    According to a Detroit Free Press story published at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday October 10:

    Toyota will launch a plug-in hybrid version of its popular RAV4 SUV . . . The RAV4 is on track to be America’s best-selling non-pickup this year, making the new model a key part of Toyota’s strategy to establish hybrids as mainstream vehicles of all sizes and types.

    Expect Toyota to promote the plug-in hybrid as the most capable RAV4, with more power of better performance than other models of the compact SUV.

    Toyota already sells a hybrid RAV4. The plug-in will have bigger batteries so it can travel for miles on electricity alone before its gasoline engine is needed. The 2019 RAV4 hybrid is rated at 40 mpg in combined city and highway driving. Prices start at $27,850.

    The RAV4 plug-in hybrid will make its public debut at the Los Angeles auto show, open to the public Nov. 22-Dec. 1.

    Toyota also announced a new 2021 luxury version of the fuel-cell Mirai.
