The best-selling nameplate in the world,
Corolla, got a hybrid powertrain for the first time
ever last year. The new hybrid system combines
a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with
two motor/generators through an electronically
controlled planetary-type continuously variable
transmission (CVT) transaxle. Combined system
output of 121 horsepower yields decidedly
responsive performance. Available in the LE
grade, Corolla gets a combined 52 miles-pergallon and comes standard with Toyota Safety
Sense 2.0.

Engineered for Efficiency
The hybrid powertrain and battery were a
natural fit for the Corolla because of the Toyota
New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform.
There’s no compromise in cabin roominess, for
example, when choosing the Corolla Hybrid
versus a gas model.

The hybrid system combines a 1.8-liter
four-cylinder gasoline engine with two motor/
generators through an electronically controlled
planetary-type continuously variable transmission
(CVT) transaxle. Combined system output of
121 horsepower yields decidedly responsive
performance.
The nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery
pack employs a newly developed technology
called Hyper-Prime Nickel to boost battery
performance in a smaller and lighter package.
The battery’s smaller size and flatter shape allow
it to be packaged under the rear seat, rather
than taking up trunk space, and also allowing a
60/40 split folding rear seatback to expand cargo
capacity. The battery location also contributes
to the vehicle’s lower center of gravity, a boon
to agility.

Corolla Hybrid has EV mode, which allows
the vehicle to be operated as a pure electric
