Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) knows exactly this need for sustainable mobility in the country. As such, the Japanese car brand is offering the Toyota Corolla Altis Hybrid to the local market. It is a compact sedan mounted with an electric motor that gives the vehicle its eco-friendly characteristics.

What’s special about the hybrid sedan’s electric motor is that it enhances both the vehicle’s performance capabilities and efficiency. Under the hood, this accompanies a 1.8-liter gasoline engine which can produce a total output of 97 hp and 142 Nm of torque. The powertrain is completed by a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to provide smoother drive comfort and better fuel economy.

The electric motor helps maximize fuel efficiency as it can charge itself when the vehicle is in motion, as well as during braking by recovering kinetic energy. With this, the electric motor can help the internal combustion engine power the vehicle, which can save fuel.


But the Toyota Corolla Altis Hybrid is not all go. The compact sedan is also designed to have a clean-cut and sleek appeal that looks radiant on the road. Inside, Toyota intended the vehicle to bear a sophisticated interior feel by providing a spacious cabin and premium touches such as soft-touch panels and leather seats.
