Toyota Kirloskar Motor has launched the All New Camry Hybrid
sedan in India for an introductory price of Rs 36.95 lakh (ex-showroom pan
India). This is the 8th generation Camry and will be available in
India in only one spec. The new Camry Hybrid has been inspired by and is the
first Toyota car under Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). Present at the
launch were Masakazu Yoshimura, (the newly appointed) M.D., Toyota Kirloskar
Motor, Masato Katsumata, Chief Engineer, Camry, Toyota Motor Corporation and N.

The new Camry Hybrid is powered by a 2.5L, 4-cylinder petrol hybrid Dynamic Force Engine and is capable of delivering 175hp@5700rpm and 221Nm@3600-5200rpm. The 4th generation Toyota Hybrid System comes with Nickel-metal-hydride batteries and the ARAI certified mileage is 23.27kmpl. The hybrid motor can generate a peak power and torque of 118hp and 204Nm respectively. The self-charging vehicle can run completely on the electric motor, providing a silent and eco-friendly drive.
