COROLLA HYBRID 2021 TOYOTA COROLLA HYBRID Base Price: $23,600 Wheelbase: 106.3 in. Length: 182.3 in. Width: 70.1 in. Height: 56.5 in. Powertrain 1.8-liter four cylinder and electric motors (combined 121 hp, 105 ft-lbs) Transmission: Continuously variable EPA Mileage: 53 city, 52 highway 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 is achieved by using both electric motors (MG1 vehicle for short distances, depending upon certain conditions, such as battery charge level. and MG2) for hybrid battery charging. This mode is useful for operating the vehicle Driving in parking lots or indoor parking garages, for The Corolla Hybrid’s linear acceleration example.
