Apr 23, 2019

On April 17, Toyota confirmed that the new Brazilian-made Corolla will be the first vehicle in the world equipped with flex hybrid propulsion.
Launch of the Corolla Hybrid is scheduled for the last quarter of 2019 at the Indaiatuba plant, which is undergoing a modernization process with investment of BRL 1 billion, announced in September 2018.
The model will be mounted on the Toyota Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which already equips the Prius, C-HR and Camry.
Studies involving Toyota's hybrid flex technology using the platform of a Prius model were announced in March 2018, while production confirmation came in December 2018.
The twelfth-generation Corolla will be the only vehicle to have an electric motor and another using flexfuel technology, making it the most efficient ethanol-powered car in Brazil and the cleanest hybrid in the world.
Toyota intends to export the new Corolla to Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Peru and Colombia in the first half of 2020.
