The Toyota Alphard has remained Japan’s best selling people mover for much of the time since its first release in Japan in 2002. It is larger and has more luxury options than the Toyota Estima / Tarago and is a direct competitor of the Nissan Elgrand.

Toyota makes a sportier version of the Alphard, called the Vellfire which also comes in Hybrid form.

The full-size Alphard Hybrid MPV 20 Series was released in Japan in November 2011 and qualifies as an Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV), with emission levels 75% lower than the Japanese government’s year 2000 benchmark.

To achieve this the Alphard Hybrid is powered by a 2.4L petrol engine in tandem with an electrical motor and batteries which together produce an impressive 265 kW.

The 2.4 L engine has been developed specifically for use in Toyota’s hybrid systems and features a high-expansion ratio cycle that raises efficiency and reduces friction.

Toyota’s E-Four electric 4WD system regulates the rear-mounted, rear-wheel-propelling electric motor and coordinates electric power distribution seamlessly to all four wheels.

The ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake system) provides efficient wheel-by-wheel brake control coupled with “by-wire” technology that monitors brake pedal pressure and vehicle speed in order to calculate the optimum hydraulic pressure.

By-wire works with the E-Four 4WD system to maximise the collection of kinetic energy from braking for conversion into electric power to recharge the batteries.

The Alphard Hybrid elecrtrical system can generate up to 1,500 watts and is equipped with AC power outlets which can be used to power laptops or other appliances.

Fuel Efficiency

The Alphard Hybrid achieves approximately 5.6L / 100km. In addition to the hybrid powertrain,  the Alphard has features to maximise efficiency and reduce fuel use.

The Alphard Hybrid has specially developed windscreen glass to reduce the amount of solar radiation penetrating the cabin. In addition, the roof and roof panels contain an insulating material to control cabin temperature, which helps conserve energy when the air conditioner is operating, and a two-way compressor is incorporated in the motor to optimise the use of the airconditioner.
