On the way to WRC success
With the Yaris III, Toyota won the WRC manufacturers', drivers' and co-drivers' titles in 2021, as well as the drivers' titles in 2018, 2019 and 2020. With this new model, called GR Yaris Rally1, the Japanese group intends to continue its fantastic success in rallying. To do this, Toyota has taken the 1.6-liter turbo engine from its predecessor and combined it with a 3.9-kWh battery and an electric motor-generator unit to provide drivers with over 500 hp. Power is provided by 100% sustainable fuel, which is a first for an FIA world championship. Several cars are being deployed this season, with drivers such as Sébastien Ogier and Elfyn Evans.
