now launched the all new Camry in India. The Camry will have two engine options
in India like before, the Camry Petrol which is priced at Rs. 28.80 lakh and the
Camry Hybrid priced at Rs. 31.92 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom Delhi.
Hybrid comes with Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) powerunit. The powertrain
combines power from a 2.5 litre Atkinson Cycle four cylinder petrol engine
along with an electric motor producing a combined output of 202bhp. Due to the
hybrid technology, the Camry Hybrid generates a claimed fuel economy of
19.16kmpl even though the electric motor only has a range of 3kms with the
batteries, the kinetic energy and heat generated from coasting or regenerative
breaking, which would normally be wasted, help to recharge the battery.
Therefore there is no need to plug in to charge the batteries and the total CO2
emission per kilometre from the Camry Hybrid is 122.8gm. The engine is mated to
an electronically controlled Continuous Variable Transmission (E-CVT).
of the Camry also gets a much deserved update. For starts on just module of the
headlamps, a total of 9 different bulbs doing multiple different things can be
found on just a single side including the daytime running LED lights, which
totals to 18 different bulbs to illuminate anything in front of the driver with
daytime running. A chrome radiator grille and a chrome strip that runs along
the entire width of the car at the front, 15 spoke alloy wheels, electronic
OVRMs with memory function, acoustic glass (hybrid only), new LED rear Lamps
and rear fog lamps.
government incentives from FAME also take shape soon, customers may even get up
to Rs. 70,000/- benefits from the original price from the Camry Hybrid, Toyota
estimates. The Prius on the other hand will not benefit from the FAME
regulations as it’s brought into the country as a CBU.
like to thank the customers of Camry for its success in India. We have sold
over 8,000 Camry since it was launched” said Naomi Ishii Managing Director Toyota
Kirloskar Motor. “The Camry Hybrid, India’s first ever locally manufactured
Hybrid has also been well accepted. There is increased awareness and acceptance
of hybrid in the India market. Currently Camry Hybrid constitutes 73pc of total
The recently notified demand incentives
under FAME which stipulated upfront reduced purchase price at the time of
purchase to buyers will give a boost to the demands and encourage faster
adoption of these vehicles in India” Ishii added.
