  1. Hello everyone, I've got Auris 2009 1.6 Valvematis S-A, since couple months there is a constant strange noise coming from the front of the car, only when driving between 30-55mph. Its not a gearbox I reckon, cuz it stays same when im switching to lower or higher gear. Other thing is it only appears when im accelerating slowly (quiet when gas pedal is not pressed). Sounds like frictions, rather low sound than high. Drove over 5k miles and it stays same, nothing over 55mph. Did anyone have same problem? Car is working fine its just that annoying sound. Thanks.
  2. Hi, I own a toyota auris hybrid 2012 and the horn sometimes doesn't work, the local dealer said it's related to the spiral cable, I saw toyota has a recall for exactly this issue but my car is not participating in this recall.

    Arm Rest for IQ3

    Hi, Just got my IQ and I'm looking for an armrest with some storage space. I've heard most of them can be flimsy and cause a lot of rattling, does anyone have any recommendations from tried and tested sellers please? Preferably that ship internationally to Malta. Thanks!

  6. I have a 2010 T27 Avensis with the standard W53828 and bluetooth hands free. The radio is a bit lacking with no support for A2DP audio streaming and I wanted to install a Touch & Go 59006 from 2012. The Touch & Go was without navigation, so I guess it's just called a Touch, but I will use the Touch & Go name in this guide. I was able to get the audio and bluetooth input working straight away with the standard Toyota ISO connectors, but the 8 pin connector used by the hands free microphone and the 20 pin connector weren't supported by the Touch & Go. The Touch & Go replaced these with a single 28 pin connector. I found this great guide by The Duffer: Unfortunately the B9012 pinout is quite different on the Touch & Go, so I had to keep searching for pinouts. Thanks to Manicat I found a pinout for the W53828 because the pictures weren't working any more in The Duffer's post I then found the pinout for the 59006 in JesseFDB and Keefer's posts on the GT86 owners forum: Fortunately I had already bought this cable to enable a reversing camera, and extra video channel so I had the 28 Pin ISO connector which is required to complete this project: I've seen these 28 pin connectors for sale on Alibaba, but only in large quantities. If someone else knows another source please post here to help anyone who wants to complete this project on a budget. Of course if you get your Touch and Go from a salvage car, try to cut out the wiring harnesses that are attached to it and then you will have the donor connector. To get hands free microphone working I cut off the 8 pin connector (this may be more easy to find then the 20 and 28 pin ISO if you prefer not to cut) and put on bullet style connectors. I then made the following connections: Old 8 Pin New 28 pin connector black pin 3 MACC mic power pin 4 white pin 2 MIN+ pin 5 pin 1 darker Blue SNS Mic pin 6 purple (some sources green) pin 6 SGND pin 18 red pin 5 MIN- pin 19 To get steering wheel controls working I made these connections: Old 20 pin New 28 pin connector pin 7 pink sw1 (some sources purple) pin 21 pin 8 light blue sw2 pin 22 pin 6 purple swg (some sources violet) pin 23 I still need to figure out which connectors are for dimming (brightness/ headlights) and which are giving OBD like information for the trip information. Maybe there is another connector that uses CAN Bus or similar that isn't supported in my pre-facelift 2010 T27 Avensis. My pinout on the old 20 pin connector looked different (see attachment) to the Manicat post so I am hopeful that the required connectors are there and I just need to keep searching for a better pin out. If anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share. I'm definitely happy with the upgrade, and hope this helps others. I'm curious if this would also work for the Touch & Go 2. It uses the same 28 pin connector, and I thought I read it is a straight swap so this guide may be applicable to Touch & Go 2. Any input on this would also be appreciated.
  7. I have Toyota aygo 2007 automatic petrol, and its making noise when i'm accelerating it hard mostly on high way and now even on normal roads. I have attached the video please check, What you think what can be the issue? VID_20180811_203735.mp4

