In line with its commitment towards providing environmentally- friendly vehicles, Al-Futtaim Toyota announced the launch of the all-new Camry Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), offering individuals and corporations the opportunity to be part of the sustainalbe motoring movement, and to experience the power and pleasure of Toyota’s HEV cutting-edge technology in an engaging driving experience.
The all-new Camry HEV provides a comfortable and stable ride with superior handling characteristics, thanks to Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, which retains all of Toyota’s traditional values of superlative build quality and safety while injecting a fun driving experience that plays on all the senses.
The class-leading model can be driven entirely by either electrical power with zero-fuel consumption and carbon emissions, or with a combination of a petrol engine and two electric motors depending on the vehicle speed and customer’s driving behavior.
The batteries in the hybrid electric drivetrain are automatically charged by either the petrol engine or when braking and decelerating, eliminating the need to plug in a power cord.
Furthermore, the all-new Camry HEV does not require a special fuel yet drives like any other conventional car. In addition, thanks to its top-class fuel efficiency, visits to petrol stations will be significantly reduced.
Speaking at the launch event, Suzan Kazzi, Head of Corporate Communications at Al-Futtaim Toyota said, “Camry HEV has been leading the sustainable mobility march since 2008, being the first marque that pioneered the HEV technology in the UAE. With thousands of previous generation Camry HEVs crossing collectively over 100 million KM through taxi fleets, Camry HEV saved collectively over 6000 tons of CO2 in the UAE, contributing to the cumulative 90 million tons of CO2 reduction generated by the global sales of 11.47 million electrified Toyota vehicles.”
Combining two power sources consisting of a petrol engine and two electric motors, the hybrid electric drivetrain on the all-new Toyota Camry HEV produces 208 hp. The drivetrain is mated to an electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (e-CVT) that executes smooth yet quick gear shifts, simulating a six-speed sequential shift transmission to deliver a new level of driving pleasure.
Available in eight distinctive exterior and three interior colours, and 18in alloy wheels, the all-new Camry HEV lets customers express their individuality. The car is available across all Al-Futtaim Toyota showrooms at only Dh133,500 inclusive of VAT.
