distance from my home to work is 8km. on hybrid battery/rolling power/neutral mode it runs for minimum of 3-4km but in between climbing the slope twice and it kicks engine power which is normal and charges the battery as well. my speed is between 8kmph - 20kmph as its a gravel road, the rest of the 3-4 km is tar sealed road it kicks engine; battery is charged mostly half or 3/4 and I exclrate and let the vehicle run on rlling power & hybrid. in total the vehicle kicks engine for atleast 6-8 times. while on tar sealed road my speed is from around 40kmph to 80kmph, today i took it for long drive it worked normal, speed was from 50kmph to 110kmph on tar sealed road (driving time included 1hr each way and had to climb hills as well)....will take for long drive again and compare.
I also checked the status of the 12v battery, it reads 12v to 12.3 (fluctuates), when put on load its jumps to 11.7v, when engine is fully started it reads 14.3v.
well all the story is true....y wud i make up things.
also will there be any form of sound from engine when brake is applied, slowly or suddenly to slow down or to stop, actually when i do this there is a sound from the left side of the engine compartment which sounds like 'mmmmmmmmmmmmm'.
the problem is that none of the local importers including the Toyota dealer have detailed knowledge of this car but its sold like a hot cake.
