camry launch invite

The 2015 Toyota Camry will be launched next week, and you’re invited! UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has posted up the invite on its Facebook page, inviting the public to RSVP for limited slots in the “Camry Preview Night”, which will happen on April 2 at the Sunway Convention Centre.

If you’re interested, better hurry because there are only 50 seats for the public to be given out on a first come first serve basis. To RSVP, send an email to [email protected] with your full name (as per IC), mobile number, IC number, vehicle model and email address.

Upon receipt of the registration details, an email will be sent by UMWT to notify whether they have a seat for you, or not. Those who are successful will get a reservation code number by March 30, and an SMS reminder with the code will be sent to you a day before the event. Good luck!

Earlier this week, UMWT held a line-off ceremony to mark the start of production of the latest Camry, which will be available in three variants – Camry 2.0E and 2.0G petrol and the Camry Hybrid 2.5HV, the latter being the first Toyota hybrid to be assembled in Malaysia.

Already launched in Thailand, the Camry 2.0 will get a new 167 PS/199 Nm 2.0 litre VVT-iW D-4S engine and possibly a six-speed auto. The Camry Hybrid has a 2.5 litre Atkinson-cycle engine with 160 hp and 213 Nm. The 2AR-FXE joins forces with a 143 PS/270 Nm electric motor and an eCVT gearbox for a total output of 205 PS and a claimed consumption figure of 19.6 km per litre.

Do expect plenty of toys, too. The Hybrid previewed at the line-off had twin-projector LED headlights, a 10-speaker JBL Green Edge Tech sound system, Qi wireless charger and Blind Spot Monitor. Full details and pics here.
