Toyota C-HR Hy-Power Concept Promises More Performance

Toyota C-HR Hy-Power Concept Promises More Performance”

The brand that popularised hybrid power has promised to make it fun.

Continuing the stream of Frankfurt debuts is the Toyota C-HR Hy-Power Concept, which previews a more powerful hybrid version of the B-segment crossover.

This vehicle's electrified drivetrain provides more power than the 122 PS available in today's C-HR Hybrid, though we have no idea what that actually means because Toyota hasn't told us, though more information should be released on this subject early next year.

Whether or not Australia will receive the existing C-HR hybrid and the planned high performance version remains to be seen, however Toyota's emphasis on a broader range of models with alternative drivetrains, including performance vehicles, suggests production hurdles will be overcome. Toyota hybrid vehicles now on sale in Australia include Camry, Corolla, and the Prius family.

Hybrid technology is also at the core of Toyota's flagship motorsport program, where prototype race cars tackle the World Endurance Championship including the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Japanese giant has made a decision to release zero details of the new powertrain whatsoever, but to give you a refresher course, the standard C-HR Hybrid utilises the Prius' 1.8 litre VVT-i Atkinson-cycle engine that develops 99 PS at 5,200 rpm and 142 Nm at 3,600 rpm.

The show auto has a striking look anchored by matte grey paint with red highlights.

The Toyota C-HR Hy-Power concept may look bold, with its 20-inch wheels, matte "Dark Carbon Silver" paint and contrasting accents in both gloss black and orange, but what really counts with this design study is underneath all that finery.