    Air Con Amplifier

    Hi there. I do need your help which i do believe will save me for a mass amount of money. My air con amp has issues and does not allow to the air condition to work properly. I spoke with toyota and to replace the existing one with a new one will cost me around 500 euros. I saw many used amps in the ebay but not with the same code with mine. so my question is whether another amplifier matching mine without having the same code. My IQ has a date of 01/09 automatic and the amplifier code is 88650-74030.Thank you!
  9. Toyota will begin the fifth leg of the Five Continents Drive project in Africa at the end of August, continuing its global test marathon to gather worldwide knowledge and experience of roads, driving and car ownership The latest stage of the marathon journey follows the completion of treks across Australia in 2014, the Americas in 2015 and 2016 and Europe in 2017. During the European drive last year the route included six days travelling through England and Northern Ireland on a mix of motorways, urban streets and rural roads and a visit to Toyota’s car manufacturing plant at Burnaston in Derbyshire. For this section of the drive, Toyota members will be joined by colleagues from Suzuki Motor Corporation, Hino Motors and Toyota Auto Body. By experiencing the different cultures, climates and harsh environments in which the vehicles are used, the project aims to help the participants better understand the needs of customers and consider what sort of vehicles will be best suited to the African market in the future. The Five Continents Drive is being carried out under the organisational umbrella of Toyota Gazoo Racing. Toyota employees and local affiliates drive the cars themselves on roads used every day by Toyota customers. The aim is to develop human skills to support Toyota’s commitment to making “ever-better cars”. The latest leg of the drive will run until the beginning of November with two teams driving across eastern and southern Africa, covering more than 9,000 miles. They will experience commuter routes, unpaved roads, desert and safari trails and high-altitude mountain passes, focusing on all-wheel-drive vehicles such as Land Cruiser, Hilux and Fortuner.

    Estima generations

    A forum thread for owners of, and those interested in, the Japanese Toyota Estima.
  11. The Toyota Gazoo Racing World Rally Team claimed an emphatic victory on home turf on Sunday with Ott Tänak powering to an impressive win on Rally Finland. He was joined on the podium by team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala who clinched third place Tänak, whose victory was witnessed by Toyota President Akio Toyoda, said: “It has been a perfect weekend, everything worked as we wanted. We had the ideal preparation and full support from the team. If you work together as one, then these kinds of results are achievable.” Across the four days of the event, the Toyota Yaris WRC was the dominant car, claiming fastest times on 18 of the 23 gravel stages. Estonian Tänak and co-driver Martin Järveoja led almost throughout, engaging in a close fight with the Citroën of Mads Osterberg on Friday. In spite of an unfavourable road position, he took control as the day unfolded, stretching his advantage over the Norwegian to 5.8 seconds by the close. Latvala was running third and Esapekka Lappi eighth after losing time with a stall on the opening stage of the day. Saturday proved exceptional with all three Toyota drivers featured in a clean-sweep of stage wins, including a top-three lock-out of three consecutive stages in the afternoon. Tänak and Latvala consolidated their positions, while Lappi leapt four places up the leaderboard to fourth. Lappi crashed out of contention on Sunday’s opening stage, but Latvala remained on the pace with two further stage wins. Tänak’s victory in the final Power Stage added five bonus points to his tally. The result moves the Toyota Gazoo Racing World Rally Team to within one point of second place in the manufacturers’ championship, while Tänak has narrowed the gap to the top two in the drivers’ standings. Round nine of the WRC season will be Rallye Deutschland (Germany) on August 16 to 19. The event is in effect three asphalt rallies in one, divided between twisting roads through the Mosel vineyards, the notoriously tough Baumholder military area and the fast country lanes of the Saarland. FINAL RESULT, RALLY FINLAND 1 Ott Tänak/Martin Järveoja (Toyota Yaris WRC) 2h35m18.1s 2 Mads Ostberg/Torstein Eriksen (Citroen C3 WRC) +32.7s 3 Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila (Toyota Yaris WRC) +35.5s 4 Hayden Paddon/Seb Marshall (Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC) +1m35.6s 5 Sebastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia (Ford Fiesta WRC) +2m15.0s 6 Teemu Suninen/Mikko Markkula (Ford Fiesta WRC) +2m19.2s 7 Elfyn Evans/Daniel Barritt (Ford Fiesta WRC) +2m29.5s 8 Craig Breen/Scott Martin (Citroen C3 WRC) +3m08.4s 9 Thierry Neuville/Nicolas Gilsoul (Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC) +3m51.8s 10 Andreas Mikkelsen/Anders Jaeger (Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC) +8m37.4s Retired Esapekka Lappi/Janne Ferm (Toyota Yaris WRC)
  12. On Friday, Toyota UK (@ToyotaUK) and Toyota Europe (@toyota_Europe) invited the Supra Owners club to a facility in Gatwick, for a special access event to the new supra. I was unable to attend unfortunately, but from what I can tell, those who did attend, had more privileged access than the media had at Goodwood. (The event will NOT be repeated elsewhere 😞) I wont go into detail about the car, as there is enough discussion allready, on places like the owner forums, Facebook and so on. Also floating around is a lot more photos and videos. Here is two pics though to give you an idea: Picture credits to Mike cattle and JB Branners.
  13. Hi guys, Hope everyone is having a good Christmas. After a short break from Ravs (not my choice due to a company vehicle) I'm now back in a 2011 D4D manual. I love everything about it except the fuel economy, or should I say lack of it! I've had a 2002 and last was a 2007 rav4 both diesels and both averaged around 40 mpg with a mixture of driving them hard and careful and long and short runs. Nothing much as changed to usage, but this latest 2011 one is only averaging around 30mpg. I know it's slightly up on hp to 150bhp, but on paper (and I know you have to take them with a slight pinch of salt) the figures show it should be even better on fuel than the previous two models. Has anyone else had the same issues or know if they are all like it please? Oh just to add its only done 43K and full Toyota SH. Ive been running it on Shell diesel since buying it in October, with Miller Oil eco max diesel additive to to try and clean up they system as I suspect it will have been run on supermarket diesel. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Scrappage scheme customer savings on current Toyota Aygo models increased to £2,000 Super-efficient Yaris Hybrid added to the wide range of models accessible through the scheme Toyota’s initiative succeeding in taking older, higher polluting cars off the road with more than 7,000 orders since launch Toyota’s scrappage scheme is delivering even greater benefits to customers this summer, with increased savings and more new models to choose from, true to its mission to help take older, higher-polluting cars off the road Throughout June, people who wish to replace their old cars with a brand new Toyota Aygo city car will qualify for £2,000 off the price tag – adding an extra £500 to the current offer.

