Toyota revealed a range of new models at the 2011 Geneva motor show, including full hybrid Yaris HSD concept. Yaris HSD is a typical city car, with an emphasis on low fuel consumption and low emissions. Like all other hybrid models of Japanese brands, the Yaris will be able to run solely on electricity. Roof of concept is covered with solar panels, which could improve the performance of the hybrid system. The independent panels power the air conditioning system in the concept. Design is almost identical with the serial model. While the exterior design of the European version will be completely identical with the Japanese, the interior will be diametrically different. We expect hybrid version of yaris in market in the second half of 2012.
