Toyota has announced the US pricing of its upcoming Camry hybrid (2007 model year): It will hit the showrooms in May with a base manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $25,900. "The new non-hybrid versions of the all-new 2007 Camry range from a base MSRP of $18,270 for the four-cylinder manual model to a base MSRP of $27,520 for the V6 XLE model." In comparison, the 2006 Toyota Prius hybrid has a MSRP of $21,725, but depending on what options are included by default in the Camry hybrid (hybrids usually come with lots of premium features), a similarly equipped Prius could come relatively close. The Honda Accord hybrid has a MSRP of $31,540. For lots more information and photos of the 2007 Camry hybrid, see the links at the bottom of this post.
Toyota has also revised its preliminary fuel economy ratings to 40/38 miles per gallon (mpg) US in the city and on the highway respectively, and 39 mpg in combined driving, which translates to 5.8 liters/100 km in the city and 6.18 liters/100 kilometers on the highway, and 6 liters per 100/kilometers combined.
At the unveiling of the car in January, Toyota had issued estimated ratings of 43 mpg US city, 37 mpg US highway and 40 mpg US combined.
The Camry Hybrid is expected to be certified as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV), just one of a handful of cars to meet the strict AT-PZEV standard.
