The Hyryder will be manufactured by Toyota at its Bidadi plant, which will then be shared with Maruti Suzuki. Toyota has recently announced investments towards the localization of hybrid powertrain components, which along with economies of scale should keep prices in check. 

It will be equipped with a 1.5-litre strong self-charging hybrid powertrain, thus having high fuel efficiency as one of its main highlights. It will further feature drive modes, namely, pure-petrol, hybrid, and pure EV, which the system will switch between automatically. It will also get the 1.5-litre petrol engine with mild-hybrid technology as a relatively affordable option.
