Concept machine unveiled at Frankfurt show set to lead to high-performance production version of C-HR

The Toyota C-HR Hy-power concept has been unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show - a car that the firm says points the way to a new, performance-focused hybrid drivetrain set to be launched in the near future.

Toyota says the new powertrain will have "more power and performance" than the 120bhp system currently featured in the C-HR, but has given no specific details. The firm did note its leadership in hybrid sales, and the new concept reflects a belief that customer demand is now sufficient to offer a choice of hybrid powertrains and enhance the appeal of hybrid power by offering a higher-performance option.

“The concept shows both what a sportier C-HR could look like and introduces the idea of a more powerful hybrid powertrain that could be sold across our core models,” said a spokesman.

The C-HR concept features several styling enhancements to accentuate its sporty potential and a striking colour scheme. However, no details of engineering enhancements have been revealed.

In Western Europe, half of Toyota and Lexus sales are hybrids, with 80% of C-HR sales using the current powertrain. Globally, 40% of all Toyota and Lexus sales are hybrid. Worldwide sales of the Toyota Prius, launched 20 years ago, have now topped 11 million, with more than one million sales a year now being recorded.
