There were just rumors, Toyota will not make Yaris hybrid

Toyota don't plan to bring Yaris on a hybrid version to Japan, Europe and U.S. - or anywhere else. This week, earlier we heard that the carmakers from Japan were ready to build a Yaris hybrid variant, that supposedly would reach the markets in Japan and France.

A Toyota source said 'the company has not had any discussions on the possibility of producing a Yaris hybrid in France or anywhere else. The hybrid system we have works well in the bigger cars like the Lexus as it helps to cut CO2 emissions and improve fuel economy next to its competitors'.

The news comes after we heard that the ‘supposed’ hybrid Yaris would be vital fixture in Europe on the hybrid line-up of Toyota. So, it's just a rumor apparently, which Toyota stopped right before it becoming stronger.
