It is common to be interested in a hybrid but be concerned about the higher sticker price. In reality, the Toyota Camry Hybrid will let you save money over time. This is due to a combination of fuel economy and incentives, giving you money back upfront as well as savings throughout your Camry Hybrid’s life.
The most obvious way that a Toyota Camry Hybrid will save you money is by going through gas more slowly. The Camry Hybrid LE lets you get 43 mpg* city, 39 mpg* highway, and 41 mpg* combined, while the SE and XLE only do slightly worse, achieving 40 mpg* city, 38 mpg* highway, and 40 mpg* combined. Compared to the average numbers for a non-hybrid vehicle, this means you can go an extra 5 to 10 miles on each gallon. While that may not seem like much at first, it adds up to savings well before you reach 100,000 miles.
Not everyone always remembers the other major way that driving a Toyota Camry Hybrid will save you money: through incentives. The federal government offers you an incentive for driving a hybrid in the form of a tax credit, and many states and cities offer similar incentives. These can be in the form of a credit on your taxes, the ability to park for reduced prices or drive in carpool lanes, and other similar perks. The tax break will save you money every year, while the savings on parking can give you discounts whenever you go certain places. Even driving in the carpool line will save you money, as it reduces the time of your commute.
To round out the financial benefits of driving a Camry Hybrid, consider that as a Toyota, it also comes with ToyotaCare. This means that when you buy or lease your new sedan, you won’t have to pay for roadside assistance or certain factory scheduled maintenance for 2 years or 25,000 miles.
