The new generation Toyota Camry is all set to launch in India today. Available in Hybrid guide in India currently, the new eighth-gen model will likewise be available in its self-charging hybrid form. The eighth-gen model was launched internationally late last year and immediately got everyone's attention with its stand out styling. While the outgoing CBU-Toyota Camry Hybrid was priced at Rs 37.3 lakh, ex-showroom, we expect that price tag to swell marginally, to around the Rs 40 lakh, ex-showroom. For more information on the Camry, follow our live blog below.