And with a host of customisation options and vibrant colour schemes, customers can create just the look they want for their car. Yaris Hybrid has been reintroduced to the wide range of Toyota models accessible through the scheme, with a customer saving of £1,500.

With the extra incentives we have added for the coming month, we’re expecting this positive momentum to continue, introducing more people to the Toyota brand and the quality of our extensive product line-up.” In outline, the scrappage scheme enables owners of cars and commercial vehicles – both petrol and diesel – registered up to and including 30 June 2010, to trade in their vehicle against a qualifying new Toyota car or light commercial vehicle. Customers must have owned their vehicle for a minimum of six months. Other terms and conditions apply, full details are available or from Toyota retailers.

  16. Toyota is treating the drivers of tomorrow to a hands-on experience that lets them take the wheel of a colourful car at the International Tokyo Toy Show. The Camatte Journey gives youngsters the chance to take a simulated trip past some of the world’s greatest travel destinations, the central feature in Toyota’s presentation at the international exhibition next week (7 to 10 June) It’s the latest in a series of Camatte models and activities Toyota has showcased at the fair since 2012 to help children learn about the basics of driving and how cars work in a way that builds interest and excitement for the next generation of motorists. The Camatte Journey mixes both real and virtual experiences. Children will be able to sit inside an adapted version of the Camatte Petta miniature car, decorated with colourful stickers from worldwide travel destinations and even featuring a vintage trunk mounted on the boot. They will learn about the position of the brake and accelerator pedals using a tablet before moving off in the car down a short course, with changing landscapes projected onto a 220-degree screen to create the effect of going on a real journey. The Camatte Petta is an open-top, three-seater car, measuring a little over three metres long and powered by an electric motor. This year’s Toyota stand will also feature the Camatte57s Sport, a model first seen in 2013, with rides available for those young visitors who aren’t able to take a ride on the simulated Camatte Journey. Overview of the Toyota Camatte series Toyota exhibited its first Camatte vehicle in 2012, the Camatte Sora. This was designed to be easy for children to drive and to customise, with different colour body panels that were simple to install and remove. The following year the Camatte57s Sport was revealed, featuring 57 small, detachable panels that can be assembled like a puzzle. In 2014, the Camatte Lab allowed children to display pictures they had drawn on the car’s bonnet and take a close-up look at its inner workings. The Camatte Hajime and Camatte Vision appeared in 2015, which used augmented reality technology to give children a simulated experience of driving through a town in car they had specified to their own designs. Next came the Camatte Capsule, with a customisable interior space, followed by the Camatte Petta, which debuted in 2017.

