How efficient is the 2021 RAV4 Prime?
Most people will be able to complete most of their daily trips using the 2021 RAV4 Prime without using a single drop of gasoline. When the vehicle’s battery system is fully charged, it will allow up to 42 miles of electric-only driving. However, if you intend on going further than that, you will still have a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine to get you where you’re going. The gasoline engine will offer up to 302 net horsepower and be able to return fuel economy scores of up to 40 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway.
2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime Battery Charging Time
Obviously, the whole point of owning a 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime is to use the gasoline-powered engine as little as possible. The standard charging equipment, which applies 120 volts at 12 amps or 240 volts and 16 amps, will fill an empty battery to 100 percent in 12 hours (120V at 12 amps) or 4.5 hours (240V at 16 amps). The upgraded system will provide 240 volts at 32 amps and will reduce charging time to 2.5 hours.
How much room does the battery use?
In early plug-in hybrid vehicles, the battery packs were large enough that cargo volume was more than somewhat hampered. This is not the case in the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime. When people are sitting in the rear seats, there will still be up to 33.5 cubic-feet of cargo volume to use. Folding the rear seat down will open the cargo bay up to as much as 63.2 cubic-feet of cargo volume. The batteries are installed under the vehicle’s floor.
