The right button lets you choose between EV mode or HV mode and if you hold it for 5 seconds you put the vehicle into battery charging mode, and will only run on gasoline until you turn off the car or hold the button again for 5 secondsReply Strong review. ThanksReply Hotrod that does 5.8-second 0-60 LMFAO you sir are a joke.Reply Most ugly car i rather buy TESLAReply One of the UGLIEST SUV's…and over-priced AF!Reply I bought a hybrid RAV4 last week, does this Prime RAV4 allow itself to be charged up from the motor also like the hybrid or strictly plug in. Thanks, good review by the way.Reply In early January I put an order in for a Prime (British Columbia). The broker contacted me last week and told me that the wait time has been pushed back and that the Prime I ordered probably won't be delivered to me for at least 2 years. Originally, the wait time was around one year, which was fine for me. He (the broker) ordered his Prime a year ago and was told he may have to wait another year.I've given up waiting for a Prime and I'm now looking for something else.Reply everything about this prime is really good. the only downside – price. they are charging you so much. with that price, i rather get a 4runnerReply Great review. I like the content – no fluff, straight talk and fairly objective.Reply Trying to get one of these is like trying to get a job during this pandemic = near impossible.Reply Apparently at cold temperatures the heating in EV mode is non-existent (due to how heat pump works) and thus will need gas engine to warm up. I suppose one can use a 12V internal heater.Reply 9:43 – That's not correct, that button is for you to switch manually from EV to HEV mode and vice versa. The car is in EV mode by default when you start it if the battery is full. Now if you long-press that button it'll actually turn on the gas engine to recharge the battery. That's why it says "charge hold" meaning hold the button if you want to charge the battery and NOT to hold the EV range for later use! You should've done your homework better. I came here to be informed and ended up informing you!Reply I would classify RAV4 a CUVReply Just got mine last week. It's awesome. Well worth the (very) painful waiting listReply Thanks for a great review. It would have been very helpful to add the Canadian and provincial electric vehicle financial incentives available as they help a great deal on lowering the initial purchase price.Reply Toyota RAV4 Prime is unfortunately on waiting list for next 12 months in Croatia. Sibling from RAV4 Prime – Suzuki Across came recently to our market, so I tried … and finaly bought it. First 1500 km passed … It is good car. Met all my expectations. I realy enjoy driving it !Reply You can't sleep in the car without connecting to power. That's a bit disappointing. Room mode should be allowed when HV battery has more than 20% charge. Tailgate can't be opened with remote once you are inside. That's a bummer. Utility less SUV.Reply Just got my hands on one finally last week. Payed cash and I’m very happy with the purchase! Just in time for tax season.Reply Why is your charge port is full of snow?Reply Any issues putting on snow tires for the winter with the PRIME ?Reply You still need to fill the tank every month, because the gasoline usually can only be stored that long. However, maybe only fill the tank half full is OK.Reply If you want this vehicle basically you have to pay what the dealer says… don’t try to negotiate the price because they have 10 or more buyers talking to the next salesman for the same car!!Reply I see you had winter tires on…Reply This is a minimalist camper's dream. You can totally live in these things and boondock a charging station anywhere.Reply Motors are the same, battery power output is enhanced.Reply I’m on the list to get one here in SK. I may get one this month but it keeps getting delayed. Toyota really needs to make more of these.Reply Went to the dealer, there's a 1 to 2 years waiting list, good luck getting one…Reply Not sure if Canada is different from the US but Toyota is making so few only morons dumb enough to pay $2+K over invoice are able to get one. Sorry but a Rav4 over $45K is just stupid as its their entry level SUV with mediocre at best interior. Don't get me wrong I'd pay the $39K MSRP for the entry level SE thanks to tax rebates.Reply Charge hold – means hold the button down to initiate battery charging mode. Gas engine runs to power propulsion and charge the battery. Gas engine will charge the battery to 80%. Though not at all energy efficient, there are times when it is useful.Reply Great review, I think that these are pretty expensive, but definitely insanely quick. They're really hard to find at least here in the US. I've seen you do some videos with lighting demos, maybe you could do some more of those? I think they're really helpful.Reply the real question is what is the pay back period $$$$$ Toyota RAV4 LE AWD $36,906.93 vs. Toyota RAV Hybrid LE $39,460.73 vs. Toyota Prime SE 48,065.93 (Canada EV rebate included) , cash price tax included in Ontario CanadaReply Fantastic reviewReply Great review! Thanks for comparing all 3 models. Seems like the Prime is the logical choice.Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
