Toyota is to undertake European road trials of an electric-powered version of its iQ city car from next year.
Home honours were claimed by the England A Auris hybrid in the Toyota Nations Challenge on Saturday, achieving an average 72.8mpg over the 60-mile route from Brighton to London.
For the historic vehicles taking part in the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, simply completing the 60-mile route might be considered achievement. A quite different test faces the fleet of hybrid Toyota models that will be to the fore in the first Brighton to London Future Car Challenge.
Toyota and the Clean Energy Partnership announced today (5 March) that Toyota has become a new international auto partner for the organisation.
Toyota has developed a new fuel cell hybrid vehicle that travels more than double the distance of its predecessor model, increasing the maximum cruising range from 205 miles to 515 miles.
