Thank you, some actual Rav4 PHEV information in after all this official RAV4 thread
Some people get so caught up in the whole EV vs PHEV, which should really be a separate thread it just plugs up a thread like this where people would come to look for RAV4 PHEV info.
I quoted this and will counter it with what I've been told in a non
The RAV4’s popularity has caught quite a few off guard, including Toyota. Combine this with the Covid-19 constraints, and this Japanese manufactured RAV4 is selling as quickly as they are being made, and in some cases, dealers are taking advantage of the scarcity to add quite a bit of dealer markup. We reached out Toyota representative on when supply may catch up with demand and they responded that “Our intent is to increase volume in CY21 as much as possible for us, conditional on the market situation at the time.”
Again in my state my local dealer told me to expect to wait 2-3 years just for the opportunity to be able to plunk down $40k to get a Rav4 Prime
I'm happy I won't have to pay over
sticker(I wouldn't just on principle) but the rest of the US apparently won't be able to see this vehicle for years to come....
I'm not against Toyota selling first to CAFE states, unfortunately MN isn't one and I really doubt it will ever be, well at least for a very long time. I just like Toyota is
making this vehicle available in backward states like mine, Honda and other companies don't always do this and restrict their EV type vehicles to CAFE only states.
