Motorists and car insurance policy holders interested in finding out how Toyota is transferring racing car technology to its production line can now study the Hybrid-R concept released at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. The Hybrid-R is based on the Toyota Yaris, the company’s bestselling model in the European market. The concept incorporates technology found in the Toyota TS030 Le Mans Racer with a 300bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The Hybrid-R comes with two 60-hp electric motors that distribute power between the car’s rear wheels. This acts in a similar way to a traction control system. The electric motors also act as a power source for the super-capacitor, another piece of technology brought over from the TS030 Le Mans racing car.
