When you think about hybrid vehicles, an image of a vehicle that can peel out of a red light and leave surrounding cars in the dust might not come to mind. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime in San Francisco, CA aims to change that. This new addition to the impressive and popular RAV4 family is one of the quickest in the entire Toyota lineup, hitting zero to 60 mph in just under six seconds. It’s also the most powerful RAV4 ever, with its gasoline engine and electric motors joining forces to deliver 302 horsepower.
Two trims of the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime are available: Prime SE and Prime XSE. This gives you a couple of different options to tailor the RAV4 Prime to your needs and preferences.
You’ll find exceptional efficiency here, with the 2021 RAV4 Prime capable of achieving an EPA-estimated 94 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent). At a full charge, the RAV4 Prime can go for up to 42 miles of electric-only driving.
All-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain with the 2021 RAV4 Prime. That makes for a dynamic and more capable drive for numerous different conditions, shifting power to all four of the wheels as needed so you can stay in control.
The 2021 RAV4 Prime seats five people and has 33.5 cubic feet for cargo behind the second row. If you need to fold the second seats down to configure it to carry more, you will open it up to 69.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space.
The 2021 RAV4 Prime offers much in the way of technology for your convenience, information, entertainment, and safety.

And if you want to charge your phone without the hassle of wires, you can opt for the available Qi-compatible wireless phone charger.
