Toyota’s previous press release has detailed the new RAV4 Prime, which can now be ordered in the United States. In 2021, the Toyota RAV4 Prime will become the most powerful and fastest RAV4 in history and will be sold in dealerships starting at $38,100 this summer. The first plug-in model of the RAV4 has up to 302 horsepower and can travel at 0-60 mph in approximately 5.7 seconds, making it the fastest four-door model in the Toyota series.

The RAV4 Prime can also achieve the manufacturer’s estimated 42-mile range on a single charge, making it the highest EV range of any PHEV SUV on the market. RAV4 Prime also has up to 94 manufacturer estimates of MPGe combinations. RAV4 Prime also has a standard electronic AWD on demand.
RAV4 Prime uses the same electronic all-wheel drive on demand (AWD) version as the RAV4 Hybrid. In both models, the rear wheels are driven by a separate rear electric motor when needed, including active driving during acceleration and when traction is reduced.
RAV4 Prime uses a different version of the 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine from the RAV4 Hybrid. It produces the same estimated power of 176 hp as a hybrid car, but along with an electric motor, the total system output equals 302 hp.
The RAV4 Prime’s passenger space is not affected by the large lithium-ion battery because it is installed under the floor. The installation position also makes the RAV4 Prime’s center of gravity lower and improves driving stability.
SE grade is the new RAV4 Prime grade, and XSE is currently exclusive to RAV4 Hybrid.
SE announces its sporty style with 18 inches. Painted and machined aluminum alloy wheels, as well as a unique front grille and front lower spoiler design. The piano black exterior and painted grille/diffuser make the appearance more perfect.

Like the current RAV4 Hybrid XSE, the Prime version of this class (starting at $41,425) is highlighted by the available two-color exterior paint scheme, combining the black roof with selected colors, including the new, eye-catching RAV4 Supersonic Red.
