Speaking about the launch of the New Camry Hybrid, Mr. Atul Sood, Associate Vice President, Sales, and Strategic Marketing, TKM, said, “The Camry Hybrid is an amazing amalgamation of power and luxury that has been designed to provide seamless driving experience to our customers. At the same time, it has been designed for a greener and sustainable future as the self-charging hybrid technology delivers a unique combination of exemplary dynamic performance, acceleration, and lower emissions. Over the years, it has endeared itself to thousands of customers and we are confident the New Camry Hybrid will attract many more with its carefully thought-out design and luxurious features. Since its introduction in 2013, the Camry Hybrid is well established in the Indian market and is a testament to Toyota’s unwavering efforts towards a carbon-neutral environment.”
The vehicle is powered by a 2.5-litre, 4-Cylinder Gasoline Hybrid Dynamic Force Engine, coupled with a powerful Motor Generator delivering a combined output of 160kW [218PS]. Customers can choose from three driving modes – Sport, Eco, and Normal. In the Sport Mode, the Dynamic Force Engine improves acceleration response by non-linear throttle control. Studies have shown that strong hybrid vehicles are capable of running up to 60% of the time on electric mode thereby giving high fuel efficiency.
The adoption of Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) enables high body rigidity, unprecedented comfort, and fun-to-drive characteristics besides improved stability and superior handling delivering a combination of sportiness and spaciousness.
The sedan’s ability to shift driving modes along with Ventilated Front Seats and Sequential Shift with Paddles makes driving a truly exhilarating experience. Its cabin is accentuated with a range of advanced features like 10-Way Power Adjustable Driver Seat, ORVM and Tilt-Telescopic Steering Column with Memory Function, Wireless Smartphone Charger, and Heads-Up Display seamlessly blending best-in-class human-machine interface with the interior design.
Further, comfortable Rear Seats with Recliner, Power Assisted Rear Sunshade, Audio, and AC Controls on a capacitive touch panel, placed on the rear armrest provide a luxurious experience. A three-zone personal air-conditioning releases refreshing nanoeTM positive ions that moisturize the skin and hair while deodorizing the cabin. To light up the drive, there is a Tilt and Slide Moon Roof with Retractable Sunshade and a Front Power tilt.
