Toyota RAV4 Prime is set to be introduced on the market in the middle of the next year and it seems to be the best RAV4 being most powerful, quickest and fuel efficient. The model comes with a plug-in hybrid power-train and it is based on the RAV4 hybrid version but with a better lithium-ion battery. Also the 2500 cc engine is capable to offer 176HP and a maximum torque of 228 Nm.
The AWD traction is commanded electronically and it is helped by a rear-mounted engine in order to move the rear wheels. Both engines are able to have an output of 306PS/225KW and it means more than 80PS than the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. With these performances the new model can go from 0 to 100 km/h as fast as 5.8 seconds.
As we said before the battery used is much better and it offers an autonomy of 63 km which place Toyota on the top position in Crossover section. As a comparison its autonomy is smaller than Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid with only 13 km. Also the new battery is mounted under the floor. Due to this fact inside we have more space for our comfort. Also the lower center of gravity helps the car handling and stability.
2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime is coming in two versions, SE and XSE trims. SE version comes with 18-inch wheels while XSE comes with 19-inch wheels. The paddle shifters is a totally new feature we can find in a RAV4 model.
Pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control are only two of the systems offered in order to help the driver to have a safety travel.
Even if is not so much time until the clients can order the car we dont know which is the base price, but for sure soon this information will be offered by the salespersons from Toyota.
