The new Toyota RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid promises to be more powerful and more efficient than any other car in its class. It will be positioned at the top of the RAV4 range and is equipped with intelligent electric all-wheel drive as standard.
The vehicle’s impressive new powertrain begins with the same 2.5-litre petrol engine featured in the regular RAV4 Hybrid.
But it differs in the greater potential of the electric system, which consists of a newly developed, high-capacity lithium-ion battery pack as well as a boost converter added to the power control unit.
Working together, the full system output stands at 302bhp* , which has the potential to offer 0-62mph acceleration in just 6.2 seconds* – faster than any of its conventionally powered rivals.
More importantly, however, it is also on course to deliver best-in-class emissions and economy figures. Our pre-homologation data indicates a CO2 output of less than 29g/km* .
The new Toyota RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid will be introduced in the second half of 2020, with on-sale dates to be determined according to each market.
