Toyota to cease diesel vehicle sales in Europe

A year ago almost 15 percent of Toyota's sales in Europe were from diesel vehicles, down from 30 percent in 2012.

The new Toyota Auris has been launched at the Geneva Motor Show, with a new 2.0-litre petrol hybrid system and sportier styling.

The new 2.0-litre hybrid will offer drivers an "energised drive" according to Toyota, with more power and steering wheel-mounted shift paddles for a more dynamic, engaging experience.

Volkswagen pledged previous year to spend more than €34bn through 2022 to develop battery-powered and autonomous-driving technology, and it has plans to create electric versions of all 300 cars, trucks and buses sold by its dozen brands by the end of the next decade. Combined with the multi-link rear suspension, these changes are said to contribute to better handling and stability without compromising ride and comfort.

All new TNGA-based vehicles prioritise the highest active and passive safety standards. If anything, the hatchback is now lower and wider, with the optional two-tone color package offering more contrast in the design.

The new Auris is 40mm longer than the vehicle it replaces, and all of this gain is in the wheelbase, a move that should help to increase the amount of room in the cabin.

"We need diesel to get to the carbon dioxide goals", Herbert Diess, who heads VW's namesake mass-market brand, said after presenting the all-electric ID Vizzion concept vehicle that's capable of driving as far as 650km on a single charge. The brand's Gazoo Racing performance push, led by race programs in the WRC and WEC as well as the introduction of a new Supra, could result in a hot Corolla to rival Volkswagen's Golf GTI. An increase in rear windscreen rake of some 14 degrees and the muscular hip adopted above the rear wheel arch combine to make the overall appearance of the vehicle rear more compact, despite an increase in rear overhang of 20 mm. The front end with a lower bonnet is more daring than ever thanks to the all-LED headlights, large trapezoidal lower grille, and sculpted bumper. It's created to enhance the perception of width and a low centre of gravity.
