Will a hybrid Toyota Camry last longer than a gas powered Camry?

Will a hybrid Toyota Camry last longer than a gas powered Camry in terms of how many total miles the car can be driven before a new one needs to be purchased?

I have owned several gas powered Toyota Camry’s that I have all kept well maintained. I have driven all of these Toyota Camry’s over 300,000 miles.

I'm just wondering what the overall life expectancy is for a hybrid Toyota Camry compared to a gasoline powered Toyota Camry.

Hybrid = more moving parts, probably higher chance of failure. Also batteries have expected lifespans. However you expect to replace a lot of stuff on the way to 300,000 mi and I don't really think a hybrid is going to be much worse in that regard. The added weight of the hybrid may affect the suspension and things a little faster but overall most things really should last just as long.

Side note about the question: several means at least 3 so that's 900,000 mi. Even at a silly high per year of 30k that's still 30 years. Have you driven nothing but a camery your whole life?

That is a question about cost and value which a hybrid currently doesn't pull off. This is a question about will it physically last any longer whic I think the hybrid also loses but not by much.

Toyota claims the battery will last the life of the vehicle.  Most cars give up the ghost on an engine that is worn out or a transmission failure.  When the repair cost gets to high you just know it is time to trade.

Sometimes, you have a car you like so well that you will spend what other people think is to much to keep it running.  I have one of those.
