It may be this one: Toyota ND engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There is an aygo using the same engine here: 90mpg Aygo - Toyota Owners Club - Toyota Forum
I thought it may be smaller than 1.4 but it's not.

Anyway, back on topic. I believe another reason a diesel hybrid was not made is due to the diesel not coping too well with the constant on/off. Turbo issues i suppose.
