Toyota has today unveiled its Hybrid Camry at the Australian International Motor Show, forming just one component of a very hybrid-focused stand for Toyota this year.

The model on display is a left-hand-drive US-specification car, which has been brought specially to Australia for evaluation by Toyota Australia and the Federal Government.

Production of an Aussie-built hybrid Camry is not expected to begin until 2010, so this is the Australian market's first chance to check out what will soon become the first hybrid produced here in Australia. Click through for Toyota's press release.

Hybrid Camry is a left-hand-drive show car, flown specially to Australia for evaluation and motorshow display.

In just over a year, Toyota will become the first Australian carmaker to build a hybrid vehicle locally when the hybrid Camry goes on sale.

At this year's show, Toyota will also emphasise its global leadership in hybrid technology with displays including an interactive pod and the Toyota Scan-Vision, providing an under-the-skin view of hybrid that resembles an X-ray.

So far, Toyota has sold 1.6 million hybrid vehicles globally.

It estimates these vehicles have cut carbon-dioxide emissions by more than seven million tonnes and saved at least 2.7 million kilolitres of fuel compared with similar vehicles using petrol-only engines.

The company plans to sell one million hybrid vehicles a year globally as soon as possible after 2010.

By the 2020s, it aims to employ its Hybrid Synergy Drive technology across all vehicle series.
