Toyota Bringing Plug-in Hybrids to China

Toyota Motor Corp. will be bringing plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to China to tap into generous incentives, a Toyota executive said. Toyota executive Hiroji Onishi said that the Japanese carmaker plans to launch plug-in hybrid versions of the Toyota Corolla and Levin in China in 2018. Onishi, head of Toyota’s China operations, spoke to reporters on the eve of the Beijing auto show.

These will include selling plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles in China. “Our decision to launch plug-in hybrid versions of the Corolla and the Levin reflects the depth of our resolve and commitment to the Chinese market,” Onishi said.
