​Toyota offers attractive cash rebate for the Camry 2.5 Hybrid

Get RM8000 off from the usual price tag in this limited time offer by UMW Toyota!

If you are ever looking for a reason to own an executive sedan with hybrid capabilities, this is the right opportunity to do so as UMW Toyota Motors is offering an attractive cash rebate of RM8000 for customers purchasing the Toyota Camry 2.5 Hybrid model. However, those who are interested are advised to act quick as this special offer is available on a limited number of units and while stocks last.

Bearing an actual retail price of over RM 250,000, the Camry 2.5 Hybrid was the first in its class to be certified as an Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) by the Malaysian government under the National Automotive Policy. With incentives given to locally assembled models that meet the EEV criteria for a certain period agreed by the government, the Camry 2.5 Hybrid’s price tag has been slashed down dramatically to around RM 175,000.

Featuring a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine paired to a small high-torque electric motor, the Camry 2.5 Hybrid rolls with a combined output of 202bhp with 213Nm of torque available from the engine and an additional 270Nm from the electric motor. 

Thanks to the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive technology developed over the years producing hybrid cars, the Camry 2.5 Hybrid could make use of either engine or electric motor at any time, or even both when required. It is also possible to drive using only electric power up to 40kph, consuming no petrol at all and producing zero emission while at it.

Compared to other 2.5-liter sedans with only a petrol engine, the Camry 2.5 Hybrid is already more economical but Toyota takes it a step further with the ECO mode which increases the driving range. The Camry 2.5 Hybrid is paired to an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) that sends power to the front wheels and the latest E-CVT generation offers enhanced driving performance, reduced energy drain and lower noise levels.

Although the Camry 2.5 Hybrid does come with engine start-stop operation to save fuel, this should not be a concern at traffic stops in the searing hot Malaysian afternoon for example as the air conditioning will still operate as usual as it is driven electrically to keep the occupants comfortable in the car. All the electric energy is stored in a high energy density battery pack that is constantly recharged while the car is in motion or even while braking.

For a peace of mind for the owners, the Hybrid battery pack is built with high quality standards and comes with an eight-year warranty (terms and conditions apply). All Toyota cars including the Camry 2.5 Hybrid now comes with a five-year full warranty with no limit mileage and it is also possible to transfer the warranty if the car changes ownership within the first five years.
