New Toyota Auris debuts at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Toyota is to stop selling diesel-powered passenger cars in the UK and Europe by the end of the year and focus on petrol-electric hybrid offering such as its popular Prius model

In contrast to Volkswagen's upbeat prognosis for a rebound, Toyota is getting rid of diesel versions of its cars this year, offering only two hybrids and one turbocharged gasoline engine in its redesigned Auris model.

Last year, nearly 15% of the brand's cars sold in Europe were diesel-powered, while in 2012 their share was 30%.

Following up on yesterday's leak, the 2019 Toyota Corolla has now made its official debut at the Geneva motor show in Switzerland.

Product plans beyond 2018 are unconfirmed, a spokesperson said, but the plans will involve phasing out the Avensis, Verso and diesel RAV4 - in the case of the latter, HEV sales outsell the petrol/diesel models two to one. Diesel and petrol has played such a big part in the Irish motoring psyche that it is going to take some time for us to evolve towards hybrid and electric.

Jaguar I-Pace revealed: $119000 EV here in October
The I-Pace boasts the same vision of a future we've seen in countless Hollywood films and is a near flawless representation of it. Jaguar has fully unveiled the I-Pace, its new all-electric executive vehicle that's set to do battle with market leader Tesla .

For this reason, Toyota has chose to offer its core models with a choice of two hybrid powertrains; one providing the traditional benefits of fuel efficiency and a relaxing drive, the second building on these strengths with greater power and more dynamic driving characteristics. The models account for less than 10 percent of its sales in the region. They are a 1.8-liter engine paired with a motor to produce 122 horsepower and a new 2.0-liter inline-4 hybrid engine good for 180 hp. Toyota hasn't issued any details on the output or performance of the regular petrol, a 1.2-litre turbo, but we'd expect it to have similar figures to the version that's in the C-HR (and the current Auris); so around 114bhp.

On the eve of show Toyota had announced it was ending production of diesel passenger cars for Europe. In our latest new model, the Toyota C-HR, HEVs accounted for 78% of sales a year ago. "In commercial vehicles, where personal and business needs (for example, torque and payload) remain, we will continue to offer the latest technology diesels".

Meanwhile, as awareness grows about diesel engines spewing out nitrogen oxide and harmful particulates, diesel sales in Europe are plummeting. The diesel option that's offered in Europe appears to be done for.
