Toyota Motor Corp one of the major automobile manufacturer of Japan has reportedly launched what the company claimed as the world's most fuel-efficient hybrid car. According to reports, the compact car, dubbed 'Aqua' in Japan and the 'Prius C' overseas, has a listed fuel efficiency of 35.4 km/litre (83.3 mpg), beating the current top Prius, which gets 32 km/litre.

Reports further said that the company is looking to fend off competition from the rival electric car makers. The report stated that rivals Nissan Motor Co and General Motors Co are seeking to share the green limelight with their Leaf and Chevrolet Volt electric cars, though sales volumes are expected to stay relatively low until the high price of batteries comes down significantly.

It was mentioned in the report that Toyota projects for monthly Aqua sales in Japan of 12,000 units, with a starting price of 1.69 million yen. The Japanese automaker, which dominates the hybrid field, is aiming to launch about 10 new gasoline-electric models by 2015 and offer a fuel-sipping option across its entire line-up around 2020.
