Our plug-in hybrids take you a step closer to a full electric car. They have a bigger battery, and when charged, you can travel further on pure electric energy than a self-charging hybrid.

Refuel when needed

As a plug-in hybrid also has a petrol engine, you can top up your Toyota Plug-in Hybrid at a petrol station, as you would a conventional car.

Plug-in for more electric energy

For fast charging, install a charger at your home and use public EV chargers. You can also charge your Toyota Plug-in Hybrid from a standard plug when needed.

Reduced emissions at the tailpipe

When driving in pure electric mode, there are zero emissions at the tailpipe and no fuel is used. When needed the car switches between a blend of petrol and electric, and pure electric energy.

How do plug-in hybrids work?

PHEVs like the Toyota RAV4 Plug-in take the outstanding range and convenience of Hybrid cars and add the pure-electric capability of a Battery Electric vehicle. To understand more, our animation below shows how our Plug-in Hybrids work.

Lasting Power

Like every element in a Toyota, the batteries in our plug-in hybrids are engineered to last. For peace of mind, every battery comes with a 5 year/60,000 mile warranty. Every service at an Authorised Toyota dealer includes a 12 months / 10,000 miles additional warranty, up to 10 years / 100,000 miles*. Terms and conditions apply.

When the vehicle is over 10 years or 100,000 miles, receive 12 months warranty with every annual hybrid health check you complete, up to 15 years.

Plug-in Hybrid FAQs

Everything you need to know about plug-in hybrid vehicles, the differences to other types of car and more.

Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid vehicles incorporate very similar technology- but with a key difference. Both switch seamlessly between two power sources, an efficient petrol engine and a self-charging Hybrid battery, however, Plug-in Hybrid vehicles feature a higher capacity battery to deliver greater electric performance.

A Plug-in Hybrid can travel exclusively in electric mode for up to around 46 miles*. If travelling for longer distances and its battery runs out of charge, your vehicle seamlessly switches back to operating as a Hybrid car, combining petrol and regenerated battery power to get you safely to your destination. No hassle and complete peace of mind.

Charge more frequently

Charging every day will help you to get the most enjoyment from the electric capability of your car.

A smooth drive

As with a conventional car, where and how you drive affects your range. Your plug-in hybrid will be more efficient on with smooth driving or on the motorway.

Regenerative Braking

Capturing the kinetic energy from braking recharges the battery and intuitively slows the car whenever you lift off the accelerator.


Outside temperature

Be aware that the weather can affect the range of your vehicle and it may need charging more often in cold temperatures.

Charging a plug-in hybrid is simple and means that you can travel further in electric mode. When you buy a Toyota plug-in hybrid, you will receive two cables:


3 Pin Plug cable this is used for slow charging with a domestic 3 pin plug.


32A Type A Mennekes cable this is used for fast charging at home with a dedicated EV charger or when you are using a public fast charger, commonly found in workplaces and carparks.

Most plug-in hybrid customers choose to charge at home for convenience. You can charge through a dedicated EV charger, or even through a domestic plug (although this is slower). Depending on your energy tariff, you may even benefit from lower energy costs if you charge your car overnight.


If you want to charge away from home, fast EV chargers can be found at a growing number of workplaces, and carparks.

*Electric range figures are the maximum official (WLTP) test values provided for comparison purposes, and can vary depending on factors such as selected grade and transmission, accessories fitted (post registration), driving style, weather conditions, speed, vehicle and battery age and vehicle load. Figures obtained after full battery charge. It is best to only compare electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect your real life driving results.
