Fastest non-hybrid Camry Hybrid Camry four-cylinder

Fuel-sipping hybrid Toyota Camry returns for 2010 without significant changes in their energy Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) efficient propulsion system.

The core HSD Camry’s 2.4-liter 2AZ-FXE Toyota engine, which makes 147 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. This DOHC 16 valve associated with the 2.4-liter engine used in hybrid Camry not last year, but using the Atkinson cycle, instead of the conventional Otto cycle for most gasoline engines. In an Atkinson cycle engine, the intake valves are open both in the compression stroke, allowing a portion of the inlet air to escape without being compressed. The result is less power but better fuel economy and reduced emissions. / Stop system to boot standard Camry Hybrid saves more fuel switching off the engine at traffic lights; It automatically restarts when the accelerator is pressed.

During acceleration, the gas engine is increased by an electric motor of 105 kW, giving a combined output of 187 horsepower. It’s enough to make faster a Camry Hybrid Camry four-cylinder non-hybrid, although the new engine of 179 horsepower latter means that the margin is not as large as in previous years. With one foot in the slightest throttle, the hybrid can run on the electric motor alone up to 20 mph. The HSD is very refined, and the integration of gas and electricity is nearly transparent. Toyota says the battery of nickel-metal hydride has a half life of 150,000 miles. Battery reduces the trunk space of approximately 30%.

The Camry Hybrid has excellent fuel economy for a large family sedan with EPA rating of 33/34. This is much better than the rating of 22/34 of a four-cylinder Camry LE with automatic transmission, but can not match the impressive score of 41/36 new Ford Fusion Hybrid.
