Toyota Gives Canada A Look At New Hybrid | 2021 Toyota Rav4
Canada finally got its first look at the highly anticipated 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime. This brand-new hybrid variant SUV made its debut at the latest Los Angeles Auto Show and marks the first plug-in hybrid SUV Toyota has added to its eco-friendly lineup of automobiles. The RAV4 Prime is in direct competition with Mitsubishi’s Outlander PHEV, as well as the forthcoming Escape PHEV by Ford.
2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime First Plug-In Hybrid SUV
Toyota expands their hybrid domination of the fuel-efficient vehicle market with the addition of the 2021 RAV4 Prime. It marks the first hybrid SUV they have produced that also includes EV-only capabilities. The RAV4 Prime offers two trim levels, the sporty grade SE and XSE paired with sport-tuned suspensions and more-aggressive styling details. It will also be available with all-wheel drive for enhanced traction on Edmonton’s seasonal terrain. In addition, the bigger hybrid battery in the 2021 RAV4 Prime now comes with a 10 year/150,000 warranty.
RAV4 Prime – More Economical And More Powerful
Besides the generous range of 62.76km in electric driving mode, the new Toyota RAV4 Prime also offers plenty of get-up-and-go with a 302-horsepower engine. This makes it even more powerful than the old V6 powered RAV4s and the second-quickest model in Toyota’s entire lineup with a time of 5.8 seconds from 0 to 100km, placing it right behind the GR Supra.
Toyota RAV4 Technology Delivers Efficiency, Safety And Convenience
Delivering zero emissions when driving up to 60 kilometres, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Prime takes environmentally friendly operation and fuel efficiency to the next level, making it a must-have for commuting around Edmonton. Toyota has not yet released the RAV4 Prime’s fuel economy ratings, but it is safe to assume the numbers should fall in line with those of the RAV4 Hybrid, which delivers an average 6L/100km.
Expect the 2021 RAV4 Prime to have exceptional safety with the standard inclusion of Toyota’s Safety Sense suite of advanced driver assistance systems. A few of these features include:
- Lane Departure Warning
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Automatic Emergency Braking
- Lane Tracing Assist
- Automatic High Beams
- Road Sign Assist
Standard convenience and technology features on the RAV4 Prime boast heated front seats, along with a 7-inch touchscreen in the dash for directions and connectivity at your fingertips.
