Aussies can now buy a locally-built hybrid car, the Camry Hybrid. We take a look under the skin to see what makes it tick and the numerous subtle differences that differentiate it from standard Camry vehicles.
It doesn't shout "I'm a hybrid driver" like the Prius does, but there are plenty of visual cues for trainspotters and other Camry drivers.
At the front the hybrid Camry has a unique, more aerodynamic bumper and grille arrangement.
The unique grille and front bumper makes the Camry look almost sporty.
The Camry Hybrid comes fitted with 16-inch alloy wheels and low rolling resistance tyres.
Blue-tinted headlight lenses are a Toyota/Lexus hybrid-styling trait.
It's harder to tell the Hybrid from normal Camrys from the rear.
Clear indicator lenses are present on both models.
The satin chrome bits are a really nice touch.
Just in case you're unsure, there are plenty of Hybrid badges everywhere
The subtle boot lip spoiler is only present on the Luxury model.
The interior's pretty radical, for a Camry.
Go for the option pack, and you'll get Toyota's sat nav system married to a 7-inch touchscreen monitor.
For the driver, there's a simplified energy monitor nestled in the speedometer.
The continuously variable transmission features an engine braking mode for steep hills.
This cubby hole is perfectly sized for holding CDs, but they'll obstruct the power and auxiliary ports.
The instrument pack's Optitron lighting is both beautiful and easy on the eye.
This concave section reflects in the windscreen on bright, sunny days.
There's plenty of space for five people.
Yes, it's a hybrid, we get it.
Rear-seat passengers have their own air-conditioning vents, but no controls.
Up front are the petrol and electric engines, while out the back is the electric motor's battery pack.
Together the petrol and electric motors can deliver up to 140kW of power to the front wheels.
Lithium-ion batteries store more power in less space, but they're also more expensive, so Toyota's sticking with nickel-metal hydride batteries for the moment.
All Camry Hybrids come with a reversing camera, as well as rear parking sensors.
The plipper allows for keyless entry and start, although we did mistake the emergency alarm for the boot release on more than one occasion.
The rear seats flip down via this little release in the boot.
The 12V battery that powers the car's accessories is also located in the boot.
A full-size spare wheel resides underneath the boot.
Not only does the battery pack reduce boot space, it reduces the usefulness of the fold-down rear seats.
Heat from the battery pack is vented into the cabin.
Bluetooth hands-free is standard, but voice control on option-packed models is limited.
The steering wheel audio controls are handy and lit at night.
Cruise control is a standard fit, but we wish the dashboard light would glow different colours when the system's on and when it's actually regulating the car's speed.
The 7-inch touchscreen theatrically folds down to reveal the loading slot for the four-disc CD stacker.
The Luxury model features a rear-vision mirror that automatically dims itself at night.
Electric front seats for Luxury model owners, but there's no heating/cooling element, nor memory.
