The new Toyota Auris Hybrid will join the Toyota Avensis and be built at the Burnaston Derbyshire factory. Toyota UK's Managing Director, Katsunori Kojima, said "reaching this point shows out commitment to local production here at Burnaston and in North Wales."
The Toyota Auris Hybrid has three driving modes, electric only (EV) which offers silent emissions free driving; ECO mode gives optimum economy and Power Mode for maximum response. Energy for the electric motors is regenerated as you brake so there is no need for manual charging or leads. The Toyota Auris Hybrid features low maintenance and long life components to reduce the cost of ownership.
Using petrol-electric hybrid power, the Toyota Auris Hybrid achieves 74.3mpg and 89g/km carbon dioxide emissions, which makes it exempt from road tax and the London Congestion Charge.
There is unique hybrid exterior and interior design features available on the Toyota Auris Hybrid including unique alloy wheels, grille, bumper, LED running lights, seat trim and eco driving display and transmission.
