    TOKYO, March 12 (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp (7203), the world's second-largest auto maker, is likely to sell a hybrid version of its best-selling Camry passenger car as soon as 2006, business daily Nihon Keizai reported on Friday.
    If true, it would represent a major turning point for eco-friendly gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles that could take them from being a niche segment into the mainstream auto market.

    The newspaper said Toyota was looking at selling more than 100,000 hybrId Camrys a year, mainly in North America.

    The auto maker would likely be able to reduce costs by that time to sell a hybrid Camry at a price that would be attractive to consumers, it said.

    Toyota's current hybrid Prius sedan sells for around 500,000 yen ($4,513) more than comparable gasoline engine models.

    Actually, the new rx coming out at lexus is going to be hybrid, following with the highlander (same platform)

    http://www.toyota.com/about/news/pro...004rx400h.html

    check out paragrahs 6,7 & 8

    With the added instant torque provided down low, i wouldnt be surprised to see toyota make a cool sports car in the late 2000's. Imagine a turbocharged car that pretty much drives lagless (or feels lagless anyhow)

    dont count them out, anyway, the new supercharged scion TC coming out in june wont be so bad.

    the Scion TC is actually pretty nice, the other Scions tho

    hopefully they'll surprise us... but right now i don't think too much of Toyota.
