Toyota Camry with Hybrid Synergy Drive.
hybrid leadership with its exclusive Hybrid Synergy Drive (known in
other Toyota and Lexus models)
reaches now the 2007 Camry.
Synergy Drive consists of dual gas and electric power sources that are
complementary and produce a combined 192 horsepower. This system
varies power between gas and electric, or both, as needed.
first half of this system consists of the 2.4L four-cylinder 2AZ-FXE
Atkinson-cycle engine, which generates 147 hp and is coupled to a
continuously variable transmission (CVT). The second half of the
Hybrid Synergy Drive equation consists of a small, specially developed
electric drive motor that produces 45 horsepower, an ultra-small
inverter with a specially designed compact battery and a transaxle to
provide the economy and seamless performance hybrid drivers seek.
addition to Hybrid Synergy Drive, Camry Hybrid comes with a long list
of standard features, including a tire-pressure monitoring system,
halogen headlamps with automatic on/off, a premium JBL audio system
with an auxiliary audio jack and Bluetooth« technology, cruise
control, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, dual-zone automatic
climate control heating and air conditioning, an eight-way-adjustable
power driver's seat, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, 16-inch
aluminium wheels, heated outside rear-view mirrors and much more.
the Camry Hybrid is equipped with an "ECO" button that
limits energy consumption by the HVAC system and under certain
conditions can help improve fuel economy.
there are situations in daily driving in which the gas engine in a
Toyota hybrid is completely shut down, air-conditioning and
power-steering systems are driven electrically, rather than by the
engine. This ensures these features will continue to operate, whatever
the status of the Camry Hybrid's drive system.
special attention was paid to the vehicle underbody with the use of
wheel spats and underbelly pans resulting in a low coefficient of
aerodynamic drag (Cd) of 0.27, which helps increase fuel economy.
also has an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty that covers the hybridľrelated
components, including the HV battery, battery control module, hybrid
control module, and inverter with converter.
- The Camry hybrid has fuel economy ratings of 43 mpg city (5.47
litre/100 km) / 37 mpg (6.36 litre/100 km) highway.
