2012 Camry Hybrid Sales to Double Says Toyota

2012 Camry Hybrid Sales to Double Says Toyota

The jury is still out as to whether the Toyota Camry will retain its crown as the best selling car in America for the 10th straight year, but if it does, much of the reason will have to do with the hybrid model.

During the launch of the all-new 2012 Camry just a few weeks back, Toyota Group Vice President and General Manager Bob Carter announced that the company is forecasting sales of roughly 50,000 units for thew new gas-electric model, nearly double the 28,000 units moved last year.

Toyota’s prediction is well founded, with the Camry already touted as the winner in Toyota’s new Camry lineup. Perhaps the most significantly updated of the group, the Camry Hybrid makes a serious leap in fuel economy, offering a 41-mpg average, while also making a healthy 200-hp.
