2021 RAV4 Prime
The RAV4 Prime is Toyota’s first North American plugin hybrid RAV4, promising exceptional fuel efficiency. It’s anticipated to deliver 2.6Le per 100 km. This capability is particularly ideal for daily work commuting because its battery-only range is 60 km. That means you’ll be able to commute to and from work without ever using gas. If you’re on the road longer, don’t worry about looking for a charging station: the RAV4 Prime will convert to a full gasoline-electric hybrid once the 60 km range is depleted. No matter the amount of time spent on the road, you’ll get to your destination with fewer trips to the gas station and with lower fuel emissions.
You won’t be disappointed with the RAV4 Prime’s powerful capability. In fact, the Prime is the most powerful compact SUV in the segment. With an acceleration time of 0-96 km/h in just 5.8 seconds, you can count on 302 horsepower behind the wheel. The RAV4 Prime proves to be the second-quickest vehicle in the Toyota lineup after the GR Supra, and it promises a thrilling feel behind the wheel.
This electrified RAV4 is also ready for any off-road adventure or weather condition. You’ll have advanced, electronic, on-demand all-wheel drive and the responsive handling of its sport-tuned suspension. This combination makes for incredible traction and handling on any terrain type. Like other current RAV4 models, the Prime is built on the same Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform. The TNGA platform features a wider vehicle body stance, extended wheelbase and a lowered center of gravity to give the RAV4 Prime a fresh new look.
The RAV4 Prime is available in 2 trim options:
- PRIME SE
