2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime: the hybrid electric car more power and sophistication

The thing that immediately impresses you is that the Toyota RAV4 is fast. A 134 kW electric motor sends 199 pounds of torque to the front axle, while a smaller 40 kW motor propels 89 pounds of torque to the rear. Coupled with the 2.5-liter gas engine, Toyota estimates the RAV4 Prime's net output at 302 hp, resulting in a speed of 5.7 seconds from 0 to 60 mph. This is a sports car area.

Toyota powers its RAV4 engine for 2021

RAV4 Prime is very good for its intended purpose. The 42-mile electric range is what you'll actually get in the real world, and using that to its full advantage, the EPA says you should return 94 miles per gallon equivalent. (With only the gas engine running, expect to see 38 mpg.) Leave the RAV4 Prime in its standard driving mode and the gas motor and electric motors run smoothly, although there is a full EV mode in addition to the charge setting, as it uses the gas engine for both propulsion And charge the battery.


Speaking of charging, the RAV4 Prime takes 12 hours to charge its 18.1 kWh battery on a standard home plug. If you have a 240V Level 2 outlet, you can charge the RAV4 in 4.5 hours. Choose the more powerful 6.6 kW charger - an expensive option available only with the Premium XSE package of $ 5,760 - and Toyota says you can replenish the RAV4 battery in just 2.5 hours.


The RAV4 Prime comes standard with Toyota's Safety Sense suite of driving aids, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, road mark recognition and automatic high-beam headlights. The adaptive cruise control is seamless, at least at higher speeds, and can be configured at slow speeds for those times when choppy traffic creeps in on you. It can get a little jerky when you crawl all the way around. Oddly, blind spot monitoring isn't included in the Safety Sense package, although it's still standard on the RAV4 Prime. My Prime XSE tester also has a rear cross-traffic alert and a front and rear parking assistant.
