Toyota Camry Hybrid Electric Vehicle Accelerated Reliability Testing – January 2009
Two model year 2007 Toyota Camry hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) entered Accelerated Reliability testing during July 2006 in one fleet in Arizona. After reaching 160,000 miles each, the two Camry HEVs will have their traction batteries tested before they are retired.
Fact sheets and maintenance logs for these vehicles give detailed information such as miles driven, fuel economy, operations and maintenance requirements, operating costs, and life-cycle costs.
The two Camry HEVs have been driven a total of 320,189 miles. However, during the final month of operations, November 2009, 486 miles were driven on the final Camry but no fuel was added, so the final cumulative fuel use is 33.6 mpg based on the 319,703 miles accumulated at the end of October 2008.
