The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced the launch of the Corolla Hybrid on its local auto market, where the model is apparently eligible for a 100 percent tax waiver.

According to the car manufacturer, the Toyota Corolla Hybrid is available to its future customers in Japan in two body styles, the Corolla Axio (Sedan) and the Corolla Fielder (Estate), and prices for the first one have been set at 1,925 million YEN while for the second one at 2.09 million YEN. The two brand new “green” versions of the Toyota Corolla are said to be eligible for a 100 percent tax waiver on their local auto market.

Toyota says that the new Corolla Hybrid is powered, on both body styles, by the same 1.5 liter petrol engine, which is good for 74 PS, mated to a THS-II (Toyota Hybrid System) hybrid module, where the electric motor is providing an extra 61 PS. The battery is nickel-metal and it will help the Corolla Hybrid return 33 km/L. As for the goodies list, this will include the 4.2-inch screen on the instrument console, automatic headlights, collision warning system and much more. The hybrid version will not differentiate from the regular variant except for the new Light Blue Metallic exterior color.
