New Toyota Hybrid-R Technical Specifications

The Hybrid-R will boast a motor with no less than 400hp, 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.
