toyota hybrid carToyota Camry Hybrid

The Toyota Camry hybrid is the hybrid version of the extremely, popular Camry sedan. It has a four-cylinder gas engine, a 650V electric motor, and a NiMH (nickel metal hydride battery) battery. The electric motor powers the brakes, heater, air conditioning, and power steering, which cuts down on the gasoline engine. The engine runs only when the computer tells it to, which helps to make this car very fuel efficient.

The Toyota Camry hybrid also features a continuously variable transmission (CVT) which is a type of automatic transmission that can change the gear ratio to any arbitrary setting within the limits. The CVT is not limited to a small number of gear ratios, such as the 4 to 6 forward ratios in typical automotive transmissions.