  18. Hello there everyone, I am new to this forum because I have my Toyota Avnesis 2002 1.6 vvti for no more then a couple of months. I have the following problem. As i read the 1.6 vvti and 1.8 vvti engines have a manufacturing problem where their pistons don't have enough holes and as a result they burn oil. I wanted to ask if someone know what is the right type of pistons for my 1.6 vvti engine to replace the problematic pistons and to stop the consumption of oil. Thanks a lot in advance !
  19. Toyota Gazoo Racing is extending its activities to connect with grassroots motorsport in Europe with a new competition for drivers of Toyota GT86 race and rally cars. The Toyota Gazoo Racing Trophy is open to drivers of the Toyota Motorsport (TMG) engineered GT86 CS-V3 and CS-Cup race cars and CS-R3 rally car. For maximum flexibility, cars can be entered in one or more competition series in Europe and earn trophy points based on the size of the grid and level of competition. There are no specific technical regulations and no entry fee, giving GT86 owners a great opportunity to compete for a significant prize fund at no additional cost. The final trophy standings will be determined by the 10 best registered results from each competitor in 2018. The winning driver will collect a €35,000 (approx. £31,000) prize plus a Toyota C-HR road car; second place will be rewarded with €25,000 (approx. £22,000) and €20,000 (approx. £17,700) will go to the third placed driver. Emanuele Battisti, TMB Customer Motorsport Project Leader, said: “The Toyota Gazoo Racing Trophy is an exciting project that brings together a large number of competitors from different disciplines to compete for the title. Combining race and rally cars in the same competition is a very interesting aspect to the competition and we believe this will create excitement for both participants and fans.” GT86 race cars will score Trophy points from any championship within Europe for which the car meets local technical regulations. Following five seasons of the GT86 Cup at the Nürburgring, TMG expects plenty of Trophy competitors taking part in the VLN, RCN and 24-hour race, while other events such as the 24H Series Powered by Hankook, the DMV GTC and NES 500 are also expected to include Trophy competitors. Rally entrants can also compete in any European-based event, with Trophy points determined by the competitor’s finishing position compared with other R2 or R3 homologated cars, guaranteeing flexibility for customers within the diverse rally arena. Based on previous seasons, TMG expects to see the GT86 CS-R3 competing in championships such as the Tour European Rally Series, the German Rally Championship and the FIA European Rally Championship, as well as in various national championships. In both race and rally, the length of event and number of competitors have a significant effect on the number of Trophy points available. The highest possible score per event is 75, which is available for victory in a class of five or more cars in a 24-hour race, or rally with 200km or more of special stages.

