Toyota Launches New Model RAV4 PHEV
"The RAV4 is the pinnacle of this brand, which paves the way for Toyota brand's crossover SUVs. The new model RAV4 plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) augments the superior performance of RAV4 by realizing the full potential of the plug-in hybrid system"
Toyota has launched the new model RAV4 plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) through dealerships in Japan on June 8, 2020.
Since its debut in 1994, RAV4 has pioneered the crossover SUV market and remains the market leader. The fifth-generation RAV4 was released in April 2019. It has been popular with many customers, thanks to the superior driving performance delivered by three types of 4WD systems, including Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD; a design that fuses refinement with SUV-like power; spacious luggage storage; and an interior designed for convenience, making it suited to diverse situations.
The new RAV4 PHEV aims to boost the fun-to-drive appeal of RAV4, adopting the newly developed Toyota Hybrid System (THS II). The front motor and inverter achieve more powerful output than the RAV4 hybrid system, and the combination with the new model, high-capacity, high-output lithium-ion battery achieves maximum system output of 225 kW, facilitating sporty, powerful driving. It also achieves a BEV driving range of 95 kilometers, top level in its class, for greater driving pleasure in BEV mode, thus also realizing superior environmental friendliness.
