The Toyota RAV4 Prime is the most powerful RAV4 yet and offers the highest EV range of any plug-in hybrid SUV on the market. This Toyota model is equipped with a boost converter and a high-capacity Lithium-Ion battery, which together help generate a total system output of 302 horsepower. Fitted beneath the hood is a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine, which is the same engine found in the RAV4 Hybrid.
