Toyota Extends Battery Warranty for 2020 Hybrid, Plug-in, and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles

 


Toyota is working to put more power behind its hybrid battery and component warranty by recently announcing an extended hybrid battery warranty from 8 years / 100,000 miles to 10 years from date of first use/150,000 miles, whichever comes first. This extension is valid for all new model year 2020 Toyota hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell electric vehicles. All other HV components will continue to still be covered by the Hybrid System Warranty at 8 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

The new 2020 Toyota hybrid battery warranty is the longest offered warranty in the industry. This warranty not only covers first owners, but also all subsequent owners during that same time frame. This makes delivering the fuel efficiency, amazing range, dynamic performance, and positive environmental benefits that this innovative technology delivers even easier.

“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, Toyota Vehicle Marketing & 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’s 2020 lineup includes:

  • Fourth-generation Prius with available AWD-e boasts a combined EPA-estimated 50 MPG
  • The Prius Prime which has seating for 5 and a range of 640 miles on a full charge and a full tank of gas.
  • First-ever Corolla Hybrid with an EPA-estimated 52 combined MPG
  • Second-generation RAV4 Hybrid with an estimated 40 combined MPG

  • New 2020 Highlander Hybrid with an estimated 33 combined MPG
  • Current generation Toyota Mirai with an EPA-estimated 67 combined MPGe and 312-mile EPA-estimated driving range

The current Toyota Hybrid System Warranty coverage is 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first, for the following components:

  • Hybrid Battery Control Module (battery voltage sensor)
  • Hybrid Control Module (power management control module)
  • Inverter with Converter
  • The new Hybrid Battery Warranty is 10 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first.
