Toyota To Make Hybrid Camrys in US in 2H 2006

Nikkei News reports that Toyota has decided to start building the long-expected gasoline-electric hybrid version of the Camry in the US sometime in the second half of 2006.

The Camry is the top-selling passenger car in the US, selling 426,990 units in 2004. The car is undergoing a full model change next year.

According to the report, the new hybrid model will initially be made at the Kentucky plant (which manufactures the gasoline versions).
