Toyota Australia, which has just launched the locally built, seventh generation Camry, would like to offer it with BMW diesel engines, according to a local report.

According to, the only diesel Toyotas sold in Australia are the Prado (Colorado) and Land Cruiser SUVs.

Under a new collaboration agreement between Toyota and BMW, the Japanese automaker will be supplied with diesel engines for European models while the German automaker gains help developing li-ion batteries.

Any BMW diesel engine fitted to the Australian-made Camry would probably be a two-litre from the 1-series, the report suggested.
