Toyota to exhibit new hybrid vehicle in Jilin

Toyota Motor Corp. will display its new hybrid concept car, Yundong Shuangqing, at the upcoming Changchun auto show from July 13-22 in northeast China's Jilin province.

The concept vehicle is equipped with a system of multiple power sources designed by Toyota's Chinese research and development centre in Changshu, Jiangsu province, sources with the company said Tuesday.

The vehicle is an outcome of Toyota's Cloud Action plan initiated on March 1 in Beijing to promote environmentally friendly products in China, Xinhua news agency reported.

According to the plan, a production version of Yundong Shuangqing, literally meaning Cloud Action Dual-Engine, will be available in 2015.

The vehicle made its debut at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition in April this year.

China became the first country outside Japan to produce Toyota's Prius hybrid when Sichuan FAW Toyota Motor Co. Ltd. started making the third-generation model in 2005.

In 2010, GAC Toyota Motor Co. Ltd. in south China's Guangdong province began creating the Camry hybrid, the second hybrid vehicle manufactured by Toyota in China.
