As mentioned, the Yaris Hybrid isn’t only offered to European buyers. The car was launched back in 2012 but the model we sampled was from the ’13 vintage. Toyota claims it’s the only B-Segment vehicle on sale in the Old World that’s offered with an electrified drivetrain, and we’d be inclined to agree; off the tops of our collective heads we can’t think of any other subcompact hybrids. Interestingly this little hatchback is manufactured in France of all places. We’re not sure whether to say oui or hei. Perhaps we should brush up on our Esperanto.
