July launch for 89g/km Toyota Auris hybrid
02 March 2010
Toyota will introduce a full hybrid version of the Auris in July this year.
Revealed today at the Geneva motor show, the Auris HSD will be built in the UK and offered in two versions; an 89g/km emissions and 74.3mpg model and a 93g/km emissions and 70.6mpg version. Toyota has yet to explain what sets the two apart.
However, the Auris will share much of the hybrid engine technology fitted in the current generation Prius, including 1.8-litre petrol engine.
The model moves Toyota along its plan to offer a hybrid version of every model it makes by 2020.
