2007 Camry Hybrid - Toyota's Popular Intermediate Car Made Even ...

TORONTO, Feb. 15 /CNW/ - Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI) will unveil a
hybrid
version of its best-selling Camry intermediate car at the 2006
Canadian
International Auto Show in Toronto. Just as the
conventionally-powered Camry
has set a world-wide standard for safety, quality and affordability
in family
transportation, the new 2007 Toyota Camry hybrid redefines the
global
benchmark for the segment, combining outstanding driving
performance with
exceptionally low emissions and fuel consumption.
Thanks to Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) powertrain, the
new Camry
Hybrid is designed to exceed the world's most stringent emissions
standards,
including California's strict Advanced Technology Partial Zero
Emissions
Vehicle (AT-PZEV) regulations, and achieve fuel economy comparable
to sub-
compact cars. Camry Hybrid is expected to deliver estimated fuel
consumption
ratings of 5.6 L/100 km in the city and 5.7 L/100 km on the
highway.
To meet the uncompromising performance expectations of owners,
HSD also
maximizes available power. For example, because HSD's powerful
electric motor
is able to deliver maximum torque instantly (unlike conventionally
powered
gasoline engines, which only deliver maximum torque at high engine
speeds),
the Camry Hybrid can deliver seamless acceleration with just a
touch of the
throttle.
"The new Camry Hybrid adds an important choice to the
automotive
marketplace, combining all the qualities that have made Camry one
of North
America's best-selling cars with the outstanding environmental
performance of
Toyota's advanced Hybrid Synergy Drive," said Tony Wearing,
Managing Director
at TCI. "Since the introduction of Prius, the world's first
mass-produced
hybrid vehicle, Toyota has led the market in making hybrid
technology
affordable and easy to live with. The new Camry Hybrid raises the
standard for
environmentally-friendly transportation yet again."
Camry Hybrid's HSD powertrain delivers an impressive
V6-equivalent
performance of 192 horsepower. It includes a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder
gasoline
engine that develops 147 horsepower, and is coupled to a
Continuously Variable
Transmission (CVT). HSD also comprises a small, specially developed
105-
kilowatt electric drive motor, along with an ultra-small inverter
with a
specially designed compact 244-volt nickel-metal hydride battery
and a
transaxle that provides the fuel economy and seamless performance
sought by
hybrid drivers.
Along with the performance advantages of HSD, the new Camry
Hybrid is
also equipped with the roominess, comfort, quality and safety that
are built
into every Camry:

- Quiet as well as clean: a sleek, aerodynamic exterior
manages air flow
so that the Camry Hybrid has a drag coefficient of just
0.27,
enhancing driving performance and reducing noise as well as
improving
fuel economy.

- Comfortable and convenient: a high performance electric
climate
control system keeps the interior comfortable, while
features such as
Toyota's Smart Key system maximize convenience.

- Top levels of active and passive safety: the Camry Hybrid is
equipped
with Toyota's advanced Vehicle Dynamics Integrated
Management (VDIM)
system, brake assist and electric power steering to enable
drivers to
maintain maximum control.

The new 2007 Camry Hybrid is expected to go on sale in Canada
in the
spring. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
