Pricing for the Toyota Camry Hybrid will remain unchanged throughout the year 2016, UMW Toyota has announced. It will carry on with the same price tag of RM174,900, as it still qualifies for the Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) incentive under the National Automotive Policy (NAP).

UMW Toyota president Datuk Ismet Suki said the company was glad that the hybrid incentive was extended for the Camry Hybrid – which is the first Toyota hybrid model assembled in Malaysia – until the end of 2016.

That said, the price will remain only throughout the year 2016. “At this point, however, we can only confirm the continuation of the same price for the whole of 2016. For the year to follow, we will need to have discussion with the relevant government ministries again,” he explained.

On January 1, UMW Toyota increased prices of most of its vehicles, with the hikes ranging from RM3,170 to RM9,598. Vios variants have gone up by 3.2% to 4.3%, while Hilux models saw a higher increase between 5.8% to 8.6%. The depreciation of the ringgit against the US dollar was said to be the main factor behind the higher prices.

The D-segment Camry Hybrid is the range-topping variant in the local Camry model line-up. The hybrid sedan sports a 2.5 litre VVT-i engine that produces 160 PS and 213 Nm, and the mill is mated to an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (E-CVT). As mentioned, it’s price at RM174,900, on-the-road including GST sans insurance, while the battery pack comes with an eight-year warranty.
