Carsales are running the story that Toyota unveiled the Yaris Hybrid-R at the Frankfurt motor show today.

It's northing short of a 313kW (~419hp) super hybrid hatch concept.

Powered by a 224kW (300hp) 1.6L turbo and electric motors for either rear wheel can provide an extra 45kw each for a short period of time.


I really love the idea of the third electric motor mounted between the engine and gear box that converts excess torque to the rear electric motors to counter any torque steer.
