Toyota has begun production of its popular 2020 RAV4 Hybrid at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky plant.
The Toyota RAV4 was the fourth most selling vehicle in the U.S. in 2019, according to Reuters, and was a highly acquired asset for fleet operations. The RAV4 Hybrid is available in four trims: LE Hybrid, XLE Hybrid, XSE Hybrid, and Limited Hybrid, all of which are powered by an Electronic-AWD 2.5L 4-Cyl. Hybrid engine and offer an EPA-estimated mpg of 41 city/38 highway/40 combined.
Previously, Toyota redesigned the RAV4 lineup for the 2020-MY, including its RAV4 Hybrid, which it has offered since the 2016 model year as a more fuel efficient and quieter ride.
The Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky plant now produces four electrified vehicles, including the Avalon Hybrid, Camry Hybrid and Lexus ES 300h.
Toyota said it plans to offer an electrified option (hybrid, plug-in, fuel cell, battery) on all Toyota and Lexus models by 2025.
