The 2015 Toyota Camry will be launched on April 2, just three days away, but eager sales agents have already put up ads on car classifieds like oto.my and mudah.my with indicative pricing for the car.

We first saw the Camry Hybrid listed on oto.my for RM200k in January this year. The latest indicative pricing given seems to be about RM175k, which puts it head to head against the Honda Accord, which is priced at about RM174.8k OTR with insurance.

The new Camry Hybrid will be locally assembled to take advantage of duty exemptions in Malaysia. UMW Toyota says based on the production line set up at UMW Toyota’s Shah Alam plant, they will be able to make about 7,000 units before the duty exemptions expire at the end of this year.

We already know some of the Camry Hybrid’s equipment from our observation at the car’s line-off ceremony. We managed to spot a 10-speaker JBL sound system, Blind Spot Monitor, Qi wireless charger and a Nano-E air conditioning system in the interior. One of the ads on oto.my reveals the following new information – if the ad is accurate, it will also come with 7 airbags and Rear Cross Traffic alert.

There will be a “Camry Preview Night” on April 2 at the Sunway Convention Centre. It’s open for a public to sign up, but if you’re interested, better hurry because there are only 50 seats on a first come first serve basis. To RSVP, send an email to updates@toyota.com.my 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!
