The Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer Toyota recently came up with an innovation in the world of cars, where the brand unveiled its first-ever or better say pilot project segment named Toyota Corolla Altis Hybrid. Well, heading ahead you will get to know about the specifications of this car and also why it is in trend as everyone is talking about it. Although, the Toyota Corolla Altis Hybrid is already on sale in Brazil where the main fuel on which it is going to run is being used.
Mr. Gadkari illuminates the importance and the future of this technology saying India is totally dependent on natural fuel such as petrol. Hence, he opened up about the importance of using alternative fuel vehicles and also told that it will reduce the pollution level in the country. Well, if we talk about some of the major highlights of it then here we go.
- It will reduce the pollution level.
- Good for farmers as it is made of sugarcane.
- Will run on regular petrol and pure ethanol.

However, Toyota has launched its Corolla Altis Hybrid which is a Flexi Fuel Strong Hybrid electric vehicle, but the bookings and other things will open soon. As it is going to be a pilot project of Toyota in India therefore it will take some time and some other approvals. Recently, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari unveiled the first look of the car where he was seen driving.
