Toyota RAV4 Plug-In Hybrid: One Step Ahead Of The Competition

For the 2020 model year, Toyota's hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and fuel cell electric cars will come with a 10-year/150,000-mile (whichever comes first) hybrid battery warranty.

The best part of the deal, according to Toyota, is that the same protection will be accorded to hybrid units already on the road so long as they are part of the 2020 batch. Other components covered by the brand's Hybrid System Warranty are still covered for eight years or 100,000 miles.

Buyers of the most popular RAV4 Hybrid Cruiser model now face a wait of more than six months for their cars, although delays vary from model-to-model.

Toyota has dropped the first photo of the new plug-in hybrid version of the RAV4.

Still, Toyota promises the upcoming plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) version of the fourth-generation RAV4 will offer "surprising performance capabilities" and "spirited acceleration".

But the current RAV4 hybrid has a 1.6kWh nickel-metal-hydride battery pack and a combined rating of 39 miles per gallon.

The presentation will be live-streamed on the Internet, and the crossover will be finished in Supersonic Red for the exterior palette.

Expect to see a similar powertrain in the RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid, but with a larger battery and a charge port. The data mentioned above can provide a hint of what can be expected in November when the 2021 RAV4 Plug-in makes its official debut.

"Other RAV4 Hybrid models now have different wait times and we urge customers to contact their dealer to discuss options".
