Fuel-Efficient Vitz Tops Japanese Sales

10 May 2005

Vitzf

Toyota’s redesigned Vitz compact car was Japan’s best-selling vehicle model in April.

Sales of the new version (earlier post), which Toyota began selling in February, tripled to 13,344 units last month, according to the Japan Automobile Dealers Association. (Bloomberg)

Toyota had set a goal of 10,000 units per month at the launch of the new version.

The new Vitz models offer 1.0-liter, 1.3-liter and 1.5-liter engines with VVT-i (Variable Valve  Timing–intelligent) and continuously variable transmissions to provide higher performance while maintaining low fuel consumption.

Toyota is also implementing its stop-start system—Intelligent Idling Stop System—in the redesigned Vitz.

Using a Li-Ion battery/starter system implemented with the CVT, the stop-start system helps lower the Vitz fuel consumption to 25.5 kilometers/liter (3.92 liter/100km, or 60 mpg) in the 1.0-liter version. This is an 8.5% improvement over the previous version of the Vitz with IISS (released in 2003), and, according to Toyota, is the best gasoline fuel consumption in Japan, excluding minivehicles and hybrid vehicles.

Awesome! I hope the model we get in Canada has the stop/start feature. We'll probably only get the 1.5 liter engine, though.
