The Mercury Cars Guide : February 6th 2010
20--- Classifieds 62 300 400 carsguide.com.au Saturday, February 6, 2010 Camry continues to add value Fuel economy is shaping up as the new battleground for the locally built Aussie sedans. Neil McDonald reports ECONOMICAL: The 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid is expected to be the most fuel-efficient car built in Australia. AS momentum builds for Toyota's newest green ma- chine, it has released fuel economy figures that show the hybrid Camry will achieve a combined fuel economy figure ''in the low 6.0-litres per 100km range''. Despite being about 70kg heavier than the petrol Camry, the hybrid is tipped to be the most fuel-efficient, locally-built car in the country. The equivalent petrol four-cylinder Camry delivers 8.8 litres/100km. Toyota says that compared to its bigger locally built six-cylinder rivals, the hybrid is expected to save at least 1100 litres of fuel in a year of city driving. Toyota's corporate manager of product planning, Peter Evans, ex- pects the car's fuel consumption and emissions to rival many small and compact cars. Evans says motorists could save at least 1100 litres or $1320 a year driving with the hybrid. This is based on a metro pump price of $1.20 per litre for regular unleaded petrol. ''Fleets operating more than several vehicles stand to save far more,'' Evans says. Servicing costs will be the same as the petrol version. Hybrid Camry owners will only have to pay $130 for up to four standard scheduled services during the first three years or 60,000km. The hybrid will be powered by a 2.4-litre four cylinder and electric motor, which develops about 140kW, and then mated to a continuously variable transmission. Apart from economy, the hybrid will emit less than 150g/km of greenhouse gases. Although it is built at Altona, VIC, the car's hybrid components will be imported from Japan. Much of the car has been locally re- engineered for Australian driving styles, ride and handling expec- tations. It looks similar to the petrol car, it gets a sleeker underbody and other aerodynamic aids to maximise fuel economy at highway speeds. Toyota Style Australia senior de- signer, Paul Beranger, says the car's design is an amalgamation of the global car with local tastes, particu- larly with the interior. He says it must communicate the advance technology without alienat- ing buyers ''from the face that Camry represents''. ''We are integrating mainstream with new technology,'' he says. ''We have to ensure that the car appeals to existing owners as well as early adopters.'' ''Extensive local research by Toyota shows that customers interested in hybrids were aware of that tech- nology.'' Toyota plans to sell 10,000 hybrid Camrys in the first year.
