A) Windshield washer fluid tank.
B) Brake fluid reservoir.
C) Inverter reservoir tank.
D) Engine coolant reservoir.
E) Engine oil level dipstick (handle is yellow in color).
F) Fuse block.

Note: That all orange colored wires, are highvoltage wires. The silver box with the toyota logo on it is the hybrid inverter box. This converts the DC power from the battery into AC power for the drive motors. It also converts the AC power from the electric motors back into DC to charge the 201 volt battery. Don't mess with any of these power systems.

The inverter unit and the two electric motors are liquid cooled with a separate system from the gasoline engine. It uses the bottom about 1/3 of the radiator assembly.
