2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid to Debut In January
Finally, details on the 2007 Camry hybrid are coming! We have already said that we expect the Camry hybrid to use a 4-cylinder engine and we have posted the first photos of next generation Toyota Camry, and now Toyota has announced the world premiere of the car: "the all-new 2007 Camry mid-size sedan and the much-anticipated Camry Hybrid [will be unveiled] at a press conference at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in Detroit." The press conference will be held on Monday, January 9 at 1:20 PM and a video of it will be available on the official Toyota website.The press release adds:
Toyota extends its hybrid leadership by making its exclusive Hybrid Synergy Drive available in the 2007 Camry. The Camry Hybrid will deliver the highest level of Camry performance ever achieved in both fuel efficiency and low emissions and also achieve impressive power.
We'll have to wait to see how much emphasis they have put on each of these three elements, but if the car really has a 4-cylinder engine and a drag coefficient of 0.28, we can expect good fuel economy.
