Toyota Corolla Hybrid

Hybrid cars take many different forms, petrol-electric hybrids, diesel-electric hybrids and range –extender hybrids. No matter which type you choose, hybrid vehicles provide excellent fuel economy figures and low CO2 emissions.  Toyota is one of the companies which flirt with the hybrid and electric cars segment and they have just revealed the Toyota Corolla Hybrid during an event in China.

The Toyota Corolla Hybrid will enter the Chinese market in the second part of the year. It is inspired by the ASEAN version of the Corolla. What strikes our view in terms of design modifications compared to the standard variant are new radiator grille and front bumper as well as updated headlights.

The Toyota Corolla Hybrid will be powered by a hybrid system that includes a 1.5-liter petrol engine, running on the Atkinson cycle and an electric motor. If the system is the same as the one in the Yaris Hybrid, it will output 100 HP (73kW). We still haven’t got much information regarding the engine’s configuration.
