CommentToyota launched on Friday the New Camry [ Images ], the new variant of the luxury sedan, in India, looking at an yearly sales of 500 units of this model.

The New Camry would be available in four grades and is priced between Rs 21,26,000 and Rs 23,40,000, officials of Toyota's Indian unit, Toyota Kirloskar [ Images ] Motor, told a news conference in Bangalore.

The launch was seen as Toyota's attempt to revitalise sales of this model.

The sales of existing Camry (the earlier version) went down by more than 75 per cent in the April-June quarter -- it sold 44 units as compared to 182 in the year-ago period --, losing marketshare to rival SkodaAuto in this category.

"Camry is not a volume product", deputy managing director of TKM, Sandeep Singh, said. It's more of a brand and 'showcasing of technologies' by Toyota.

TKM's managing director, Hiroshi Nakagawa, said the Toyota Camry has already defined the concept of premium car in India and the New Camry 'will offer an exclusive blend of modern styling and luxurious features'.

The New Camry sports new design exterior, is available in two colours -- Dark Green Mica Metallic and Beige Mica Metallic -- and its other features include Plasmacluster A/C with Minus Ion Generator, intelligent rain sensing wipers and moonroof, company officials said.

I see a resemblance of the Camry grille to that of the new Innova grille. Perhaps, this is a new styling cue from Toyota. Love the new fogs as well that appear to be a lot bolder and stand out.

Yup.
Toyota needs to build the camry here, Only then it may become a successful product. I would still prefer the new Accord over it anyday.

What kind of research is toyota doing? A whopping 4 lakhs more than the accord 2.4. This is after Honda itself put a premium on the accord.

I'm glad that this car is failing, if you don't want to spend money building the car here, you don't deserve any sales.

The pricing is insane .The 2009 Camry here in US is around 21k around 8 lacs!!!

I dont see why people should buy it.You can get a much better car for 12 lacs.

I always wondered what would the sales numbers have to be to invest in building a car locally. I really dont think its viable unless you will run the assembly line for more years like some people do (not maruti ofcourse)

Exactly! I just tried to convert the cost into $. If only there were more contenders in the Rs10-20 lakh segment, more sporty or more refined sedans to be precise.
