January arrival for new Toyota C-HR Hybrid Electric

Toyota Ireland has revealed that the first supply of the all-new C-HR Hybrid Electric will arrive in January 2024, with prices starting from €40,520.

The Japanese carmaker claims that the new-generation C-HR represents an evolution for Toyota in both innovation and design. It adds that the standout statement car combines a bold new style, sustainable features and with Toyota’s latest fifth generation technology which it boasts, delivers a class-leading balance of increased power and low emissions.

The exterior showcases precision-cut lines, a new bi-tone paint and design, and flush door handles, which Toyota describes as representing a new clean, sculptural style. It adds that the interior features on some grades (not all) include ambient lighting, a 12.3 inch Toyota Smart Connect multimedia package, and a new 12.3 inch fully digital combi-meter.

Toyota’s new C-HR has a range of sustainable features including seat fabric made from 100 per cent recycled plastic bottles, a vegan-material steering wheel, and new paint which uses water-based instead of oil-based paint.

The brand says that the panoramic glass roof, which is available on Sport+, Sol Premiere Edition and GR Sport Premier Edition, is also 5kg lighter which helps reduce CO2 emissions.

The Toyota C-HR features five hybrid electric models, the C-HR sport, C-HR Sport+, and C-HR Sol, with two special introductory models also available –  the ‘Premiere Edition’ and GR Sport ‘Premiere Edition’. These will be available in two powertrains: a 1.8 and 2.0-litre hybrid electric.

Toyota Ireland says that it is expecting demand for the new model to be high due to the “legacy and popularity” of the original Toyota C-HR in Ireland. It is encouraging those interested to contact their local dealerships early. Subject to terms and conditions a rate of €298 per month on Toyota Easy PCP Finance is being offered.

Zoë Bradley from Toyota Ireland said: “After an exciting reveal earlier this year, we’re excited to finally see the all-new Toyota C-HR Hybrid Electric arrive to Irish shores.

“The new Toyota C-HR is the ideal statement car for customers who are looking for a stylish car, with standout design and sustainable features, which doesn’t compromise on power.”
