Toyota has produced the RAV4 for many years and it has remained popular over time. This April, Toyota introduced the 2016 RAV4 Electric Hybrid at the New York Auto Show. Toyota has been the overwhelming gas-electric hybrid sales leader in the US since 2000, so it is really no surprise that the RAV4 has been revamped in 2016 as an electric hybrid vehicle.
On the exterior of the all new RAV4 Electric Hybrid, you find a refreshed look with only a few changes to the front styling, LED lighting in the front, new rear bumper and liftgate with LED lights. Three exterior colors are available on RAV4 Electric Hybrid: Silver Sky Metallic, Black Currant Metallic, and Electric Storm Blue.
Added convenience technologies include: front and rear parking sonar, available Smart Key and Homelink, available Scout cell phone based navigation, and Sirius/XM radio. It will also feature a new Bird’s Eye View Monitor which utilizes four cameras that are mounted on the front, side mirrors, and rear of the vehicle to give the driver a panoramic view and driver’s assistance when parallel parking.
Under the hood on the all new RAV4 Electric Hybrid you will find improved fuel economy with better acceleration and more horsepower than its gas cousin. Toyota, however, has not release engine specs for the 2016 model. Safety equipment on the RAV4 Electric Hybrid include: pre-collision system, forward collision warning, lane departure alert, automatic high beams, pedestrian pre-collision system, and dynamic radar cruise control.
