Toyota has revealed its new Auris HSD will emit 89g/km of CO2 and have combined fuel economy of 74.3mpg. The production car has gone on display at the Geneva motor show for the first time.

The British-built hybrid hatchback will be seen in production form for the first time at tomorrow’s Geneva motor show, before it reaches British showrooms this summer.

See the Toyota Auris HSD concept pictures

It is powered by a 1.8-litre petrol engine and a 60kW (80bhp) electric motor powered mated to a 27kWh nickel metal hydride battery. Total power is 134bhp, and the car can run in electric-only mode at up to 30mph for 1.2 miles.

Toyota says the Auris HSD has the performance of a 2.0-litre diesel, despite having significantly lower NOx emissions. It meets Euro5 emissions standards, and is expected to also comply with forthcoming Euro6 requirements.

Toyota Auris 2007-2012

The Toyota Auris is a spacious, but unspectacular attempt at a high quality Golf rival. Only the availability of a hybrid lifts it from obscurity

Re: Auris hybrid emits 89g/km

I'm interested in what it'll cost. Is it going to be a cheaper entry point in to Hybrids or just a more recognisable alternative to a Prius?

I have a feeling that this might be the reason for the large disparity between official mpg and real world figures for hybrids!

From my own experience, the disparity is similar to that of a typical diesel car, and official figures are set in perfect conditions on a rolling road.

With correct driver training, all cars can acheive MPG closer to their cliamed figres.

Maybe Autocar should do an article about this using their own Prius, and ask the experts at Toyota to demonstrate the Prius in its best light (which is not driving slowly before everyone comments!!)

This is probably why the volt is claiming emissions of around 40g CO2 per Km. The assumption being electricity is carbon free.
