Toyota Alphard Hybrid 20 series

customer feedback

3 cars incl. 2003 Nissan Skyline 350GT Premium

The import process for me finished on Friday July 24th (and started May 10th) so 2.5 months in total, I'm very happy.

My V35 Skyline is everything I could have asked for \ wanted in a sports coupe, and it arrived near 'perfect' as described... the rear bumper somehow has a small burn / grease mark at the bottom right during the shipping / compliance process (as it wasn't there post-auction photos) and the rare factory emergency flare was stolen during transport.

Those two issues aside, the car is immaculate, drives brilliant, engine and gearbox are tight and silky smooth and I've received many comments on how pristine the condition of this one is.

All in all it cost me $xx,xxx landed and complied (after everything).

I've updated my blog to reflect the entire process from start to finish at www.v35skyline.com.

Feel free to have another look :)

Thanks again for your help throughout the process and for sourcing such a great car!

Toyota Alphard hybrid and Vellfire hybrid (ATH20 series)

A hybrid variant of the Alphard and Vellfire (effectively the same car but with a different grille, front bumper and headlights) was released in 2011. Unlike the non hybrid versions the hybrid can be impored as a regular vehicle and does not have to have welcab wheelchair accessibility features, though there are also welcab hybrid versions for those who want them.

The hybrid version has a 2.4L 110kW engine, which combined with the electric motor powering the rear wheels combines to a peak equivalent power figure of 265kW... very respectable indeed for a passenger van! The hybrid of course also is responsible for superior fuel economy figures, achieving an impressive 6.2L / 100km for a vehicle of this size. There is also an EV (Electric Vehicle mode) that forces the car to use battery power only and not the petrol engine.

The Alphard and Vellfire hybrid are available with a variety of very high end luxury features including highly adjustable power rear seat options and layouts. The most basic spec version is an 8 seater, while higher spec models can be a 7 seater with manual adjusting rear chairs, powered rear chairs, higher spec powered, heated and cooled rear chairs and even a rarer 4 seat luxury lounge version.

Standard and optional features include:

ABS brakes Front, side and curtain airbags
