Yaris Hybrid records CO2 emissions of 79g/km
24 February 2012 | The new Yaris Hybrid promises to be the most CO2 efficient combustion engine vehicle in the mainstream market, at 79g/km, with fuel economy of 80.7mpg. Yaris Hybrid will be available in the UK for less than £15,000 OTR, making it the most affordable hybrid on sale in the UK.
Thanks to the full hybrid powertrain, Yaris Hybrid can deliver 79 g/km, 80.7 mpg, and 99 bhp. Part of the genius of the full hybrid system is minimising the time on any given journey when the petrol engine is running. These "zero-emission" periods can be as much as one third of a typical urban journey.
The CO2 figure of just 79 g/km delivers real running cost benefits for drivers. It means Yaris Hybrid qualifies for free road tax in the UK, and is exempt from the London congestion charge. For company car drivers, the record low CO2 emissions fall well within the lowest Benefit In Kind (BIK) taxation band of 10%.
Yaris Hybrid is available for pre-order from Toyota showrooms now. Customer deliveries commence from 1st July.