  20. Toyota returns as the Official Car Partner to the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB Fleet of C-HR, Hilux, Land Cruiser and Proace Verso models, including hybrid electric vehicles, will be used to help the smooth running of the event in October A “home” event for Toyota which builds hybrid engines at its Deeside plant in North Wales Toyota Yaris WRC targeting further victories in 2018 following its win on Rally Argentina Toyota has renewed its support for Dayinsure Wales Rally GB, confirming it will return as the Official Car Partner for the UK round of the FIA World Wally Championship this autumn (4-7 October) For this first time in its history, the rally will include competition on closed sections of public roads, with a fleet of Toyota vehicles helping to make it happen safely and efficiently. The company will be supplying a fleet of liveried vehicles for use by the rally’s organisation team, safety crews and international dignitaries. The breadth and versatility of the Toyota range will be represented, with Land Cruiser SUVs used as safety cars running through the rally route ahead of the cars, Hilux pick-ups helping with the set-up of the special stages – including the new street stage in Llandudno – and Proace Verso MPVs ferrying personnel between venues. C-HR hybrid electric crossovers will also be used. Appropriately these feature engines produced at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s plant in Deeside, home to the event’s Rally Village headquarters since 2013. Toyota returned to the WRC in 2017 with a factory-backed team, run by four-time World Rally Champion Tommi Mäkinen. The new Toyota Gazoo Racing World Rally Team made an immediate impression on their debut in 2017 with the experienced Jari-Matti Latvala and the sport’s new young sensation Esapekka Lappi winning respectively in Sweden and Finland. Now the team’s latest signing, Ott Tänak, has added a third success to the Yaris WRC’s roster with a dominant victory last time out in Argentina. “It has been a pleasure to join forces with Toyota for the past six years and we are delighted it is extending its role as Official Car Partner to Wales Rally GB for what’s clearly going to be a special event in October,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of Wales Rally GB. “Whether it’s setting up the spectacular new street stage in Llandudno or making sure spectators are safe in the forests, the logistics and demands of staging a major World Championship event are enormous, and we couldn’t overcome these challenges without the support of major partners such as Toyota. Its fleet of cars and SUVs proved absolutely invaluable to the successful organisation and running of last year’s Dayinsure Wales Rally GB and will do so again come October.” Andrew Cullis, Toyota (GB) Marketing Director, said: “We are proud that while the Toyota Yaris WRC will be providing thrilling action on the stages, our road-going cars, SUVs and pick-ups will be also be playing their part in making the rally a success. Organising a World Championship rally is a huge logistical undertaking and we are pleased once again to be helping the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB organisers to host an event that runs smoothly and safely for everyone, teams and spectators alike". “Toyota is proud of its manufacturing history in Wales and the UK, which makes it all the more rewarding for us to be involved in one of the country’s largest and most exciting motorsports events.”

