Toyota India has just launched Toyota Camry Hybrid Electric sedan in India which has been priced at Rs 36.95 lakh (ex-showroom). Toyota Camry comes only in one top-spec variant in India.

The company calls it a self-charging electric vehicle. But it is actually a parallel hybrid system that has a 2.5 litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that puts out 178PS of power and 221Nm of torque, along with an electric motor in parallel that puts out 120PS of power and 204Nm of torque.

The car can run either on electric mode or on petrol only mode or in a combination mode, where total power output from the petrol & electric motors is a combined 218PS. The car does not require external charging, but the battery recharges on the go using the petrol motor. It has a 245 volt nickel-metal hydride battery.

The advantage of such a system is better fuel efficiency and much lower emissions. It gives claimed fuel efficiency of 23.27 Kmpl, which is good comparing to many others.

It comes with ventilated and powered front seats as well as power-recline rear seats. It gets three-zone automatic climate control and power sunshade for the rear. The headlamps and fog lamps are LED units. So are the tail-lamps.

In terms of safety the car has nine airbags, traction control and ABS. Some other features include a wireless phone charger, rain sensing wipers, heads-up display, tyre-pressure monitoring, a tilt-and-slide moon-roof etc.
