Article by Christian A., on August 13, 2013

As you may know already, Toyota will bring the Hybrid-R Concept in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). What we didn’t know is that the new concept is actually based on a current Toyota production model that uses a powertrain with similar technology to that used by Toyota Racing’s TS030 Hybrid race car in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

According to the official press release, the Hybrid-R Concept combines a high-power internal combustion engine with electric motors. As a result, it develops a maximum power output of more than 400bhp (298kW).

Due to the fact that it is using the technology from a race car, the Hybrid-R Concept has a dual mode control that allows it to be used on the road or on the racetrack. Unfortunately, these are the only details available but stay tuned as Toyota might release new details ahead of the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
