Toyota Boasts Industry’s Longest Hybrid Battery Warranty

If you are shopping for a new hybrid or plug-in vehicle, you should consider a Toyota. Toyota recently announced that it was extending the battery warranty coverage for all of its 2020 hybrid, plug-in, and fuel cell vehicles. This extension will give drivers two additional years or 50,000 extra miles of coverage, for a total of 10 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first.

With this expansion, Toyota now offers the longest hybrid battery warranty in the industry. What makes this warranty even better is that it covers the original owner and all subsequent owners. This could add additional future value when the time comes to sell or trade in your vehicle.

“Toyota introduced the first hybrid vehicle in the world more than 20 years ago, but people still have hesitations about owning a hybrid vehicle,” said Heather Updegraff, general manager for Toyota vehicle marketing and communications. “Our goal is to minimize that concern and this new warranty extension for the hybrid battery is just another way we are leading the industry and putting our customers first.”

The Toyota 2020 lineup includes seven hybrid models and one fuel cell vehicle. The fourth-generation Prius delivers an EPA-estimated 50 mpg combined*, and the Prius Prime, a plug-in hybrid, provides a combined driving range of up to 640 miles. This year’s lineup also includes the RAV4 Hybrid crossover and the first-ever Corolla Hybrid, which offers an EPA-estimated 52 mpg combined.* Visit us at Midwest Toyota to test-drive one of these innovative and eco-friendly rides.
