The Toyota Camry Commemorative Edition has been announced this week, marking 54 years of Australian manufacturing for the Japanese manufacturer before factory doors close in October.
Limited to just 54 units – one for each year Toyota has built vehicles in this country – the limited-edition Camry is based on the top-spec Atara SL Hybrid variant, priced from $41,150 plus on-road costs.
Toyota says the flagship hybrid variant was chosen as its “the most sophisticated version of Australia’s most technically advanced mass-production car”.
Unique features include metallic silver paint with a contrasting black roof, red garnish on the lower front grille, blue lighting for the footwells and ‘Camry’ scuff plates, sports mesh interior trim, along with Commemorative Edition floor mats and badging.
Other equipment carried over from the base car includes seven airbags, rear-view camera, pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beam, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, satellite navigation with live traffic updates, a JBL audio system, leather-accented seats, front and rear parking sensors, and wireless phone charging.
Like the Atara SL Hybrid, the Camry Commemorative Edition features a 151kW petrol-hybrid powertrain, which teams a 2.5-litre aspirated petrol engine with an electric motor and electronic continuously variable transmission. Fuel consumption is rated at 5.2L/100km on the combined cycle.
Australian employees have produced over 2.1 million Camrys, with 1.2 million of those exported to overseas markets.
One of the 54 special Camrys will be kept by Toyota Australia, and one other will be sent to the Toyota Motor Company Museum in Japan – leaving 52 for customers.
