Hybrid Yaris........

Recommended Posts

You will see more and more Hybrids over the next few years and diesel engines will start to reduce as tougher emission and particulate levels are introduced

Kingo :thumbsup:

Interesting - As you say, judging by the "sunk" rear suspension, this particular prototype seems to have its boot full of something heavy like batteries....

This also gives you an idea of the "next Yaris" although apart from the new headlights and restyled bumpers, I can't spot much different. I was expecting a bigger change for next revision, given the "hype".

Interestingly, there's another article on the same Autocar web site suggesting that all Toyotas are going to get a new "family face" - and the example they show of that new face looks nothing like the new Yaris hybrid spy picture...

So I dunno.

There's obviously a Yaris revision coming somewhere with different headlights, because those shape headlights aren't sold on any current model in Asia, Europe or the Americas but maybe that's just an "interim change" and there's a bigger revision coming later with the new family face....

I hope they don't make the petrol tank any smaller with the hybrid. Since swapping a Mk1 1.0 for a Mk2 1.3 with the smaller tank, my "safe range" on full tank has gone down from 400 miles to just 300 miles and that's annoyingly frequent...

I think they've just filled the rear space with loads of batteries into standard Yaris and try it as a hybrid. You can see the rear axle to give up on a first speed bump :D
