Toyota recently unveiled the all-new RAV4 plug-in hybrid at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
This particular RAV4 will serve as the halo model and it promises high performance, efficiency and both on and off-road ability thanks to an intelligent electric all-wheel drive system.
With a full system output of 225 kW, it has the potential to deliver acceleration from rest to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds.
It has developed a new, high-capacity lithium-ion battery and added a boost converter to the hybrid system’s power control unit. The 2.5-litre Hybrid Dynamic Force petrol engine is the same unit as featured in the regular RAV4 Hybrid,
The result is not just rapid off-the-line acceleration. The RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid will also have a greater driving range in pure electric EV mode, with zero petrol consumption and exhaust emissions. The expected range (WLTP standard) is of more than 60km.
