That’s a decent start for the mid-size sedan, which costs a whopping INR 37.50 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is worth noting that this is the introductory price.
The 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid is cheaper than the previous generation Honda Accord Hybrid that costs INR 43.21 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), but it’s very expensive compared to the VW Passat and Skoda Superb which are priced from INR 25.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The Lithium-ion battery pack is lighter and delivers a higher fuel economy.
