Toyota’s 2021 Rav4 hybrid gets a plug

Toyota to extend hybrid battery warranty to 10 years from date of first use/150,000 miles whichever comes first

Toyota to extend hybrid battery warranty to 10 years from date of first use/150,000 miles whichever comes

On the outside, the vehicle will look nearly like the RAV4 Hybrid model but this Plug-In Hybrid will be getting a different grille along with vertical accents lights.

"Customers who ordered a RAV4 Hybrid Cruiser, our most popular RAV4 model, can now expect wait times longer than six months from the date of purchase", the spokesperson said.

Pricing for the 2020 RAV4 Hybrid starts at $29,220 including the $1,120 destination charge, rising up to $37,750 for the Limited trim level.

CNET said the upgraded warranty will see the bump-up of the original coverage, which was set at eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever may come first.

That figure works out at 48 kilometers if you were wondering, and chances are Toyota will offer the RAV4 Plug-In Hybrid in Europe as well.

Interestingly, the new derivative will take the form of a plug-in hybrid.

Toyota has made official a possibility that has been recently suggested by execs as a next step, and all but been confirmed by spy shots: that it will make a plug-in hybrid version of the RAV4 hybrid, and soon sell that in the U.S.

"It's wearing a new color called Supersonic Red, which looks frankly great on the RAV4, itself an already stylish crossover", it states, adding that Toyota says the plug-in RAV4 will be "the most powerful RAV4 yet", but didn't provide further details. The new version of the SUV will only be the second plug-in hybrid model in Toyota's lineup. The combination makes 219 horsepower. We'll have to wait until November 20 to get more information on the plug-in hybrid SUV.
