Toyota has launched the all new 2019 model of its best selling SUV Toyota RAV4 and it now comes with the amazing Hybrid technology combining the best of both Electric and Gasoline powered engines.
Toyota first launched the RAV4 back in 1994 and since than this Crossover SUV has revolutionized the segment and gradually made its way to the top in its class. With the 2019 model Toyota aims to future proof the RAV4 by introducing the latest Hybrid electric technology. It is a combination a of 2.5-litre petrol engine and a rechargeable battery.
Hybrid vehicles are in a way superior than all-electric vehicles when it comes to convenience and mobility. You don’t need to look for a charging station to charge a Hybrid as the Electric motor gets charged by the engine and breaking mechanism of the car.
This combination gives the RAV4 exceptional mileage up to 1000 km per tank. That means you can travel 3 times between Dubai and Abu Dhabi without visiting the gas station.
