The Toyota Camry luxury sedan returns to Brazil only as a plug-in hybrid and costs R$331,790.

In one XLE model, a plug-in hybrid (HEV), the Toyota Camry luxury sedan has returned to Brazil, costing R$331,790 and expanding the company’s lineup of electric vehicles. The car will join the Corolla hybrid (and Corolla Cross) and the RAV4 hybrid in Brazil.

Your sale already starts this week, like bring Toyota, in all brand businesses in the country.

With this return, the Camry ditches the V6 under the hood to bring a 2.5L DOHC four-cylinder 16V VVT-iE engine with 178 hp at 5,700 rpm and 22.5 Nm of torque at 3,600 rpm. Calculating 120 hp and 20.6 kgfm of torque from the three electric motors accompanying it, we have a maximum power of 211 hp. The nickel-metal hydride battery pack is located under the rear seat.

Its transmission is automatic (eCVT), the car is in the design of front wheels with McPherson suspension, with anti-roll bars in front and independent suspension, and anti-roll bars in the back. There are four driving modes: Normal, Eco, EV (100% electric) and Sport.

100% electric here requires some context: an HEV hybrid, not a plug-in, is a gasoline vehicle. A conventional engine charges the battery with electric ones, and these cannot be charged from the mains. It ends up using less gasoline, but the electric car’s energy comes from the gas station pump. An HEV cannot, unlike a plug-in hybrid (PHEV), use an electric motor as its main source indefinitely: it sometimes needs to turn on the internal combustion engine to charge.
