TOYOTA YARIS No Prius. And Now No Diesel

If you want a diesel option for your Yaris...well...forget it dieself fuel in NJ is going for 3.69 a gallon and gas can be had for 2.99. So the diesel option doesnt save you any money just like a prius doesnt save you any money (over a Yaris) That 70 cent premium for diesel in effect cancels any mileage benefit. That along with the added cost of buying the diesel option makes it cost MORE (far more)

Ive heard the 1 liter engine doesnt get all that much more than the 1.5 liter. But every bit helps My Yaris got 42-44 mpg on vacation this summer at 60 mph. Automatic too.

TOYOTA YARIS Diesel Yaris coming to US

Anyone have any idea whether toyota will offer the Yaris D-4D in the US in the future The fuel economy specifications translate to about 55 mpg (US gallons) which beats the prius on the highway. The new diesel regulations and wanting to keep the prius as the most fuel efficient US model that toyota offers probably mean that it will not be coming. A Yaris with a diesel engine capable of using biodiesel

No the reason it wont come here is because theyd have to train every toyota mechanic in the US how to work on diesel engines. Additionally the US still doesnt have low-sulphur fuel although its supposed to happen soon. But I doubt theyll go diesel - its too much of a marketing hassle in the US where diesel has a bad image. Theyll introduce flex fuel vehicles before they would go diesel. And the comments

that it takes somewhere around 10 hours to fully charge it (a guy converted a prius to Lithium Ion betteries and added a plug to charge it at night). If it cost 12 cents per KWHR you are spending 1.20 a night to go from 60mpg to 100 mpg worth it and thats for a full charge too. I believe he could go as far as 30 miles wo having the car start gas engine for extra power. Another reason why toyota

Fun facts It takes about 130000000 BTU of energy to create process ship and install the battery pack used in the prius. A gallon of 93-octane gasoline contains approx. 120000 BTU of chemical potential energy. Divide 130000000 by 120000 to get 1083 gallons of fuel (or the energy equivalent thereof). That 1083 gallons at 50 mpg equates to 54150 miles worth of emissions due to driving. Figure that the

TOYOTA TACOMA Diesel Tacoma

Hey when is toyota going to start selling a diesel Tacoma in North America

diesels are more green by far then currant hybrid technology. The VW clean TDi took the highest honors for green technology NOT a toyota prius. Think 60mpg and still enough power to haul ass Not only that but you can recycle most parts of a diesel engine hybrid drives have weird high-tech parts and expensive non recyclable batteries. I would think we would be more likely to see a diesel toyota in Canada

TOYOTA YARIS Read This Before Buying a HybridDieselElectric

httpwww.nytimes.com20120405bu...1&pagewanted2 The payoff happens NOW when you buy a Yaris 10000 less than a hybrid.

I am going for toyota prius mainly due to its design features safety and above all its marketing strategies having 1 tone of CO2 less than an equivalent family vehicle with a diesel engine.

TOYOTA PRIUS II NHW20 2007 toyota Prius...

Hi everyone I just wanted to know if you have seen the new hybrid sedan that has come out in japan.. I think it might be the prius.. httptoyota.jpbelta

I believe that toyota Yairs would sell well here. it is true that the yaris is not a hybrid but it still gets 34 city and 40 highway. would cost arourd 13 to 14k. toyota offers a diesel engine for the yaris in Europe. hopfully they would bring the diesel yaris to the United States. Still even without a hybrid or diesel offering this car is great on gas. Lets all take mpg into account when buying a car whatever or not we buy a hybrid or diesel car.

TOYOTA YARIS Cruze To Get Turbo Diesel

Chevy is announceing that the Cruse will get a turbo diesel option next year and that it will get 50 mpg. But dont get excited diesels are like hybrids. The increased mpg does NOT offset the added pricetag. Or even come close. Basically diesels and hybrids take the money you would have given to Exxon and give it to whoever made the car. And then some. So toyota USA can still win by offering a car that weights 1800 pounds has a 1 liter GAS engine and costs less than say 13000.

sell like hotcakes imo because there are many people like me that would love a diesel small car but know from bitter experience the horrible repair records crooked dealers and inflated price of the VW diesels which are the only game in town right now. our relatives in Holland have a yaris diesel- quite a fuel miser since they pay the equivilant of 9gallon there that kind of fuel savings with toyota

TOYOTA YARIS D4D Diesel for USA

With the arrival of clean diesel engines in VWs and Audis here in the US has anyone heard anything about toyota bringing their line of D4D clean diesels too

its open to question whether these results are realistic in terms of everyday driving. Since the engine isnt sold in the US I wonder are there any official type numbers around like EPA estimates I dont really think it matters much. Even if a lead foot only gets 60mpg its still better and cheaper than a gas hybrid. Take the overall efficiency of the gas Yairs out of the picture it would be a prius

Quote Originally Posted by Zaphod I dont really think it matters much. Even if a lead foot only gets 60mpg its still better and cheaper than a gas hybrid.

