We can only hope that this information is correct since 43 miles for a compact, plug-in hybrid SUV is more than respectable. For comparison, the subcompact Kia Niro PHEV only provides 26 miles, and the compact Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV offers a meager 22 miles of all-electric range.

Hopefully, when the all-new RAV4 PHEV is officially unveiled at the upcoming LA Auto Show, Toyota will provide the missing details. However, we're not holding our breath as it seems to have become the norm in the EV space to leave folks in the dark about some of the most important details.
