Toyota Corolla Hybrid 2.0 180HP + LPG system ALEX IDEA dual
Toyota Corolla TS Kombi 2.0 180 HP Hybrid – operation of the engines
The basic drive in this Toyota is a naturally aspirated 2-liter internal combustion engine with a power of 153 HP and a torque of 190 Nm. For this we have an electric motor and a hybrid battery. The total power of this system is 180 HP (132 kW). For dessert, we will also add LPG system ;)!
So how does all of this work together?
The electric drive will work well at constant, low speeds and when moving calmly up to 50 km/h. It can be slow starting from traffic lights or maneuvering in a parking lot. Then the internal combustion engine is switched off and only the electric motor works.
But if we go faster or we don’t go steadily, both electric and internal combustion engines work. The charging of the battery (energy recuperation) takes place during braking. It is best if it is smooth, delicate and as long as possible.

According to tests carried out by motofakty.pl, fuel consumption in this model is as follows:
- on the motorway: 7.5 liters of petrol per 100 km
- in the city: 6.5 liters of petrol per 100 km
It’s not much compared to internal combustion cars, but we were hoping for a better result in the Toyota hybrid. Also the owner of this car ;). That’s why he came to our company’s workshop and left with the ALEX IDEA LPG system installed. This autogas system will perfectly support the discussed Corolla engine with dual petrol injection.
