Toyota Unveil All-New C-HR
Toyota Ireland has launched a brand-new C-HR. With cutting-edge technologies and a variety of electrified hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains with increased power, greater driveability, and extended all-electric driving capabilities, the new CH-R, which is scheduled to go on sale in Ireland next year, represents a new avant-garde design direction for Toyota and elevates the standout quality and status of its predecessor.
The original Toyota C-HR broke the mould for SUV design with its coupe-like lines, which are depicted even more strongly in the new model with its "super-coupe" profile, a new face resembling the all-electric bZ4X and Prius PHEV, and pronounced diamond-cut lines along the side of the car.
Numerous steps have been taken to lower carbon emissions and utilize recycled materials more effectively, promoting sustainability and the circular economy. In comparison to its predecessor, the Toyota C-HR has twice as much recycled plastic, including seat upholstery made from PET bottles.
A novel resin substance is used to create bumpers, which is anticipated to save hundreds of tonnes of CO2. A new automated procedure utilizing water-based paints has allowed for more cost savings, and a new vegan leather substitute for the steering wheel cover has been developed.
The car's weight has also been reduced through design and technological initiatives, such as a new panoramic roof with low-emissive and infrared-reducing coverings that retain heat inside during the winter and avoid overheating during hot weather. As a result, the unit weighs 5 kg less, the headroom increases by 3 cm, and less air conditioning is required.
Four electrified powertrain options will be available for the 2019 Toyota C-HR, showing Toyota Ireland's progress toward carbon neutrality. In order to provide customers with access to reasonably priced and useful vehicles that can quicken the rate of CO2 reduction and assist ensure a successful transition to zero emission transportation, Toyota Ireland thinks a variety of solutions must be provided.
The range includes 2.0-liter plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) and 2.0-liter hybrid electric (HEV) models. A class-leading balance of greater power and low emissions is provided by all new Toyota C-HR models thanks to the newest, fifth generation Toyota technology. A new transaxle, power control unit (PCU), and more potent high-voltage battery are just a few of the important hybrid system components that have been redesigned to be smaller and lighter.
Two exclusive Premiere Edition variants of the new Toyota C-HR will be released, displaying the best features and aesthetics. In addition to GR badging, "Liquid Black" ornamentation on the centre console, a G-mesh pattern for the grille, new-design 20-inch alloy wheels, and sports front seats with the GR emblem engraved on the headrests, the GR SPORT Premiere Edition will feature GR stylistic accents. Precious Silver serves as the colour for it. A JBL premium audio system and a head-up display are included in the equipment standard.
The exterior of the High Premiere Edition is a distinctive Sulphur bi-tone. A head-up display, perforated leather seats with contrast Sulphur stitching, and a panoramic roof are all included in the interior.
The new Toyota C-HR has the capabilities to continue its place as an iconic model, luring new customers and bolstering the Toyota brand in Ireland thanks to its concept car-like design, seamless digital user experience, completely electrified engine range, and nimble driving dynamics.
