On show will be the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), which, powered by batteries, can run further and at high speeds than a conventional hybrid on its electric motor alone resulting in zero tailpipe emissions and zero petrol consumption.

The battery on the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle can be recharged using a standard electricity supply, either at home, work or at a dedicated public charge point. The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle features a petrol engine which will automatically be used when required, removing the driver's concern of charge range.

The new Toyota yaris will also be on show, alongside the Toyota iQ.

The Lexus CT 200h, which will be available for visitor test drives, offers CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km and 68.9mpg fuel consumption on the combined cycle.
