Solar Roof and LED Lights
Like the 3rd gen Prius, it will also feature solar panels on the roof to power ventilation when the car is parked (so that the A/C doesn't have to work as hard to cool the cabin), and it will have LED lights to save power.

Sales are scheduled to start during second half of 2010.

The production model of the Auris HSD will be made in the UK.
