|the Estima hybrid is 4WD with the 2.4L petrol engine powering the front wheels and the electric motor driving the rear wheels.
The Estima hybrid employs Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive technology, which achieves high fuel efficiency, low emissions, outstanding driving performance and quiet operation.
The Estima Hybrid boasts one of the highest fuel efficiency figures in its class combined with the responsiveness of a hybrid vehicle, smooth, powerful acceleration and extremely quiet operation.
The E-Four system has a high-output rear mounted electric motor powering the rear wheels, which works together with the petrol engine driving the front wheels.
The Estima hybrid was the first minivan to use VDIM (Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management), which optimally balances power, steering and braking for improved handling and stability.
For those concerned that the 2.4L Estima hybrid won’t keep up with an equivalent 3.5L petrol Estima, note that performance is similar at around 11 seconds 0 to 100 km / h – fairly impressive for a people mover weighing over 1,900 kg and achieving combined fuel economy of around 5.55 L / 100 km (18.0 km / L).
It is for this reason that sales of the petrol Estima in Japan dropped right off from 2010, with hardly any sold in later years.
2010 therefore marks the time that Japan made a big shift to hybrid Estimas, with the 3.5L petrol option no longer offered by Toyota after the mid-2016 model facelift.
