With its all new dynamic design and a new generation hybrid synergy drive, the Toyota launches its first ever Corolla Hybrid.

30 Nov 2018 | International News : Los Angeles


With its bumper-to-bumper, wheels-to-roof transformation, the 2020 Toyota Corolla was already big news in sedans for 2019. And now comes the ultimate 'But wait, there's more!' bonus: A new hybrid model that achieves at least 50mpg combined fuel economy (projected). That makes the 2020 Corolla Hybrid the most fuel efficient model to ever wear the model name that debuted more than half a century ago.
 
This high-efficiency model adapts the latest Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive from the new generation Prius
The 2020 Corolla Hybrid, like its gas-powered siblings, delivers a highly-satisfying driving experience, along with the brand's latest advances in comfort and multimedia technology. As on the 2020 Corolla gas models, the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of active safety systems comes standard.

The new hybrid system combines a 1.8-litre four-cylinder gasoline engine with two motor/generators through an electronically controlled planetary-type CVT transaxle. Combined system output of 121bhp yields decidedly responsive performance.
 
The nickel metal hydride battery pack employs a newly developed technology called Hyper-Prime Nickel to boost battery performance in a smaller and lighter package. The battery's smaller size and flatter shape allow it to be packaged under the rear seat, rather than taking up trunk space, and also allowing a 60/40 split folding rear seatback to expand cargo capacity. The battery location also contributes to the vehicle's lower center of gravity, a boon to agility.
 
The instrument panel uses a high-grade meter with a 7.0-inch Multi-Information Display (MID). The MID shows the speedometer, as well as a hybrid system indicator/real-time battery charge status indicator. ECO accelerator guidance, also shown in the MID, can provide a guideline for maximising fuel efficiency by coaching the driver on optimal accelerator pedal operation to match driving conditions. Drivers who like the visual appeal of seeing engine rpm can choose to display a tachometer.
