Toyota Prius

The most efficient hybrid is the Toyota Prius.

The Prius houses a 98 hp 1.8 litre 4 cylinder petrol engine which is in a detuned state. Combined with the large electric motor, power output is 134 hp.

Electrically controlled continuously variable transmission ensures the engine remains in a narrow fuel efficient rev range. An electric water pump means that no accessory belts are required which also helps its economy.
