European success for hybrid cars could boost electrical course demand

Interest in electrical courses could be about to rise after car manufacturer Toyota reported that its success in the hybrid car market should allow it to make progress in other areas of motoring technology.

The firm revealed its sales in Europe increased by 29 per cent in 2010 compared to the previous year, with 70,529 units sold in total.

Etienne Plasa, a spokesperson for Toyota, told Business Green that such figures allow the manufacturer to put more focus on developing all-electric vehicles, which could boost demand for electrical courses in the UK.

"Hybrid vehicles are our core technology, not only because of their strong environmental performance and low cost of ownership, but also because hybrids pave the way for ... other technologies," he was quoted as saying.

The news provider highlighted how the car that stood out for the firm in terms of sales figures was the Auris Hybrid, which recently won the yellow angel innovation award from German motoring organisation Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club.
