The Toyota TS030 Hybrid[3] is a racing car developed under Le Mans Prototype rules. The car is intended to be run at the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans, with two cars being entered in the LMP1 category,[4] and became the first hybrid car to be entered in the FIA World Endurance Championship.[5] The car will feature the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) regenerative braking device, with Toyota as yet undecided whether the system will be charged from the front and/or rear wheels. The car will mark Toyota's first works entry at the 24 Hours of Le Mans since the Toyota GT-One was entered in the 1999 race. It will make its debut at the 6 Heures de Spa-Francorchamps in May 2012.[6]

The Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) is a set of hybrid car technologies developed by Toyota and used in the company's Auris, Prius, Highlander Hybrid, Camry Hybrid, Estima, Alphard, Lexus RX 400h/RX 450h, Lexus GS 450h, Lexus LS 600h/LS 600hL, Lexus CT 200h, and Lexus HS 250h automobiles. Toyota also licenses its HSD technology to Nissan for use in that company's Nissan Altima Hybrid. Its parts supplier Aisin Seiki Co. sells similar hybrid transmissions to other car companies.

HSD technology produces a full hybrid vehicle which allows the car to run on the electric motor only, as opposed to most other brand hybrids which cannot and are considered mild hybrids. The HSD also combines an electric drive and a planetary gearset which performs similarly to a continuously variable transmission. The Synergy Drive is a drive-by-wire system with no direct mechanical connection between the engine and the engine controls: both the gas pedal/accelerator and the gearshift lever in an HSD car merely send electrical signals to a control computer.

HSD is a refinement of the original Toyota Hybrid System (THS) used in the 1997 to 2003 Toyota Prius. The second generation system THS II first appeared on the redesigned Prius in 2004. The name was changed in anticipation of its use in vehicles outside the Toyota brand (Lexus; the HSD-derived systems used in Lexus vehicles have been termed Lexus Hybrid Drive since 2006). The Lexus Hybrid Drive system is tuned for increased power and performance along with efficiency concerns;[1] it was introduced on all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive Lexus models.[2][3] By May 2007 Toyota had sold one million hybrids worldwide and by the end of August 2009 had sold a total of two million.[4] Toyota-produced hybrids make up approximately 75% of United States hybrid sales.[5]
