New Car: 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid (Australia Version)

The most advanced car ever built in Australia, Toyota's Hybrid Camry, has been officially launched to the market.

Australia's first locally built hybrid car, Hybrid Camry is poised to slash fuel bills and reduce environmental impact compared with other similar-sized family cars.

The secret behind its seamless power and exceptional fuel economy is the world's leading hybrid technology, Hybrid Synergy Drive.

Using just 6.0 litres of regular unleaded petrol to travel 100km*, Hybrid Camry is almost 32 per cent more frugal than the automatic petrol Camry - which was already the most fuel-efficient Australian-built car.

For someone travelling 20,000km a year in a Hybrid Camry, the savings on fuel alone will be 560 litres or $14 a week based on a pump price of $1.30 a litre. The savings rise to more than $16 a week with fuel costing $1.50 a litre.

Tailpipe CO2 emissions will be reduced by almost 1.3 tonnes a year.

The savings will be even greater for the significant number of buyers expected to downsize from a large locally produced six-cylinder car.

A Hybrid Camry can travel almost 300km further on a single tank of fuel than Australia's best-selling car and almost 400km more than the next best-selling Australian-made car - despite both the rivals having bigger fuel tanks.

Hybrid Camry has carbon-dioxide emissions of just 142 grams/km * - similar to that of a 1.3-litre compact car with around half the power.

Australia's two most popular six-cylinder cars emit 55 and 66 per cent more CO2 ^.

Maximum power output from the combined 2.4-litre petrol engine and 105kW electric motor is 140kW - almost 20 per cent better than a petrol-only Camry.

Other technology advancements for Hybrid Camry have significantly improved the car's ride and handling with local tuning of the suspension and steering.
