More Details About the RAV4 Prime’s MPG

Measuring the Toyota RAV4 Prime’s gas mileage is not so straightforward. There are many factors that come into play, especially the mode in which the vehicle is driven.

Below, I discuss a few important distinctions about the RAV4 Prime to help inform you about its true fuel efficiency.

RAV4 Prime MPG in Hybrid Mode

The Prime has a “hybrid” button that utilizes the gasoline engine and electric motor at the same time. This is a great option for maximum fuel efficiency and range. So, what gas mileage does the Prime actually get when in hybrid mode?

According to torquenews.com, Prime owners are reporting MPGe ratings anywhere from 52 to 99+ when using hybrid mode. Ultimately, this number is determined by many factors such as miles driven, driving aggressiveness, city vs. highway, and much more.

RAV4 Prime MPG Without Charging

You may be wondering what type of gas mileage the Prime will get if you don’t charge the battery. When the battery is depleted, the vehicle still takes advantage of electricity generated by the engine and regenerative braking.

If you operate the Toyota RAV4 Prime without charging it, you will get a gas mileage of 38 combined MPG, 40 city MPG, and 35 highway MPG.

RAV4 Prime MPG-e Rating

Since the Toyota RAV4 Prime is a plug-in hybrid, it has a separate MPG rating for it’s electric-only mode, which is called “miles-per-gallon equivalent,” or MPGe. The MPGe measurement converts the measured energy of a gallon of gasoline into electricity, then rates the RAV4 Prime’s mileage efficiency based on that number.

The Toyota RAV4 Prime has an MPGe rating on 94 combined miles.
