2012 Toyota Camry start production in Russia image

The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced that its 2012 Camry has entered production in Russia, at the same facility that’s been assembling the Camry model ever since 2007, the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Russia (TMMR) plant in St. Petersburg.

After we’ve seen the Camry drifting in the Middle East it’s now time for Toyota to promote its new generation which has recently entered production in Russia too, at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Russia plant in St. Petersburg, which will most likely help the automaker save some money with its production costs. The Russian version of the Camry is slightly different than its American brother, coming in with a new set of bumpers, headlights, a simpler grille and larger tail lamps.

“This full model change was a great opportunity for our employees to learn new skills and get extensive new knowledge. We are now fully prepared and very proud of our vehicle, its quality and safety features”, said the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Russia General Director, Yoshinori Matsunaga.

The new generation of the Toyota Camry has been priced in the United States at 23.260 USD for the LE four-cylinder, the version which most people buy, being actually $200 cheaper than the 2011 model year, while the top-of-the-line XLE four-cylinder variant is down $2.000 to 25.485 USD.
