It's already the best-selling sedan in America, so Toyota's primary goal for the all-new, 2007 Camry was to not mess it up. Of course the carmaker didn't, and in fact it looks to be the best Camry yet. Available in four trims that range from the value-priced CE, midgrade LE, sporty SE and to the top-of-the-line XLE, a fifth model joins the lineup for 2007 — Toyota's first Camry Hybrid.

I saw the pictures of the 2007 Camry SE and hybrid. Looks very impressive. It seems the pricing will be available just before the delivery. Hope the price is not increased.
I am in waiting list for my Prius to come, but looks like I will have more choices available soon.
#3 of 3214 My hybrid Camry order!
Jan 14, 2006 (9:48 pm)
I just placed an order today for a Toyota Camry hybird at a Toronto dealership. I was told I was the first one to put down a deposit and should expect to get my Camry sometime in May or June.
At least I will have my foot at the door in case there are long waiting lists. If I find the MSRP pricey then I will cancel my order right away.
A hybrid will be a new experience for me since I am used to owning German performance cars. It is kind of nice to have a performance car and a hybrid car since I believe both types of cars cater to different sides of your brain.
Ofcourse the hybrid Camry will cater to neither side of my brain if I find the price too high. Only time will tell!

I heard about the Camry Hybrid announcement on Thursday and yesterday, January 15, I put a deposit on one (no. 3 in line). I am hoping that it comes with a v6 but it sounds like only a 4 cylinder. I don't know if I would be happy without my 6. I am currently driving my 95 2 door v6, original owner with 156K miles on it. I am also hoping the Camry Hybrid comes well equipped with heated seats, mirrors and hopefully a memory driver seat. I had been planning a ES330 for my new commuter car but I am willing to wait and see how the Camry comes off the line. Figure I can always sell it for what I paid for it if I don't like it.

The future is here ! Midsize with performance (Better than Hybrid Civic and Prius ). 6 cyl. would be nice but the press releases say 4 . Would like a six like the Hybrid Accord that could shut down 3 of the cylinders at hiway speeds . However , I'll take the better city milage of the hcamry toyota synergy drive over Honda Accord . Our HHighlander is a blast . I'm surprised this Camry is'nt getting more buzz here . QUESTION- Are the '07 HCamry's coming over from Japan ? I'd be surprised if they ratcheted up production that fast in Tn. Adapt Early !

Toyota's First North American Hybrid Production Will be in Georgetown, Kentucky
Production of Camry Hybrid to Start in Late 2006
If the above is true then the hybrid Camrys available mid year will be made in Japan. Later this year they will be made in USA.

Look at the blurb on Edmunds site, from the 2006 Detroit Auto Show:
It shows a picture. The 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid uses an electric motor along with a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine. It offers 192 horsepower (as much as the current 3.0-liter V6 model), and can accelerate from zero to 60 in less than 9 seconds. It also delivers 43 city/37 highway mpg.

If those stats prove to be accurate, and assuming gas prices continue to rise in the next couple of years, this car is going to be a HUGE hit for Toyota. It appears to offer a near-perfect blend of style, room, performance and economy, and therefore it will have strong appeal to many families.
I've been following the RAV4 thread, but the hybrid option for the Camry has gotten my attention. Too bad Toyota decided to not offer it in the RAV4.

Some posters emphasize performance on the Camry
If I wanted performance I certainly would not be buying a Camry in the first place. A performance Camry is a oxymoron.
The reason I ordered a hybrid Camry can best be described by the following words in the NY Times artilce linked below:
It's the sheer delight of owning the latest high-tech advancement."

"Some posters emphasize performance on the Camry

This perfomance of the Camry is good about what the current V6 is maybe a little worse. It is definitely a consideration for most car drivers.
The performance Oxymoron is the Prius. The only car in the the entire Toyota line that is slower including the SUVs was the automatic Echo. At 0-60 in 11.5 seconds with a Prius you almost watch paint dry or grass grow faster.
At 0-60 in less than nine seconds thae Camry has the equivalent perfomance of other non-hybrid sedans and you will not have to worry about getting run over entering an expressway.
