Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) today launched The All New Camry – Camry Hybrid and Camry Gasoline. The All New Camry comes with an unmatched offering of luxury. It has been designed to match the refined and ever evolving customers need for a luxury car. The All New Camry has an essentially new exterior that creates an even more innovative, prestige appearance appropriate for luxury sedan.
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 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.
The Camry Hybrid a full hybrid is a self charging vehicle, unlike an electric vehicle. When the vehicle decelerates or at the time of braking, the electric motor acts as a generator and converts the kinetic energy to electric energy in a process called regenerative braking. This energy is stored in Camry Hybrid’s HV battery pack for later use when needed to power the vehicle.
Taking luxury to the next level the Camry Hybrid provides an advanced air conditioning system with three – zone control, a pollen filter and break through nanoeTM water coated ion technology. It provides moisturizing benefits to occupants’ skin and hair and deodorises the cabin.

- Rear armrest with controls for power recline rear seats, power sunshade for rear windshield, audio system and air conditioning

We would like to thank the customers of Camry for its success in India. We have sold more than 8000 Camry since launch. Camry Hybrid, India’s first ever locally manufactured Hybrid has also been well accepted. There is increased awareness and acceptance of Hybrid in the Indian market. Currently Camry hybrid constitutes 73% of total Camry sales.
Rising oil imports, road safety and increased pollution are some of the grave problems faced by India. Environment – friendly vehicles will go a long way to remedy this. Hybrid vehicles can truly have a positive impact only if they are widely used. It is our endeavor to constantly educate and encourage the use of hybrid vehicles in India.
We would like to thank the Government for initiating the FAME scheme, aimed to facilitate faster market creation and manufacturing eco system for environment friendly vehicles like hybrid. 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 demand and encourage faster adoption of these vehicles in India.”
