Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited Key Developments

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited Launches New Model of the Corolla, the Corolla Hybrid

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited announced that it has launched a new model of the Corolla, the Corolla hybrid. Apart from Prius, Corolla hybrid offers the best fuel economy in its class with official consumption of just 4.1 litres/100km, providing a theoretical driving range of almost 1,100 km - and even further around town. The new Corolla hybrid is equipped with driver focused features not offered on any other Corolla in Australia, starting with the handling, stability and comfort advantages of double-wishbone rear suspension. It is the only Corolla fitted with electronically controlled brakes, larger 296mm x 28mm ventilated front discs, three selectable drive modes and a hybrid display in the instrument cluster. Available in a single highly specified grade, Corolla hybrid picks up premium features from the range-topping ZR - dual-zone automatic air-conditioning, auto-levelling bi-LED headlamps, LED daytime running lamps and keyless smart entry and ignition. Satellite navigation, SUNA live traffic updates, Toyota Link connected mobility and a colour 4.2-inch thin-film transistor multi-information display - all standard features on Corolla SX and ZR - are included in the hybrid offering. Reflecting its comprehensive equipment list, the Corolla hybrid with standard automatic transmission is keenly priced from $26,990 - placing it between the petrol-only SX and ZR hatches. It is the fifth hybrid car in Toyota's local line-up, joining Camry, Prius, Prius c and Prius v and arrives just four months shy of the 50th anniversary of the launch of the first Corolla in Japan in October 1966. The Corolla's Hybrid Synergy Drive system delivers combined output of 100kW from its Euro 5 certified Atkinson Cycle 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and 60kW electric motor. Efficiency features for the petrol engine include cooled exhaust-gas recirculation, an electric water pump and a compression ratio of 13.0:1. Official fuel consumption of 4.1 litres/100km compares with 6.1 litres/100km for automatic Corolla petrol hatches. This expands the theoretical maximum driving range by almost 280km to 1,097km, even with the fuel tank slimmed from 50 to 45 litres. Around town, the official fuel economy at 3.9 litres/100km is more than twice as good as that achieved by the already efficient automatic petrol-only variants at 8.0 litres/100km, boosting the driving potential on a single tank to more than 1,150 km. Carbon dioxide emissions are lower by similar margins, falling to just 96 grams/km (combined), 95 grams/km (highway) and 91 grams/km (urban). Company's Hybrid Synergy Drive technology is capable of operating in petrol and electric modes alone, or a combination of both, depending on driving conditions. The newest addition to the Corolla range retains the standard hatch's 360 litres of luggage space with the hybrid battery placed under the rear seat. Other standard features include seven airbags, reversing camera, stability and traction control, anti-skid brakes, 16-inch alloy wheels, black fabric upholstery and any of the eight exterior paint colours available across the Corolla range.

Toyota Australia Appoints Matt Callachor as New Vice-President, Effective June 1, 2016

Toyota Australia has named Matt Callachor as its new vice-president. Callachor will take over the new role from June 1, 2016 and will oversee the company's non-manufacturing operating arms such as sales and marketing, product planning and development, corporate services and finance. He will directly report to Toyota Australia president Dave Buttner, while four directors responsible for the company's non-manufacturing operating arms will report to him. Callachor will be based at the company's headquarters in Port Melbourne, Victoria. With 35 years of experience in Toyota, Callachor was executive director of sales and marketing in the company until 2013. Since then he has been working with Lexus International as general manager in planning in Japan as part of an intra-company transfer. This restructure will allow chairman Max Yasuda and president Dave Buttner to focus on strategic matters and long-term planning as Toyota Australia shuts down its local manufacturing by the end of next year and becomes a national sales and distribution company.

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited Unveils Updated Version of the Toyota 86

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia Limited has announced that it will unveil an updated version of the Toyota 86. Featuring revised exterior and interior design, as well as suspension and powertrain upgrades, the MY17 86 is scheduled to go on sale in Australia in the fourth quarter of this year. Re-configured LED headlamps incorporate new indicators, sitting above redesigned fog lamp bezels and a revised bumper. At the rear, there are sports LED tail lamps and a new bumper. The alloy wheel design has been refreshed, and the 86 logo has shifted to a stand-alone badge on the front fender, as well as inside the front headlamps. On the inside, the high-grade GTS features a new, soft-feel 'Grandlux' material (reprising the 86 logo) on the instrument panel surround and door trims. GTS drivers will also enjoy new seating material with silver stitching, as well as a steering wheel with integrated audio controls. Under the skin, a revised suspension tune focuses on shock absorber and spring rates, while on manual variants additional performance comes from a gear ratio change as well as increases to torque (+9Nm) and peak power (+4kW), with Hill Start Assist Control (HAC)# helping prevent the car from rolling back on steep hills. Toyota executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said since launching here in mid-2012, the front-engine, rear-wheel drive 86 has captured the imagination of local car enthusiasts.
