Yesterday Toyota Brasil announced that starting tomorrow the locally produced Toyota Corolla Flex and Toyota Corolla Fielder Flex will go on sale. So what is so special about these Corolla's? The Flex Corolla's are capable of running on 100% bioethanol, making them Toyota's first! The Flex's are based on their 1.8-liter gasoline counterparts and through changes in the fuel system and engine specifications achieve engine performance that surpasses the regular Corolla's, putting some 136hp to the road. Toyota is hoping to sell some 3250 units per month. Press release after the jump More images and write-up in Portuguese after the source jump.
