2021 RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid is more efficient than Toyota

Toyota RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid

The new Toyota RAV4 Plug-in takes its place at the pinnacle of the RAV4 range and as the flagship of Toyota's hybrid model line-up. It is a vehicle that delivers an unmatched combination of power and environmental efficiency in its class

Its introduction strengthens and extends the appeal of the RAV4, the model which created the market for recreational SUVs and which has amassed more than 10 million worldwide sales

Toyota has applied its leading hybrid technology expertise to create the Toyota RAV4 Plug-in, producing a vehicle that is not only powerful, but which also outperforms all its rivals in terms of low emissions and fuel economy. The model's final homologation data indicates 22 g/m CO2 and 1.0 l/100km (Combined WLTP cycle)

RAV4 operates as an authentic electric vehicle: EV running is its default mode, in which it can cover around up to 98 km in urban driving (City WLTP cycle) on a full battery charge, comfortably more than the average European daily commute, and reach speeds of 135 km/h, with no intervention from the hybrid powertrain

When extra engine power is needed, the capability of the 2.5-litre Dynamic Force powerplant ensures efficiency remains class-leading. Battery charging is simple and safe, and can be accomplished in 2.5 hours using a 230 V/32 A connection. As standard, owners can use the MyT app to schedule and monitor battery charging remotely and also operate the air conditioning system to warm up or cool the cabin before setting off

Beyond its sophisticated and effective powertrain technology, Toyota RAV4 Plug-in retains all the qualities that have made the fifth generation RAV4 so successful since its launch in late 2018. This includes the dynamic benefits of the low centre of gravity and high body rigidity inherent in the Toyota GA-K vehicle platform. It also comes as standard with AWD-i intelligent all-wheel drive

RAV4 Plug-in is a complementary model to the RAV4 Hybrid, consolidating Toyota's electrification programme


With the newToyota RAV4 Plug-in, Toyota has created a vehicle with a dual DNA: one that has strong and genuine EV capabilities but which can also operate with highly efficient hybrid electric power

Toyota has drawn on its experience of engineering two generations of the Prius Plug-in and has adopted an incremental approach to add extra performance to the efficiency of the plug-in technology. This has produced what is the most powerful model in the RAV4 range and one which delivers best-in-class performance in its segment in terms of EV driving range, CO2 emissions and fuel efficiency

For the Prius Plug-in, the focus was on extending the EV driving range by using a larger high-voltage battery with the established 53 kW electric motor from the hybrid model. By contrast, RAV4 uses a more powerful motor together with a larger battery and inverter to gain significantly more drive power as well as the ability to cover much greater distances and travel at high speeds in EV mode

Maximum output for the full powertrain, including the 2.5-litre Dynamic Force hybrid engine, is 306 DIN hp/225 kW - 38% more than the RAV4 Hybrid - enabling 0-100 km/h acceleration in 6.0 seconds - 2.1 seconds faster than the hybrid. Drivability is improved, for example with 50% more power available at 60 km/h

In EV mode, performance is comparable to a 2.0-litre petrol model, with 0-100 km/h acceleration in 10 seconds
