through the brakes and it into useable electricity to the batteries.

Four-Wheel Drive Intelligence and Advanced Vehicle

In addition to providing the fuel ratings of the average compact sedan, the Highlander hybrid the versatility, refinement, and comfort in a mid-size SUV. Highlander comes standard with and offers 4WD-i the world’s application of electric four-wheel-drive intelligence in the non-luxury mid-size SUV Toyota introduced its Star System on all 2005 model SUVs. The new standard safety includes Vehicle Stability (VSC), Traction Control Anti-Lock Brake System with Electronic Brake-force (EBD) and Brake Assist The Highlander Hybrid enhances the Safety System with the of the all-new Vehicle Dynamics Management (VDIM) system.

The ECB translates brake pedal and pressure and generates the precise of combined electric regeneration and pressure needed for virtually any condition.

Under guidance VDIM, such precise control at individual wheels more optimized operation of the dynamic handling systems employ the brakes: ABS, Assist, Vehicle Stability (VSC) and traction control VDIM also interfaces the Hybrid System, allowing it to vehicle power when and a new Electronic Power Steering (EPS) to optimize steering for each situation.

The EPS uses a DC motor and gear system built into the gear housing to provide assist. This compact contributes to fuel economy by the traditional power steering and by providing its computer-controlled assist when called for by the driver. EPS allows a more precise and control of steering assist conventional engine-driven hydraulic

VDIM constantly calculates motion based on signals a yaw rate and deceleration sensor, speed sensor and steering sensor. Using these VDIM controls all of the vehicle’s handling systems and can employ collectively and seamlessly, allowing it to detect the onset of a loss of control and help correct it. The to operate ‘proactively’ means corrections to vehicle attitude are faster, more accurate and than traditional systems, VDIM feel smooth and transparent to the driver.

VDIM enhances the Highlander Hybrid qualities and maximizes its performance driving pleasure and safety.

The Highlander Hybrid enhanced ride comfort the same versatility as the conventional Highlander. Inside, the Highlander features three seating in all models, rear privacy a rear heater system, and seat cupholders. Walk-in and a second-row sliding seat it easy to enter and exit the row. The third-row seat and also folds completely into the floor to create cargo space.

The second-row split fold-down seat reclines and folds forward for added comfort and utility.

The styling will be freshened the addition of a new chrome accented grille and integrated bumper, headlamp trim, rear LED lamps and chrome license garnish. The Highlander Hybrid ride on new 17-inch split alloy wheels and will well equipped with the customers have come to in premium mid-size SUVs.
