The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published fuel consumption data for the Toyota RAV4 Prime 2021 hybrid crossover model year.

The official data of the US Environmental Agency (EPA), regarding the hybrid performance of the Japanese Toyota RAV4 crossover – this version was designated Prime, were published a couple of hours ago. This data contains information on the power reserve of the car in fully electric mode, as well as the overall fuel efficiency of its plug-in hybrid engine.

According to these data, the Toyota RAV4 Prime 2021 crossover model year with an 18.1 kWh battery can travel 67.6 km in fully electric mode and 965 km in combined mode (gasoline + electricity).

This makes it the best PHEV car in the compact crossover segment.

In terms of efficiency, in fully electric mode, the consumption is 2.5 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (223 W / km), while in hybrid mode, this figure is 6.19 liters (combined), which is about 5 % lower compared to the usual hybrid (without prefix plug-in) version of the crossover, but still significantly better than non-hybrid all-wheel drive RAV4.

Despite the decent results and the expected high demand, the number of available copies of the RAV4 Prime can be very limited, at least until some point in 2021.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Toyota announced a new crossover on a fresh teaser. Toyota will present its new SUV in a few days, whose name is so far kept secret. Apparently, we are talking about Corolla Cross.