    ABS fault

    Hi, My abs light has been on for a few months now it started as being every now and again but it's been on constantly for maybe just over a month now and I'm in no situation to be paying the ridiculous costs my local garage are wanting to charge me they've quoted £70 for a diagnostic before any work and told me to expect the worst as normally when abs comes on its the ECU that may need replacing and I'd be looking at around the £500 mark so I've decided to have a look myself. So I found a video on YouTube about resetting the ABS light by connecting a jumper wire from pin 4 to pin 13 where the OBD sensor goes and pressing the brake 8 times. This hasn't reset the light but I've managed to read the code it's giving. The ABS flashes 3 times pauses then 7 times before going off for roughly 4 seconds then repeating again. I've read somewhere that code 37 is a faulty rear speed sensor rotor and was wondering if anyone could explain to me how I would go about checking that part and possibly replacing it if it needs replacing? I have basic electrical engineering knowledge with me working as a technician so I think I'd be able to fix this myself 🤣
  22. The Toyota Land Cruiser’s ‘unstoppable’ muscle is being wielded in a wider market with the launch of the UK’s first commercial vehicle versions of the legendary SUV. The new models come with all the built-in quality, durability and reliability that have earned Land Cruiser a worldwide reputation for go-anywhere performance. With a robust, body-on-frame construction, proven all-wheel drive capability and a highly capable 2.8-litre D-4D engine, the Land Cruiser Utility Commercial has the perfect pedigree to be a formidable workhorse. Gareth Matthews, Toyota Light Commercial Vehicle Manager said: “Bringing the exceptional strength of Land Cruiser to our LCV line-up adds a valuable new dimension to the range, alongside the rugged Hilux pick-up and versatile Proace medium-duty van. We are sure that the quality and performance that have made Land Cruiser such a strong performer worldwide will be sought after by customers who need a vehicle they can rely on to do the job, every time.” Short- and long-wheelbase versions are available with three and five doors respectively, sharing the same smart body styling as the recently launched new 2018 Land Cruiser. Overall length is 4,395mm for the SWB and 4,840 for the LWB; both vehicles are 1,885mm wide, with the three-door measuring 1,830mm high and the five-door 1,845mm. Inside, the rear seats have been removed to create a spacious load area, extending to 1,574 litres in the SWB and 2,216 litres in the LWB; respective payloads are up to 593 and 756kg respectively (according to vehicle kerb weight). Both vehicles can tow braked trailers with loads of up to three tonnes. The load space is designed to be practical and hard-wearing with an edge-to-edge non-slip flat floor tray. The division between the front cabin and rear cargo area is a full height metal bulkhead with a strong mesh top section fitted with a hatch for easy access. Loading is via the wide-opening side-hinged tailgate, or (on five-door models) through either of the rear side doors. The rear windows are blanked out with panels that match the Land Cruiser’s body colour. The no-nonsense character of the Land Cruiser Utility Commercial is reflected in its 17-inch steel wheels, but where cabin comfort, convenience and safety are concerned, the provisions are generous. The two front seats have cloth upholstery and adjustable head restraints. Standard features include air conditioning, cruise control and a six-speaker audio system with CD player, Bluetooth and (on the LWB model) Aux-in and USB connections. Dusk-sensing headlights, smart entry, front fog lights and roof rails are also included in the specification. Front, side and driver’s knee airbags are fitted and the vehicle is equipped with Multi-terrain ABS, Active Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control, Trailer Sway Control and a tyre pressure warning system. The new models are on sale from 1 April, with commercial vehicle on-the-road prices of £27,546 for the SWB model and £28,509 for the LWB. Deliveries to customers will commence in July. Land Cruiser Utility Commercial: off-road thoroughbred Like its passenger vehicle counterpart, the Land Cruiser Utility Commercial is designed and engineered to cope with demanding off-road conditions. The Land Cruiser LWB has a minimum ground clearance of 215mm; for the SWB model the figure is 205mm. The approach angle, which determines the maximum gradient the vehicle can approach without the underside of the front bumper hitting the ground, is 31 degrees. Its maximum wading depth is 700mm. Even with such generous ground clearance, there can be a risk of the underside of the vehicle hitting the ground when driving over very rough terrain. For this reason, both the front and rear bumpers and ladder frame cross-member have been designed to slide easily over any obstacles. Many other SUVs have box-shaped cross-members, which means they can easily become caught on obstacles, bringing the vehicle to a halt and potentially causing damage; Land Cruiser’s slanted cross-member is shaped so that it can slide up and over such hazards. The vehicle is engineered to excel over sand, rocks or any other demanding conditions it might encounter; giving maximum traction at all times to deliver the level of off-road performance for which the model is world-renowned. Its proven permanent four-wheel drive system uses a Torsen limited-slip centre differential and a shift actuator which makes for easier shifting between the high and low ranges of the six-speed manual transmission. Land Cruiser Utility Commercial: 2.8 D-4D engine Land Cruiser’s 2.8-litre D-4D turbodiesel engine is a 2,755cc 16-valve DOHC unit which develops 175bhp at 3,400rpm. Paired to a six-speed manual transmission, it produces 420Nm in the SWB model and 450Nm in the LWB, available from 1,400 to 2,600rpm. It will accelerate the vehicle from rest to 62mph in 12.1 seconds, and on to a 108mph top speed. Official combined cycle fuel consumption (LWB) is 38.1mpg with 194g/km CO2 emissions.

