At present Camry hybrid constitute more 80% of total Camry sales showing the increased awareness and acceptance of Hybrid in India. Concerns like road safety and increased pollution are some of the grave problems faced by our country. Hybrid vehicles can truly have a positive impact only if they are widely used therefore to reiterate our commitment to a greener environment we will constantly work towards educating and encouraging the use of Hybrid vehicles in India”.
Camry Hybrid comes with Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) powertrain. Camry Hybrid’s “full hybrid” powertrain combines the performance of a 2.5 litre Atkinson cycle four – cylinder gasoline engine and a high – torque electric motor.
The new Camry Hybrid has a combined power (engine + motor) output of 205 PS coupled with leading – edge fuel economy of 19.16 kmpl* and 122.8 gm of CO2 emissions per km of driving, which is far lesser than the conventional vehicles of similar engine size. The Camry Hybrid comes with an Electronically Controlled Continuous Variable Transmission (E-CVT), which provides enhanced driving performance, with reduced fuel consumption and lower NVH.
