Johan van Zyl, President and CEO of Toyota Motor Europe commented: "Toyota has been pioneering Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) technology for more than 20 years".
In commercial vehicles, where personal and business needs (eg torque and payload) remain, Toyota will continue to offer the latest technology diesels, they have confirmed. The third-largest automotive company increased its sales in Europe a year ago by 14%, while the auto market as a whole grew by far more modest - 3.4%.
Since then, their HEV sales substantially exceed diesel sales.
Toyota will have no diesel passenger cars on sale in Europe by the end of this year, citing limited demand and widespread uptake of hybrid alternatives.
The new model is based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) as expected, shared with the Prius, C-HR, and the new Camry. Last week, for example, it was reported that automotive giant Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plans to eliminate diesel engines from all its passenger vehicles by 2022. Volkswagen chief Matthias Mueller is convinced that diesel will "experience a revival", but that may be optimistic - it has a bad rap in Europe, and EVs may kill it off even if there is a resurgence.
Toyota said the next generation Toyota Auris, to be built at the firm's Burnaston factory in the United Kingdom as part of a major £240million investment, would not include a diesel option, but would include two electric hybrids.
The current Auris powertrain line-up consists of five conventional engines and one hybrid powertrain.
The 2018 Geneva Motor Show marks the world debut of Toyota's third-generation Auris compact vehicle. Customers have a choice of a 122-hp 1.8-liter or a 180-hp 2.0-liter hybrid powertrains.
Similar to the decision taken in 2016, to introduce Toyota C-HR without a diesel version, the new generation Auris will only be offered with petrol and HEV powertrains. About 41 percent of cars sold through its European branch were hybrid models, while diesel represented "less than" 10 percent.
