Toyota and Lexus Hybrids to Shine at EcoVelocity

Toyota and Lexus will be showcasing their current and future low emissions full hybrid technologies at EcoVelocity, a festival of green cars that is taking place at the iconic Battersea Power Station in London in September.

Visitors will experience hybrid power first-hand while driving in the Toyota Prius – the world’s best-selling full-hybrid car – and the British-built Auris Hybrid hatchback. Emitting less than 100g/km of CO2, both models are right at home in central London, being exempt from the UK capital’s congestion charge.

While these models are already on sale, there will also be the chance for a close-up look at the next stage in Toyota’s hybrid vehicle strategy in the form of the Prius Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV).

Toyota will also be showing its all-new Yaris just one week after its official sales launch in the country and its diminutive iQ, two cars which offer plenty of style and economy, but in a more conventional package.

Lexus will also be taking part in EcoVelocity, showing that luxury and environmental efficiency can coexist.

Visitors will have the chance to drive the CT 200h, the world’s first full hybrid premium compact hatchback, which was launched earlier this year as the new entry model to the Lexus brand. Its Lexus Hybrid Drive system delivers sub 100g/km CO2 emissions and 68.9mpg combined cycle fuel consumption. At the same time it boasts all the comfort, quality and technical sophistication customers expect of a Lexus. Also on display will be the RX 450h full hybrid luxury crossover.
