NAGOYA, Japan -- Toyota Motor will unveil its first plug-in hybrid Corolla sedan and Levin compact car in China at the Beijing motor show, which opens April 25 in Beijing.

The move, announced Wednesday, is in line with new regulations in China that require automakers to manufacture and sell "new-energy vehicles," that is, electric cars and plug-in hybrids, starting next year.
