Let’s dive into everything we know about the first hybrid Clermont Toyota truck on the Toyota lineup, the Toyota Tundra Hybrid.

What is a hybrid car?

A hybrid car is a Clermont Toyota whose engine runs on gasoline and an electric motor, with an attached rechargeable battery for specifically electric-powered driving. The hybrid engine uses both machines simultaneously, making your car’s fuel economy better than a regular gasoline engine. Clermont Toyota Hybrid cars have great power and performance with fewer gas emissions.
