Toyota’s hybrid ethanol Corolla to hit the Brazilian market in Q4

April 17, 2019 |

In Brazil, Toyota confirmed the new Brazilian Corolla will be the first vehicle in the world equipped with flex hybrid propulsion. Studies involving Toyota’s hybrid flex technology were announced by the manufacturer in March last year, while production confirmation came in December of the same year. Driving a new cycle of technological evolution in Brazil, the announcement is in line with the purposes of the Rota 2030 Program, which seeks, among other things, to stimulate the production of more efficient vehicles.

The only vehicle to have an electric motor and another of flexfuel technology, the New Corolla, with this motorization, will be the most efficient ethanol-powered car in Brazil and the cleanest hybrid in the world.

The model will be mounted on the Toyota Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which already equips brand vehicles such as the Prius, the compact C-HR SUV and the large Camry sedan.

The new generation of Corolla is expected to arrive in Brazil in the last quarter of 2019. Toyota intends to sell its vehicles in the Latin American markets where the vehicle is exported – Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Peru and Colombia during the first half of 2020.
