Toyota Camry Hybrid for Thailand and Asia
The hybrid version of the Toyota Camry was only on sale in a couple of developed countries earlier, but the Japanese firm has now started building the petrol-electric car at its plant in Thailand, to supply the Far-East Asian market.
While named the 2009 Camry, its exterior is actually based on the Aurion, with detail changes such as a new grille, a sportier front bumper and clear tail-lights.
The Toyota Camry Hybrid uses a 4-cylinder petrol engine with 147 hp and 187 Nm of torque, with additional 650V electric motors with a NiMH 245V traction battery with a maximum output of 29 kW, adding 40 hp to produce peak power of 187 hp.
Currently, a few standard-design Camry Hybrid taxis ply the roads of Dubai on an experimental basis. Toyota UAE has vaguely mentioned that hybrid cars might come to the GCC.
