The new 2021 Toyota RAV4 Plug-in will launch in spring 2021 with an impressive combination of 302hp, 282.5mpg combined economy and CO2 emissions of 22g/km.

It’s not only the most powerful RAV4 ever, it’s also the most efficient model in its class.

Pure electric mode is actually the default and, when there’s sufficient charge in the batteries, the RAV4 Plug-in will run up to 84mph in 100% zero emissions guise.

  Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2020 review Toyota’s seven-seat hybrid SUV will bring its practicality and economy, but hopefully not its floaty suspension, to Europe next yearInside, Toyota has succeeded in taking the Highlander upmarket with this new model. The upscale cabin, at least on our high-end Limited model, has convincing woodgrain trim, comfy leather seats, an imposing, 12.3in infotainment screen and rock-solid build quality.

The electric driving range is up to 46.6 miles, and up to 60 miles in the city.

As Toyota has sold more than 10 million RAV4, the arrival of the Plug-in is significant. It utilises two generations of Prius Plug-in hybrid tech to offer SUV buyers an efficient new alternative.

And a more powerful one – with 38 percent more power than the regular RAV4, 0-62mph is 2.1 seconds quicker.

The 18kWh battery charges from flat to full in 2.5 hours using a 22kW charger (albeit longer if you use a domestic socket).

The new RAV4 Plug-in arrives in spring 2021 and Toyota says more specs and full prices will be revealed nearer to launch.

A regular RAV4 hybrid costs from £30,970.

New Suzuki Across plug-in hybrid SUV has 46-mile electric range .
The Suzuki Across is a rebadged Toyota RAV4; sales start in autumn 2020A Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid has been announced and is about to go on sale in Japan but it remains to be seen whether the Toyota or the Across will reach the UK first. Both cars use the same 2.5-litre petrol engine and have an electric motor on each axle. Suzuki quotes a CO2 emissions figure of 22g/km, which means the Across can enter low-emissions zones without being charged. The low CO2 figure will also appeal to company-car drivers, as it’ll incur a low Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) rating.
