Toyota is rolling their spin machine on the new Toyota Auris HSD Full Hybrid Concept. The study will have its moment in the spotlight at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this month, before hitting the salesroom floors next year.
Even though the car can be driven either on petrol alone, or just electric, it can also run on a combination of the two. Unfortunately, the engine's power figures do leave quite a bit to be desired. Although it uses a reasonably sized engine, featuring a 1.8-liter displacement, it only manages to put out 97 horsepower. This leads to a 0-100 km/h time of "around 10 seconds," which means that the car probably hits 100 in 10 to 10.5 seconds under lab conditions, and maybe a second slower in the real world.
Mercedes SLS AMG Trailer
The Mercedes Benz SLS AMG is going to celebrate its world premiere at this
year's IAA in Frankfort. The super sportscar thrills with puristic design,
consequent lightweight construction and superb driving dynamics. Under the
bonnet of the gullwinged car there is an AMG 6.3 litre-V8-front-middle
engine working with 571 PS max. performance. Inspite of its sportiness the
car meets all the high demands towards safety and every-day-usability.

It can churn out between 588kW (800hp) and 735kW (1,000hp), all of which is
channeled to all four wheels using the AWD system. Standard fuel is petrol
but ethanol can be used as an alternative. To stop it running away from the
driver is a set of powerful carbon ceramic brakes.

Toyota Auris Hybrid Review - Auto Express
It's priced competitively against 2.0-litre diesel rivals, and offers a
different hybrid proposition to the Prius, mainly because it looks like a
normal car. Just like its stablemate, the Auris is great around town. But
the familiar hybrid foibles remain, with a harsh note under acceleration
and average economy. So on the motorway, good though the newcomer is, we'd
still recommend a diesel instead.
