Default 2010 Toyota (UK) Auris HSD full Hybrid


The UK Toyota's Matrix-Yaris-like 5 door Hatchback hybrid borrows
the Toyota Prius's drivetrain, powerplant, electric motor, and battery
system.
It cost 18950 pounds. It accelerates rather slowly from 0-62 mph in
a leisurely 11.4 seconds but it also returns 61.9 mpg (US gallons)
and avoids's London's smog/emissions taxes.

Toyota's Auris hybrid is a riot of mixed messages.

While Prius performance is leisurely by contemporary standards, it beats
the best when I was a kid (12 flat to 60 was considered very good), and
except for the entry to a freeway, I have never needed to floor it,
anyway. In fact, I find that I always wonder why the people in front of
me are dawdling so. Iow, Prius performance is perfectly adequate. I am
sure that the Yaris hybrid in the UK is the same.
