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.
