January 11, 2005

TOKYO, JAPAN — The Daily Yomiuri reports that Toyota Motor Corp plans to produce Camry hybrids in the U.S., reported Green Car News.According to the report, Toyota will export the engine and hybrid systems from Japan to its assembly plant in Kentucky. The Camry has been the top-selling car in the U.S. for the third straight year, with output of some 420,000 vehicles last year, and this, along with spikes in crude oil prices, helped prompt the world's second-largest automaker to decide producing hybrid vehicles in U.S., the report said.As noted earlier by Green Car News, the Hybrid Camry could be out as soon as the 2006-model year.
