Toyota, Lexus Offer Unprecedented Hybrid Battery Warranty
Sales of Toyota and Lexus hybrid vehicles in Canada are increasing very rapidly. In fact, they beat their all-time annual mark recently… with three months left in 2019.
So, the Japanese automaker decided to offer a nice gift to new owners: It will extend its hybrid battery warranty from 8 years/160,000 km to 10 years/240,000 km. This is unprecedented in the auto industry.
Logically, the upcoming 2021 RAV4 Plug-in (to be unveiled in Los Angeles next month) will follow suit.
All other hybrid components will retain coverage under the Hybrid System Warranty at 8 years/160,000 km:
- Hybrid Battery Control Module (battery voltage sensor)
- Hybrid Control Module (power management control module)
- Inverter with Converter
