Toyota all set to launch the brand new Yaris hybrid model
Japanese car manufacturer Toyota since they were founded back in 1937 have proven to be one of the biggest and most established companies in the vehicle industry for many years now. We have seen them have much success in the past with vehicle additions such as the Rav4 and the Aygo. They are mostly well known for city cars being made available on the market and that is where today's news story comes into play.
We are pleased to deliver on the news of an all new Yaris variant which is all set to go on sale from next month here in the United Kingdom and across other parts of the world also. This variant will come to you in the manner of a hybrid. Electronic vehicles in our mind are a certainly glimpse into the future of the car industry. We have seen many good selling EV's go on sale over the recent years some of which include the Leaf from Nissan and the i3 from German provider BMW. Toyota have also stated that the new Yaris hybrid model though will be one of the last EV models to go on sale from the manufacturer but could this prove to be a good or bad move from the mass manufacturer?
The key changes and upgrades to the Toyota Yaris hybrid
So what brand new upgrades and changes find their way into this particular model that could help it stand out and make an impact?
Well the designers have confirmed that this particular model will benefit from the use of a 1.5 litre,VVT-Ihybrid engine which will help the car out to reach a total top speed of 103 miles per hour which is helped to reach it's destination by a sprint time from 0 to 62 miles per hour in a steady time of 11.8 seconds. We see that a CVT gearbox will also be included with this particular model and it will also help the Yaris hybrid to produce a grand total of 100 brake horse power. As standard to the Yaris range, this model will only be made available as a front wheel drive variant.
Some new additional pieces of equipment also come along with this particular model that we believe could help the car stand out along side the hybrid power train. These key added features include the likes of LED running lights, a brand new headlight design and an all new set of rear bumpers too.
The Yaris has proven since it was originally first released back in 1999 that it has proven to be a fine addition to the Yaris family and in the past has proven to be some ideal competition for the likes of the Swift from Japanese designer Suzuki and the Fiesta Centure from American rival Ford.
What will the Toyota Yaris hybrid sell for?
It has been confirmed that this model will be officially available to purchase from next month here in the UK from your local Toyota dealership/showroom. In regards to how much you can expect this particular model to set you back, expect to make the purchase for a total of £16,195.
