Prices unveiled for Toyota Camry Hybrid

Toyota's recalls seems never-ending. We almost forgot that the well known Japanese carmaker builds still cars, not just repairing the old units. And now we hear about the cost for the 1st hybrid ever, Australian made.

You can find the Camry hybrid in two variants, Hybrid Camry Luxury and entry-level Hybrid Camry, for AU$39,990 and AU$36,990. Both will have upgrade wraps cost between AU$4500 and AU$3000. Toyota wants to sell 10,000 models at least every year.

David Buttner, the marketing and sales director of Toyota Australia (according to a source) said Hybrid Camry gets a lot of virtue in the automotive world, especially since it's costing less then 40,000 Dollars. This Hybrid Camry model is the Australian motoring future, bringing hybrid technology to those mainstream vehicle customers.

The Camry hybrid uses a mix of an electric drive and a petrol engine 2.4l, together getting 188 hp (140 kW), up from the 157 hp (117 kW) made by the basic sedan unit.

All cars will come fitted with 6 airbags, electronic stability control, a rear-view camera, 16-inch alloy wheels having full-sized spare, audible rear parking sensors, keyless entry plus start and dual-zone air-conditioning, GoAuto reported.
