From Transport Evolved.
Toyota has always chosen to focus on plug-in hybrid, hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell technology over electric vehicles, and its history features many times when Toyota tried its damndest to kill electric cars for good.
But as its hydrogen fuel cell vision starts to fail and plug-in cars become the dominant zero emission choice, the Japanese automaker has upped its plug-in hybrid game from the days of the early Prius Plug-in Hybrid.
Its 2021 RAV4 Prime is the most accomplished plug-in hybrid from the brand we’ve seen – and while we’re always going to recommend a fully-electric car over a plug-in hybrid, not everyone can go all-electric.
And as we’re about to explain, the 2021 RAV4 Prime is actually one of the best transitional vehicles we’ve driven to date.
