Mistakenly put (-) to (+) while jump starting another car. CT was the donor car. Took me 30sec to a min to realise. There was smoke from the CT connector (+), burnt plastic a bit.

Damaged the Electrical unit somehow as the EV mode is not anymore functional. Car is driving on petrol instead of electricity start till end.

Taking it to doctor tomorrow for sure. Just want to know how bad the damage is in case anyone knows.

FYI - They do not recommend jumping another car off of the CT or other Toyota/Lexus hybrid. This is due to the smaller 12V battery not really being great at providing that level of power.
Even if you jumped it correctly, there are too many opportunities for something to go wrong with the 12V system.

I highly recommend reading your manual.
