The future of diesel cars overshadowed all the gleaming new metal unveiled on the opening day of the Geneva motor show.
Product plans beyond 2018 are unconfirmed, a spokesperson said, but the plans will involve phasing out the Avensis, Verso and diesel RAV4 - in the case of the latter, HEV sales outsell the petrol/diesel models two to one.
In the UK, Toyota sold 101,692 units previous year, of which hybrids made up 45,803 units - equating to 45%, similar to Europe.
The demand for HEV versions on its core models has influenced this move by Toyota.

Toyota's distributors in Ireland registered 4,768 diesel cars past year. Toyota says that 90 percent of the vehicle's sales are hybrids.

It added:'Toyota will continue to offer diesel engines in commercial vehicles- such as Hilux, Proace and Land Cruiser - to meet customer needs. In our latest new model, the Toyota C-HR, HEVs accounted for 78% of sales previous year.
Starting with the new generation Auris, this expanded HEV line-up is a natural reaction to their passenger vehicle customers' demands, Toyota insist.
