The new Toyota Yaris Hybrid is the first full hybrid vehicle to go on sale in the European B-segment. The Yaris model range flagship, it represents a new and unique offer in Europe’s highest sales volume segment, and will bring the benefits of full hybrid technology to a wider range of customers than ever before.
The Yaris is Toyota’s best-selling core model in Europe, with more than 2.5 million units sold. It is the only B-segment car to offer customers the choice of 3 different powertrain types – full hybrid, diesel or petrol. Combining the ingenious packaging and urban agility of the Yaris model range with the unique driving experience and efficiency of Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD), the Toyota Yaris Hybrid is a new major step in the company’s full hybrid European roll-out strategy. With low fuel consumption, low environmental impact, strong acceleration, great manoeuvrability and unique EV capabilities, it represents the ultimate urban car.
The new powertrain has been optimised for installation within the vehicle’s compact, extremely efficient packaging design, without detriment to either system quality and performance, or passenger accommodation and loadspace. The downsized hybrid system combines a substantially re-engineered 1.5 litre petrol engine with a lighter, more compact electric motor, transaxle, inverter and battery pack. The highly efficient powertrain offers the best balance of performance and fuel consumption/CO2 emissions in the B segment. It delivers an average fuel consumption of just 3.5 l/100 km and segment-best CO2 emissions of only 79 g/km, whilst allowing customers frequent, all-electric driving periods that emit no NOx, PM or CO2 emissions.