And the new euro spec clean diesels run quietly dont smoke and have enough pep for anyone looking for economical transportation.

TOYOTA PRIUS the real Prius gas mileage

Most reviewers keep listing prius mileage as 60 town 51 highway. Ive been driving 40 mpg cars for 20 years and am very careful how I drive to maximize mileage. I have driven my 2005 prius for 15000 miles. Heres what they actually do. Town--36 Highway--48 My 15000 mile averate is 46.5 There is of course the possibilty that the 2005 prius has been changed and doesnt match the mileage of

I actually get slightly better numbers with our Jetta TDI diesel wagon. I get spot-on the Canadian government official fuel economy numbers which are 38 mpg city 51 mpg highway. To get numbers like you do with your prius I would have to be speeding. My average fuel consumption is actually pretty close to your prius highway mileage but my typical drive is heavily biased towards freeway driving. I get

TOYOTA PRIUS When my Dodge Ram hits your Prius

Heh sorry about the inflammatory title but Ive got a case of prius fever and need some advice. I have a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD 5.7L V8 extended cab and am enjoying an average of 14.5mpg.

I can only speak on my own experience when I say my 2003 VW Golf TDI has been very little trouble so far. Though I bought it used so I didnt have to deal with any of the initial bugs most new cars work through... Ive heard most of VWs

VW and Mercedes have a terrible reputation for reliability. I hope that they do improve this track record before Honda introduces their clean diesels into the North American market. Until then the current generation diesels will remain illegal in many states and generally off-limits to the North American public (which is a shame).

VOLKSWAGEN JETTA V Hesitating between a TDI Wagon and a Toyota Prius V

Good day all. 2 days ago I test drove a prius V and Im very psyched about it. I really like all the gadgets. However after reading a bit on the net there are still some concerns that are making me lean towards the VW TDI Wagon. Some say the toyota is very loud when at high RPMs (when loaded or passing on the highway). How are the Volks diesel engines in these conditions We go camping a lot so well

TOYOTA PRIUS LEATHER IN AN OTHERWISE ECO CAR IS NOT ECO LET CAR MAKERS KNOW

A toyota Hybrid is great way to express caring to our Earth. However the higher models only come in LEATHER. LEATHER IS NOT ECO IS TOXIC UNCOMFORTABLE CRUEL Put pressure on toyota to offer NON-LEATHER Prii LEATHER IS EXTREMELY NOT ECO. Takes tremendous amounts of water fuel food land energy waste and pollution to grow cows for food and leather. Believe it or not Eco-wise you are actually better off

Thanks for posting this. I have never understood the disparity evidenced by toyota in including leather seating in their prius model line. This inconsistency has been extended to their badge-engineered Lexus Hybrid (HS) which although claims to have plant-based seating internals is clad in leather. Volkswagen has a much better alternative in their turbo diesel-engine equipped vehicles. While being

TOYOTA YARIS Prius Pistons

Anyone try putting prius pistons in the 1NZ-FE yet Arent these supposed to be really high compression when put into our motors

The prius intake cam holds the valve open longer while the piston goes up on the compression stroke pushing air back into the intake manifold. Its effective displacement and compression ratio are both reduced this way but on the power stroke the exhaust valve stays closed while the expanding gas pushes the piston down nearly to the bottom of the stroke. The gas expands through a higher ratio than its

TOYOTA YARIS Yaris vs Prius

Have any of you owned a prius Since I am leasing my Yaris I was thinking about trying a prius as my next car. The insurance is actually about 60.00 cheaper for the prius. The only thing I was told is that the prius battery is extremely expensive.

TOYOTA YARIS Buying a Yaris is more economical in long run vs.PriusInsight

well we all know that we need to calculate the offset for hybrid vehicles which includes how many years a person has to drive the hybridusing gas to actually negate the extra price paid for the hybrid. but also we have to match car specifications as in terms of each vehicles size comparison and luxuryetc. Is it true the Honda Insighttoyota prius are the same as an yariscorolla as in terms of ride quality

TOYOTA PRIUS City driving

I love my 2004 prius which I got at Beltway toyota in Maryland. But in driving through the streets of D.C. when Im often stopping at just about every block or two I find Im getting about 35 mpg. My mileage goes up when part of my trip includes a bit of freeway driving so I suspect the mileage killer is the continual stop-and-go. Am I right Are there stop-and-go drivers who are doing better than 40

Martin I thought the philosophy behind the Honda system was that you can use a small gas engine with relatively good highway fuel economy and agument it with an electric motor when additional power is needed (acceleration passing etc.) It also permits the engine to shut off completely at a stop until power is needed to start up again. Just as gas engine only vehicles get lower fuel economy numbers

people wont so rapidly jump to hybrids as they will explore alternative fuel saving methods - diesel small engined vehicles such as Yaris and Smart cars - as these offer simpler and more efficient than the regular gasoline engine vehicles of the previous decades. Your middle of the road prius is at least 3-4000 overpriced in my opinion - they are complex and have a LOT can go wrong - although toyota
