The new Toyota Camry Hybrid Electric will be unveiled on 18th January 2019 and we bring you across the five things that we know about the Toyota Camry so far.
Under the Hood:
The Toyota Hybrid Electric Vehicle will come equipped with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine which is paired to an electric motor. The petrol engine would be capable of producing 174bhp and 221Nm of torque and the electric motor would produce 116bhp. The standard variant will have a petrol engine, and both these variants will come with a continuously variable transmission.
The exterior of the Camry is longer in length than its predecessor by 29mm, which comes to 4879mm. It is also slightly wider in width as well by 13mm, which comes to 1838mm. Also, the new Camry would be offering a longer wheelbase by 49mm, which comes to 2824mm. Longer wheelbase would ensure that the backseat passengers experience a comfortable ride.
In its teaser video, the Camry is spotted sporting bigger wheels, a sunroof, LED headlights with daytime running lights, and the fog lamps located very close to the front bumpers. Apart from this, a striking V-shaped grille goes well with the headlight’s design style. It seems like the front portion of the Camry’s design team have been taking inspiration from their Japanese counterpart, the Lexus.
The Camry is also based on Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) technology offering improved riding quality, fuel economy, and of course, reduced emissions as claimed by TNGA technology.
Addressing the elephant in the room, the hybrid technology would definitely cost more than its petrol engine variant, since it will be rivalling against Honda’s premium luxury sedan, the Accord. The estimated price for the petrol variant will be around ₹30 to ₹33 lakh and the hybrid petrol engine variant would cost you around ₹40 lakh.
On 18th January 2019, the new Camry Hybrid electric will be launched in India, a detailed walkthrough will be soon coming your way. Stay tuned!
