The Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota has exposed the new pictures and details of the Yaris Hybrid-R concept car, which will make its first appearance at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show on 10th of September. This car shows how typical hybrid technology can maximize driving pleasure and performance. The concept is based on the standard 3 door Yaris, which is equipped with a 1.6 liter Global Race Engine (GRE) that was designed and completely developed by Toyota. This 1.6 liter block is coupled with not one but two electric motors that give the Yaris something called intelligent all-wheel drive capability.

Also the energy recovered under braking is accumulated in a super capacitor, which is a unit that is particularly used in race cars, thanks to its quick charge and discharge speeds and high power density. This technology was inspired by the TS030, which is a hybrid race automobile developed by Toyota. The 1.6 liter petrol has the maximum output of 300 BHP that transmits the power to the front wheels, not just that, each rear wheel is powered by an electric motor of 60 BHP that directly gives out the power to the wheel, which makes the car an all wheel drive.

Two 60 BHP and one 300 BHP engine means that the overall power generated by the block is a blistering 420 BHP, and this powerful block is wedded to a 6 speed sequential transmission. This transmission provides the driver with 2 options ‘road’ and ‘track’ driving modes. There is also something called a ‘boost’ mode which can be used to release the energy stored in the capacitor, up to 39.5 BHP for a total of 10 seconds and a 118.3 BHP for 5 seconds when the ‘track’ mode is set. The only drawback of the car was the body used, people expected something sportier than a Yaris.
