Toyota is expanding its SUV range with the addition of the RAV4 plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and new Highlander, both of which can be ordered from January 4 2021.
The RAV4 PHEV will be priced from £47,395 on-the-road and the first customer cars will be delivered in Q2 2021.
The new variant is the flagship of Toyota’s hybrid electric range and also the most powerful RAV4 yet, its system producing 306PS. The battery enables a 46-mile driving range on a full charge at speeds up to 84mph. Official fuel consumption is 282mpg with 22g/km CO2 emissions, securing a benefit-in-kind rate of just 6% for company car tax payers.
The new model will be available in two equipment grades: Dynamic and Dynamic Premium. Based on the equivalent RAV4 Hybrid specification, RAV4 Plug-in Dynamic will offer 19-inch alloy wheels, nine-inch multimedia touchscreen, access to connected services, heated front and rear seats and LED projector headlights. To support its EV capability, it will come with a 6.6kW (32A) cable for fast charging (wall box system required).
The Dynamic premium version (£50,895) adds features including black leather upholstery, front seats with ventilation and memory settings, panoramic roof, head-up display and JBL Premium Sound System.
The Highlander Hybrid will be offered in the UK for the first time in 2021. The seven-seat SUV will be priced from £50,595, with first deliveries commencing in March.
