- Toyota unveils fourth model in 191 Self-Charging Hybrid Invasion
- The world’s best-selling car is extending its family to include the Corolla Saloon, Hatchback and Touring Sport
Toyota today confirmed the arrival of the world’s first Corolla Hybrid which will hit Irish shores in February 2019, as the fourth model in the eagerly anticipated 2019 Toyota self-charging hybrid invasion.
Renowned as the world’s best-selling car, with more than 45 million vehicles sold worldwide since its introduction in 1966, the first-ever Corolla hybrid will be charged with a 1.8 hybrid powertrain and will carry a more modern and stylised aesthetic and will reflect the ‘fun-to-drive’ philosophy that’s integral to the TNGA system and the new game-changing hybrid generation.
Coming in as part of the new generation of self-charging hybrids arriving in early 2019, the Corolla is a unique offering in its segment; the combination of sleek styling, efficient and engaging hybrid driving dynamics makes for an outstanding package. A firm favourite with Irish drivers, and globally one of the most recognised model names, it’s expected that demand will be high.
It will also be available with a 1.6 petrol engine, but we predict that 90% of Saloon sales in 2019 will be hybrid.
