Hybrid Synergy Drive / Power Split Device (PSD)
The technology behind the Toyota Prius’ Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) is pretty amazing. At it’s core is an elegant but fairly simple little set of gears named the PSD, or Power Split Device. Operating in a planetary manner, the PSD eliminates the necessity of having a traditional stepped gearbox and transmission components. This effectively removes the typically familiar lurch and rev acceleration found in gas-powered cars and trucks. It functions like a continuously variable transmission (CVT), but with a fixed gear ratio.
This is only one example of the primary differences in Hybrid technology that make specialized training a necessity in order to maintain and repair these technologically advanced vehicles. Another reason why our trained, experienced, and knowledgeable technicians should make Courtesy your first choice when it comes to servicing your Hybrid.
