LONDON — Toyota has begun production of its hybrid Auris car at a plant in Britain.

The first vehicle rolled off the assembly line this morning at Toyota’s plant in Burnaston in Central England.

The car’s so-called hybrid synergy drive combines a gas engine with an electric motor.

Britain’s business minister, Vince Cable, was on hand for the event. He says Burnaston is the only plant in the world to build the new car. The gas engines are being built in Wales.
