2014 toyota geneva motor show: yaris hybrid - an ongoing revolution in the b-segment

The Yaris Hybrid is still the only full hybrid vehicle on sale in the European B-segment, the biggest in terms of volume. Representing 28% of Yaris total sales in 2013, it brings the benefits of this technology to a wider range of customers.

The hybrid powertrain has been optimised for installation within the vehicle's compact, extremely efficient packaging, without detriment to either system quality and performance, or passenger accommodation and loadspace. The downsized hybrid system combines a 1.5 litre petrol engine with a light, compact electric motor, transaxle, inverter and battery pack.

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 electric driving mode that emits zero NOx, PM or CO2 emissions.

With a best in segment 3.1 l/100 km in the urban cycle, the Yaris Hybrid represents the ideal choice for urban mobility.

It combines the tangible benefits of advanced technology, low emissions and unbeatable cost of ownership with a uniquely relaxed and quiet driving style. Its full hybrid system proves that driving pleasure need not be compromised by environmental responsibility and low running costs. With traditionally high residual values, Toyota hybrids also represent a great return on investment after a few years.

With Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK (TMUK) already assembling Auris Hybrid and Auris Hybrid Touring Sports, the Yaris Hybrid production at Toyota Motor Manufacturing France (TMMF) makes Toyota the only manufacturer to have two full hybrid technology production facilities in Europe.
