HSD 2011

designed for the European market, the HSD (Hybrid Synergy Drive) full hybrid technology to a model at the heart of Toyota’s line-up. It marks the first in the deployment of HSD technology across the entire European model by the early 2020s. Latest-generation Hybrid Synergy Drive to class-leading CO 2 emissions and combined fuel economy.

It will be in Two versions in Europe delivering emissions and 74.3mpg combined fuel economy and 93g/km and 70.6mpg combined cycle economy.

Exclusively designed for the European the Auris HSD (Hybrid Synergy introduces full hybrid to a core model at the heart of model line-up. It marks the step in the deployment of HSD technology the company’s entire European range by the early 2020s.

Built in Britain at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s Burnaston it targets an important shift in perceptions of full hybrid technology.

The prospect of Britain and first home-manufactured full model was welcomed by the UK Government. Minister Ian Lucas said: delighted that Toyota has its UK plants to produce the first Toyota hybrid car and I look to seeing it when I’m in for the Motor Show. Toyota’s to reduce CO 2 emissions gives impetus to our vision for the UK to lead in the manufacture and use of low carbon cars.

beyond the benefits of exceptional efficiency and low CO 2 emissions that are in Hybrid Synergy Drive, the new HSD will deliver everyday driving comfort and remarkable for a smooth and sophisticated driving that is unlike anything in the C-segment.

Auris HSD will be in two levels: 89g/km and 92g/km, offer the lowest CO 2 emissions and fuel economy in their HSD will thus play a role in further reducing European whole-fleet average CO 2 These have already by 14g/km between 2008 and to 132g/km, thanks to the introduction of Optimal Drive technology.

Exterior design

Auris HSD the new exterior styling introduced the Auris 2010 model including a completely redesigned It also displays a number of features which help the car’s aerodynamic efficiency and the presence of Toyota’s Hybrid Drive powertrain.

The opening in the front grille has been to promote a smooth flow of air the upper half of the body, and the grille has been made to reduce airflow resistance and engine cooling efficiency.

a revised foglamp configuration, the vertical surface of the corners of the bumper corrects the airflow as it over the front wheels, minimise turbulence in the wheelarches.

improvement in aerodynamic efficiency is by a ride height reduced by purpose-designed alloy wheels integrated aerodynamic caps; low resistance tyres; and a large, rear spoiler. Working to smooth and control the flow of air the car, these HSD-specific modifications reduce the coefficient of from Cd0.290 to 0.283, to reductions in fuel consumption and CO 2

Interior design

The interior a number of modifications, including a instrument binnacle in which the has been replaced by an Eco Drive Monitor. The centre-dial information includes additional HSD-specific such as Energy Flow and Eco Result monitors.

A hybrid smart start button has added to the side of the instrument and the centre console incorporates for the Parking Control and EV, ECO and Power modes, and a shift-by-wire gear

The illumination is changed to display numbers on a hybrid blue on the meter panel, audio and controls, and the Smart Start, Mode and Parking Control

A choice of upholsteries specific to the will also be available: a fabric or Alcantara panels leather surrounds.

Hybrid Drive

Auris HSD is a full capable of operating in petrol and modes alone, or a combination of Its Hybrid Synergy Drive delivers the energy-saving qualities of a hybrid, combined with the benefits of a parallel hybrid.

The technology delivers impressive, acceleration and remarkably quiet with class-leading fuel and CO 2 emissions from 74.3mpg and

Toyota’s latest generation Synergy Driver uses a VVT-i petrol engine, a electro motor, generator, performance battery and a power unit. A power split with a planetary gear combines and reallocated power the engine, electric motor and according to the car’s operational

The key to the successful installation of the system in front-engine platform is the fact the motor, generator and power device are housed in a single casing that is the size of a gearbox. The seamless E-CVT continuously variable transmission is by shift-by-wire technology via an electric lever.

The lightweight and compact 1,798cc Atkinson Cycle engine develops 97bhp at and 142Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. The performance permanent magnet 60kW electric motor a maximum 207Nm between and 13,000rpm.

Powered by the hybrid the electric motor works in with the petrol engine to acceleration in normal driving. the car is operating in EV (electric vehicle) it alone powers the driven

During deceleration and under the electric motor acts as a generator to effect regenerative recovering kinetic energy would normally be wasted as for storage as electrical energy in the

In combination, the petrol engine and motor generated a maximum power output of 134bhp, performance to match a conventional petrol or diesel hatchback. Auris HSD lower CO 2 emissions and lower NOx emissions than cars of comparable performance.

when operating in its switchable EV it cuts CO 2 and NOx emissions to zero, for up to 1.3 miles (2km) at speeds up to (50kph), depending on the level of charge and driving conditions.

HSD eco driving experience

Auris HSD has driving modes, including that can be selected ”on-demand” by the to maximise the HSD powertrain’s capabilities and comprehensive eco driving support for who want to adopt a more efficient style of driving.

EV mode allows for ultra-quiet on electric motor power giving zero fuel and emissions. ECO mode maximises and fuel economy, and Power boosts system performance. In an Eco Drive Monitor helps maximise the HSD system’s efficiency.

The can monitor the flow of energy the HSD system in each mode, via the display in the instrument panel, helps promote an easy, driving technique. There is a clear and simple power gauge that shows how power is being used or at any given time.

Taking of the inherent quietness of Hybrid Drive, Toyota has paid attention to NVH reduction measures to a calm and quiet cabin at all speeds. Road and engine have been rigorously with extensive use of sound-proofing Full-thickness glazing and a multi-layer windscreen further reduce for quieter performance at cruising

Auris HSD in the UK

Auris HSD is scheduled to go on in the UK in July. Further details of technical specifications, model and equipment features will be nearer the launch date.
