Based on the current fourth-generation RAV4, the hybrid pairs a 2.5 liter inline-four with a pair of electric motors to deliver combined output of 194 horsepower. That is less than the previous model’s V-6 could produce.
It accelerates from 0-60 in 7.8 seconds according to testing, and it will run the quarter-mile in 16 flat, which are impressive numbers indeed. Of course, the real benefit of the hybrid system is the fuel economy. The EPA rates the RAV4 Hybrid consumption at 34 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway.
