Toyota presents fifth-gen Avalon with new hybrid system

In Detroit, the Japanese carmaker took the wraps off the fifth-generation of its upper-middle class sedan. Like its predecessor, the 2019 Avalon will be available with hybrid powertrain. However, this time the HEV variant comes with an all-new system.

Thus, the upcoming model will couple a 2.5-litre engine with two electric motors – one to generate power for the system’s Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) battery and one to support the four-cylinder engine. Due to the carmaker’s platform called Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), the battery pack is no longer located in the trunk, but resides under the rear passenger seat.
