At the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, Toyota revealed its Yundong Shuangqing II concept, a hybrid sedan that could preview a possible Corolla hybrid of the near future.
Back at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, Toyota unveiled the Furia Concept, which previewed the future of the Corolla. Now, the brand has unveiled the Yundong Shuangqing II in China, which appears to be a slightly toned down Furia concept sporting a hybrid powertrain under the hood.
If this is indeed a redesigned Furia, Toyota could be considering a Corolla hybrid, which would directly compete with its Prius family. That may not be a major issue however, as the more traditional sedan styling would target a different consumer group. If it does happen, the Corolla hybrid would probably borrow its hybrid powertrain from the Prius c, which produces 99 hp.
