    CO2 emissions from Toyota’s UK car lineup sold in country during 2017 reached a record low. Official figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show Toyota passenger cars falling to an average figure of 100g/km for the past year from more than 102,000 sales.

    The result demonstrates the impact of Toyota’s latest hybrid and plug-in hybrid model range and the high efficiency of its conventional, gasoline and diesel powertrains.

    It is the lowest level yet achieved by Toyota and well below the industry average of 121 g/km – a slight increase over 2016’s emission performance.

    In the past 10 years, Toyota’s passenger car tailpipe carbon emissions have fallen by almost 31 percent, a decade in which it has steadily introduced its hybrid technology to new market segments. At the same time, hybrid efficiency has improved, cutting emissions and improving real-world fuel economy.

    Mark Roden, Toyota GB Director of Operations:
    Toyota has now reached that level as an average for its entire model range, including its conventional gasoline and diesel engine offerings!!!

    Toyota hybrids accounted for almost 45 percent of the brands UK new car sales in 2017.

    I have the feeling the PU right in front of the Prius might be a little bit over that figure.
