Toyota's next U.S. hybrid will be a Camry, according to Japanese press reports. Look for its arrival next year.
Because the Camry shares its underpinnings with the Lexus RX and Toyota Highlander wagons - which have hybrid variants reaching dealers now - adapting the powertrain to the Camry shouldn't be a big stretch.
Will the hybrid Camry roll out of Toyota's plant in Georgetown, Ky., which builds most Camrys sold in the United States? Toyota's U.S. execs have pressed for hybrid production in U.S. plants, and an announcement is expected this summer.
