A Toyota Yaris You d Actually to Drive

The Toyota Yaris is a fine car. It s an appliance, and simple, designed for shlepping and toiling away a commute. It s not exciting, but that s nothing 420 couldn t fix.

Born the bored minds of Toyota GmbH (TMG), the Toyota Hybrid R concept is proof given enough time, and caffeine, even the most machines can turn into special.


Special, in this case, making a puny 1.6-liter cylinder engine churn out 300 HP to a massive turbocharger, beefed up and direct injection. That grunt is pushed to the front through a six-speed sequential which has a 60 HP electric motor between it and the engine hence the moniker. But Toyota s engineers t stop there.

Each rear wheel has 60 HP motor, making the Yaris with power supplied not a nickel metal hydride like other hybrids but a capacitor similar to the one used on s Le Mans racing TS030 car.

The system works this: Stomp on the throttle and all 420 come galloping out of the gates, the electric motor mounted in the acting as a form of traction dolling out power to the rear as your right foot When you brake, that motor acts as a generator to energy back into the capacitor. The advantage of the super is that it can discharge energy boosting performance, while it more efficiently between of the gas.

The downside is that extra 120 HP fed to the rear wheels only in five second bursts in mode.

And Toyota is actually serious putting it on the track. The automaker up with Polyphony Digital the behind the Gran Turismo franchise to develop an Engine Unit (ECU) that can be into using a smartphone to lap times, GPS data, steering gear changes, speed, and All of that data can be fed back the game, so you can compare your life track antics your virtual hot laps.

And while the Yaris Hybrid R t have a snowball s chance at you can get the CAN-Gateway ECU system on the automaker s GT86 coupe (Scion in the States).