  24. It’s not often a family-friendly hatchback gets to muscle in on the limelight among the glamorous concepts and high-powered machines at an international motor show, but the all-new Toyota Auris prompted an enthusiastic media response with its world debut appearance at the Geneva Motor Show. The hot new look that set the cameras whirring is thanks to something that lies beneath the surface: TNGA – the Toyota New Global Architecture – is the key that’s unlocking an exciting new era of Toyota design. The freedom to produce stronger, more attractive vehicle styling is one of the multiple benefits gained from using the TNGA platform. The new, third-generation Auris follows the Toyota Prius and C-HR in adopting TNGA, which lets the car sit closer to the ground, allowing for a more athletic design to be produced with lower lines all round and a more dynamic profile. TNGA also defines standard lay-outs for a range of components, such as the foot pedals, driver’s seat and steering column, making the design process much simpler. Where previously, fine millimetre adjustments would be made to perfect the principal interior elements of each new model, the design teams can make their choice from a small number of perfectly defined and effective formats. This doesn’t mean each new Toyota will look much the same; in fact, with most of the shared elements out of sight, it is easier to create a different look and to achieve higher ergonomic performance for ease of use and comfort. The new model is 40mm longer than the current Auris hatch, thanks entirely to a longer wheelbase. It is 23mm lower and, directly attributable to TNGA, the cowl height is 47mm lower, giving the driver a much-improved field of vision. The exterior styling features contemporary Toyota design cues, including a catamaran-shape generated in the front-end arrangement that flanks a large, trapezoidal grille. This adds more visual weight to the car’s 30mm increase in width. The rear is equally striking, with a rounded treatment to the tailgate, a more steeply raked rear screen and muscular haunches. Of course, no one outside Toyota has yet had the chance to drive the new Auris, but again, TNGA will be central to improved handling response, stability and comfort, helped by the platform’s low centre of gravity, improved front-to-rear weight balance and significantly increased body rigidity. Toyota Manufacturing UK’s Burnaston car plant in Derbyshire is the centre for European Auris production, with most of the car’s new engines being supplied from the TMUK plant in Deeside, North Wales. Auris will be the first Toyota model in Europe to be offered with a choice of two hybrid electric powertrains, including a new, higher power 2.0-litre system. TMUK has benefited from £240 million investment to prepare the factory for TNGA vehicle production, including new equipment, technologies, systems and member training.
  25. The Metropolitan Police Service is set to team up with the Toyota Mirai to help create the world’s largest fleet of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric police vehicles The first of 11 cars have been delivered to the Met with support from the FCHJU* grants programme and are equipped to work as both marked and unmarked vehicles for overt and covert response, as well as general purpose use. The only tailpipe emission they will produce is water – a by-product of the fuel cell process, turning hydrogen into electricity to power the vehicle. Their zero-emission performance will help the Met in its efforts supporting the Mayor of London’s clean air strategy. The Mirai will have access to five hydrogen filling stations across the capital – a number that’s set to increase in the months and years ahead. On a tank of fuel, each car will be able to cover approximately 300 miles. Met Commander Neil Jerome said: “We are delighted to have taken delivery of 11 of these cars to support policing in London. They are our first entirely zero emission response vehicles and this is an exciting development for us. “The Met is committed, alongside the Mayor, to making the service as environmentally friendly as possible and a big part of that work is ensuring our fleet is green. Since late 2015 we have been actively looking at ways to hybridise and electrify our fleet as well as exploring other new technologies such as hydrogen" “This is enabling us to make great strides towards our ambition of procuring 550 vehicles as zero or ultra-low emission by 2020.” Shirley Rodrigues, Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy said: “It is fantastic to see the Met’s first-ever zero-emission vehicles take to the streets of London. Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles have an important role to play in helping lower harmful emissions and improve air quality on our roads and the Mayor’s Hydrogen London partnership is working to develop the use of this technology in the capital. The Mayor is determined to take the bold action needed to protect Londoners from our toxic air and this move highlights how the capital’s emergency services are leading by example and supporting his work towards becoming a zero-carbon city by 2050.” Mark Roden, Director of Operations for Toyota GB said: "We are delighted that the Met Police has added Mirai vehicles to its fleet. The distinctive livery of the Met’s marked cars means even more public visibility for hydrogen-powered cars in and around London. This is proof that organisations are seeing the future of hydrogen power for zero-emission fleets". *The project for the Metropolitan Police Service to establish and operate a fleet of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles has received grant funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No671438. This joint undertaking receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, Hydrogen Europe and the New European Research Grouping on Fuel Cells and Energy (“N.ERGHY”).
