Toyota Levin Hybrid (2015 Auto Shanghai)

2015 Shanghai Motor Show: Toyota establishes new hybrid version for its Levin sedan

On April 20, Toyota Motor Corporation unveiled its Levin Hybrid at the 2015 Auto Shanghai in China.

The Levin debuted last April at the 2014 Beijing International Automobile Exhibition. Well-known as the Toyota 86 in Japan, the name Levin was selected for their all-new sedan and is the sibling model to the Corolla sedan in China.

Toyota has launched the hybrid version of this Levin at this year’s Auto Shanghai exhibition. It features a hybrid unit that was locally produced in China.

Moreover, Toyota has enhanced the attractiveness of hybrid cars by offering its Dual Engine, which combines an engine and motor under its hood.

In China, Toyota has joint ventures with FAW (FAW Toyota) and GAC (GAC Toyota). The Levin Hybrid is scheduled to be released to the Chinese market by GAC Toyota.
