2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid – Road Test

Over the past couple of years, I had the opportunity to test most of the hybrid vehicles available today. There are a couple of differing opinion s of what constitutes a hybrid vehicle. Unlike other hybrid vehicles, Toyota’s Synergy system can use the engine in combination with the battery to drive the Camry, as well as use the electric motor/battery on its own – it’s a true hybrid. Ford’s system uses the electric motor/battery up to 30 mph and after that its 100% engine for all your propulsion. The battery/electric motor doesn’t come on at all if you use the A/C or heating system. With the price of petrol constantly rising and no end in sight, I thought it would be a good time to review my favourite hybrid so far – the Toyota Camry. Why is it my favourite? Well, for one it’s the most practical for everyday use while being reasonably priced too.
