    New Toyota Camry Hybrid gathers over 400 bookings

    Toyota launched the fourth-gen Camry Hybrid in India on January 18, 2019 at a price of Rs 36.95 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Camry is Toyota’s most premium sedan offering in our market and it competes with the Honda Accord Hybrid and convention engine models like the Skoda Superb and the Volkswagen Passat.

    The new Camry Hybrid has received a good amount of interest from potential buyers. Today, Toyota has announced that the executive sedan has received over 400 bookings and sold more than 130 units since its launch in January. The company also stated that there is a waiting period for the Camry Hybrid, although the duration is unclear.

    Speaking about the Camry, N. Raja, Deputy Managing Director, Toyota, said, “We are delighted with the overwhelming response that the all-new Camry Hybrid has received from customers across India. We have more than 400 bookings already and have sold more than 130 units since launch on Jan 18 2019. We are capitalising all our efficiency to reduce the current waiting period for the Camry Hybrid.”

    Powering the Camry is a 2.5-litre petrol engine that puts out 178hp and 221Nm of torque. Additionally, there’s a 245V battery pack and a 120hp electric motor that works in tandem with the petrol motor. Power is sent to the front wheels via a CVT automatic gearbox. On the official test cycle, the new Camry Hybrid returns 23.27kpl.  

    The Toyota Camry was first introduced in India back in 2002 and has gone through three generations in the past 17 years, with total sales of 11,425 units (as of January 2019). Toyota hopes to continue the success story with this fourth-generation model.
