Two companies planned to organise the European manufacture of the 1,6-litre diesel unit by 2012. But now the motorcar giant management has decided to refuse accent on diesel models for the European car markets in favour of hybrid power-plants. Concern Toyota intends to expand export of hybrid Prius, and also to equip with hybrid units other European models, in particular Toyota Auris.
