Toyota Yaris Hybrid

Toyoya Yaris Hybrid Motability carThe Toyota Yaris Hybrid is a welcome addition to the scheme. The five door Yaris Hybrid is better looking than the standard Yaris as it has a neater front grille, a slightly bigger rear bumper and daytime running lights, but it is what is under the bonnet that makes this Yaris so special, the 1.5 litre petrol engine is helped along by a small electric motor that power the Yaris in tandem for normal driving but when traveling under 18 miles per hour the Yaris will run on battery power alone, using no petrol or producing any exhaust fumes. The advantage of a Hybrid is that unlike an electric car you do not have to plug the car into a power supply to charge, the batteries are charged by the petrol engine under normal driving.

The Hybrid Yaris produces only 75g of CO2 as Icon or 82g as Excel, as it simply has more things to power, this makes the Hybrid Yaris one of the Greenest car on the Scheme,  but it is not underpowered, the two engines produce a combined 100 brake horse power and the Hybrid Yaris can reach 62 miles per hour in 11.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 103 mph, but it is economy where the Yaris excels, 80.7 miles per gallon on a combined cycle but around town this car can reach over 90 miles per gallon. As with most Hybrids the Yaris is only available with a CVT, Continuous Variable Transmission gearbox as the power comes from two sources, they are not the most fun but under normal driving conditions are as good as a traditional Automatic.
