Although the Alphard's first hybrid model came out in July 2003, no successor appeared for a while after its production ended in March 2008. It was in November 2011 that a new hybrid model was introduced as part of the Alphard's minor remodeling.

The front grille, front bumper, rear garnish, and reversing lamps were redesigned to give the new model a sturdier look. At the same time, light metallic blue and other new body colors were added to the existing variations. The interior also featured some changes to enhance the sense of luxury, including the speedometer design, seat fabric, and woodgrain panel colors.

The THS II hybrid system with reduction gear enabled a quieter ride, while the combination of a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine (2AZ-FXE) and the E-Four (electric four-wheel-drive) system delivered powerful acceleration and superior maneuverability. The model's fuel economy was among the best in its class, as measured both in 10-15 and JC08 modes, and its emission level was certified at 75% less than the Japanese exhaust emission standards for 2005.

The hybrid model also adopted eco plastics for part of the seat fabric and front floor carpet. The Welcab version of the hybrid model offered a Side Lift-up Seat option to facilitate ingress and egress.

"Alphard," which is derived from the Greek word "alpha," was intended to evoke an image of the brightest star in a constellation.
