Dubai, UAE, June 19, 2019:The world’s favourite family sedan with a record sale of over 47million units around the world is here not only in a brand new striking avatar but is alsoin a Hybrid Electric powertrain for the first time ever in the UAE.
Launched by Al-Futtaim Toyota,the all-new 2020 Toyota Corolla features a brand new dynamic exterior design, unprecedented performance and a fuel economy of 27.6km/L making it the consummate version of the iconic sedan.
Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Toyota, said, “The all-new 2020 Corolla is the most radical rethink of the iconic nameplate yet. Not only is it forward-looking in its technology, it delivers a driving experience that is unprecedented. In addition to the petrol variant, customers will now also have a Hybrid Electric option, thereby enhancing the appeal of the Corolla badge while answering an increasing need for clean motoring in the UAE. We are confident the new model will carry the legacy of the Corolla nameplate even further.”
He added, “Al-Futtaim Toyota has been the pioneer in sustainable mobility in the UAE launching the first Hybrid Electric Vehicle in 2008. The launch of the all-new Corolla Hybrid further reinforces our commitment to the UAE 2021 vision. Over the next few years, customers can look forward to a greater number of HEV models catering to various tastes and needs.”
At the event, Abbasi also introduced Al-Futtaim Toyota’s “When a Hybrid Nation Smiles”, a first of its kind mini-web show that depicts the story of three colleagues who come from different backgrounds, to form a typical hybrid society, representing not only Al-Futtaim Toyota’s customer mix in the UAE: Emiratis, Asians and Arab Expats, but the UAE itself.
The three characters are played by three amazing local comedians, Ali Al Sayed, Muhnnad Al Hattab and Adithya Thomas.
