Closing in on a year since the reveal of the Yaris HSD Concept at the Geneva Motor Show, Toyota has released the first production images of the gasoline-electric sub-compact.

Sporting the front-end of the FCV-R hydrogen fuel cell concept, the Yaris Hybrid is powered by the same Hybrid Synergy Drive engine-motor combination as found in the Prius c, with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine mated to an electric motor and battery pack, good to 98 hp and around 53 mpg combined.

A version of the Yaris Hybrid for North America is unlikely with the upcoming launch of the Prius c on our shores later this year.

Look for full Geneva Motor Show Coverage starting March 6th here.
