So, what is the electric range for the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime? While a lot of the vehicle’s performance will come from a gasoline-powered engine, a lot of trips people take can be completed without using a single drop of fuel.

How far will the 2021 RAV4 Prime go in EV mode? 

Like a lot of new Toyota hybrid platforms to hit the market in 2021, the all-new RAV4 Prime offers several driver-selectable driving modes, including one that will only employ energy stored in its high-capacity batteries. When the 18.1 kilowatt-hour battery pack is fully charged, owners of the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime will be able to travel up to 42 miles – one of the longest EV range figures for any plug-in hybrid vehicle on the market today. 

Even when the 2021 RAV4 Prime is using its gasoline-powered 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine, owners will be able to expect it to return Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy estimates of 40 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway. 

These efficiency scores are even more impressive when they’re held up to the fact that the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime is the most powerful version of the popular crossover SUV ever built. This holds true even when going back several model years to the days when the RAV4 had an available V-6 engine option. When the gas engine and electric motors are working together, the 2021 RAV4 Prime will produce 302 net horsepower.
