The 2021 RAV4 Prime is Toyota's new plug-in hybrid compact SUV. The Prime adds some guilt-free all-electric miles to the cruising range and reportedly quicker acceleration to the already highly competitive regular RAV4 hybrid.

At 0:02 you said “this is the 2021 Toyota Prius Prime” it’s the RAV4 Prime
The Prius prime? Might was do some editing before posting CR.
He called it a prius
Its Prime time!
Can I assume 302hp is plenty power for Highlander-prime?
How is the MPG of this crazy #rav4 prime?????
Nouh Fikrat it’s 90mpg Combined with the electric motor. Oh yes and 300 hp with the electric motor pushing with the gas😎 this thing is a game changer
You call this the Prius Prime….it’s a Rav4 Prime….
What Toyota achieved with the RAV4 Prime is as easily possible on the Prius Prime.
Having a plug-in battery that’s x8 to x15 times the capacity of the regular hybrids’ alone guarantees a power increase. What Toyota has changed is it has increased the power ability of the main traction motor. In all past hybrids including the Prius Prime currently, the main traction motors were built adequately enough to accept amps from both the engine/generator and the battery. In large hybrids like the RAV4 and a few Lexuses, the hybrid battery would pump out over 40 hp while the engine could generate over 30hp. The electricity combined goes into the main traction motor, which is fixed to the wheel-road speed.
This RAV4 Prime seems to be able to handle over 120 hp from its bigger battery before it’s combined by whatever the 2.5l engine produces on the side.
If the Prius Prime were built like this (forgetting its lame, 91hp EV lock mode), there would be Priuses with over 180 hp.
0-60 in under 6 secs is quick, not seriously fast tho…but 302 HP makes it pretty legit for a crossover.
Uh, it’s not the Prius prime :s
Rav4 Prime 😉
“Toyota Prius Prime” lol
Pretty big for a “prius prime”. 😂
That’s not a Prius prime. 😏
Bet it won’t be fast after the batteries run out of range and it’s just using only the 4 cylinder gas engine!
