Toyota has prepared a hybrid Toyota RAV4 for EuropeJanuary 15, 2020
A few months after the debut at the Los Angeles motor show in 2019, the Toyota RAV4 Prime received a European specification. In this regional market, the hybrid crossover will be known as the Toyota RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid.
Toyota has declassified the European specification Toyota RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid. Under the hood of the hybrid SUV is a 306-horsepower power plant consisting of a 2.5-liter gasoline engine Hybrid Dynamic Force and an electric motor on the rear axle. Recall, the version for the American car market boasts two electric motors. The first “hundred” hybrid Toyota RAV4 for Europe is gaining in just 6.2 seconds. The cruising range on a single electric traction reaches 65 kilometers, and the maximum speed is 135 km / h. This is despite the fact that the “range” of modern hybrids in the electric mode, as a rule, does not exceed 50 kilometers.
The hybrid RAV4 owes its performance to the new high-capacity lithium-ion battery. Also new to the AWD-i intelligent all-wheel drive system.
From the usual crossover, the Toyota RAV4 hybrid is distinguished by a blue-illuminated emblem, which is located on a black radiator grille, as well as sports bumpers, contrasting body elements and new 18 and 19-inch wheels. Depending on the configuration, the crossover will receive heated seats, a panoramic roof, a Head-up display and modern multimedia with a nine-inch screen and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Europeans will gain access to the new product in the second half of 2020. In our country, a hybrid Toyota RAV4 is unlikely to appear.
