Default Newbie - Toyota Estima Hybrid

Hi everyone,

I wonder if I'm the first user here driving the Toyota Estima Hybrid. Grey import from Japan. Been driving it for nearly 2 years in Singapore now. Just got referred by Google's search engine so I'm curious to read more things about hybrids here.

Welcome.

I think you are the first person here with that vehicle. I just looked it up on Google. A hybrid minivan. I've heard quite a few people say they wish they had those here. What kind of fuel economy do you get?

Hi, I've just added my mileage calculator on my signature.
Average since I bought the car is about 13.2 km/L or 7.6L/100 km
Changed my driving style since July 2009 and average since then is 13.8 km/L or 7.3L/100 km.

Sorry, don't know the MPG equivalent.

Hi

I think there are some other Estima owners here. Do a search and you will find them.

Wish I could get one here in Canada. We are not allowed to import grey market vehicles younger than 15 years old.

I have had to mod my Previa to get better mileage now I average about 7.7. Highway mileage is better @ 6.7

Do you know if it has the THS or is it different? I saw something that made me think it's 4 wheel drive.

Yup, it's Hybrid Synergy Drive with Electric-Four (electric all-wheel drive). I think it's the equivalent of THS-II.

I don't get exceptionally good FC because of the urban conditions in our roads here. It's pretty much jammed or heavy traffic half the time. If mainly highways, I could get 15-16 km/L. In city-like conditions, I would expect 12-13 km/L even with a light foot. In comparison, the guys in Japan have clocked up as much as 15 km/L on a single tank, around 900+ km on 60+ litres.

The best FC for the petrol-only Estima/Previas here I heard of is 12+ km/L.

Thanks for posting. It's hard to find info on them in english.

Four wheel electric drive? I'm going to sound like such a nerd but that is so cool. Excellent mileage for a minivan as well.

I'm a furniture maker so I use mine for deliveries and picking up supplies. Can you fit a 4x8 sheet of ply in the back with the seats out like the Previa?
