Toyota Launches New Passo Hatchback In Japan

Toyota Motor Corporation recently launched the partially redesigned “Passo” compact hatchback in Japan. The redesigned vehicle achieves fuel efficiency of 27.6 km/L, the best for registered gasoline vehicles in Japan.

The Passo’s fuel efficiency of 27.6 km/L represents an improvement of approximately 30 percent over the previous design and exceeds the fuel efficiency standards for 2015 set by the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) by 20 percent. Additionally, with CO2 emissions of 84 g/km, the Passo now achieves emissions levels 75 percent lower than the 2005 standards established under MLIT’s Approval System for Low-Emission Vehicles, making it eligible for full tax reductions under the Japanese government’s tax incentive program. Thanks to their improved fuel efficiency, the four-wheel drive models are also eligible for tax reductions.

The Passo uses a newly developed, more efficient 1.0-litre engine with a maximum thermal efficiency of 37 percent. This superior level of thermal efficiency was achieved by raising the engine’s compression ratio, optimizing valve timing, lowering friction, and using cooled exhaust gas recirculation and an integrated exhaust manifold and cylinder head. In addition to improved aerodynamic performance and an enhanced regeneration system, the 1.0-litre two-wheel drive models also feature the Toyota Stop & Start System, which cuts off the engine at approximately 9 kmph when slowing to a stop, as standard.
