Toyota Yaris Hybrid-R Concept shows up again ahead of 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA)

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 19, 2013

Toyota teased its Hybrid-R Concept ahead of Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) and everyone believed that the car is actually a preview of the Supra successor jointly developed with Bmw. It appears that Toyota will bring high-performance version of the Yaris, dubbed Yaris Hybrid-R Concept.

Based on the three-door Yaris, the Hybrid-R Concept is powered by a 1.6-liter GRE (Global Race Engine) developed by Toyota Motorsport, combined with two powerful electric motors that give the car intelligent all-wheel drive capability.

The technology used by Toyota in the Yaris Hybrid-R Concept is like that featured in the TS030 Hybrid race car, where energy recovered under braking is stored in a super capacitor.

The super capacitor is used in a sports car thanks to its high power density and quick charge and discharge speeds. The Yaris Hybrid-R Concept develops a maximum power output of more than 400bhp (298kW). Moreover, it features a dual mode control that allows it to be used on the road or on the racetrack.
