Toyota reveals its Yaris hybrid

TOYOTA also chose yesterday to show off the first pictures of its new Yaris Hybrid -- again ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The company has downsized Hybrid Synergy Drive -- effectively the driving force behind the whole concept -- for the Yaris.

It combines a new 1.5-litre petrol engine with a smaller electric motor, transaxle, inverter and battery pack.

That makes it 20pc lighter than that used in the Auris Hybrid which has recently gone on sale here.
