Toyota Australia has released information on a new concept car in advance of its 2009 Melbourne International Motor Show debut. The Toyota HC-CV, is a sign of the near future when Toyota's down under facilities will begin production of a new Camry hybrid car. Toyota announced that the production version of the concept will likely have a four-cylinder petrol engine paired up with a large electric motor, making it a full-hybrid vehicle. Design-wise, the production model will also share many details with the new HC-CV.
Also designed in Oz, the HC-CV is noticeable almost immediately by its vertical fog lights, headlights with a blueish hue, and its small-but-bold upper grille. Toyota logos have a blue background, and the rear LED lamps also have a blue tone. Some of the lights' lenses have a waterfall graphic on them as well.
This concept car will be Toyota's major presentation at the Melbourne International Motor Show this year. President Yasuda said, "The startling paintwork, dramatic lines and sporty appearance of this concept car convey the excitement and passion in our company to produce Australia's first hybrid car."
You can see the Toyota HC-CV in Melbourne beginning later this week. The production model Toyota Camry Hybrid is due out within a year's time.
