2013 Toyota Hybrid-R Concept : Concept Cars

The Toyota Prius may not be a race-ready supercar, but that doesnt mean Toyota has stopped trying.

Toyota, with its firmly established reputation as a pioneer in the hybrid field, is getting ready to unveil a brand new concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The Hybrid-R will boast a motor with no less than 400 hp, based on the same technology used in the Toyota TS030, which competed in the latest Le Mans 24 Hours race.

The Japanese manufacturer reports that its new concept car is based on a hybrid system, pairing a high-powered fuel engine with several electric motors and achieving a total horsepower of over 400.

The Hybrid-R concept car is based on a technology similar to that of the Toyota TS030, which was driven in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). This time, however, the technology has been upgraded with a dual mode control ensuring optimal effectiveness for driving on the road and at the racetrack.

Toyota sold 1.2 million hybrid vehicles worldwide in 2012, in large part thanks to the international success of its Prius range.
