VACAVILLE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Hybrids can produce satisfying efficiency numbers but still burn gas. All-electric vehicles avoid using gas but can cause range anxiety. In between the two are plug-in hybrids, and in the Vacaville, CA area, Toyota Vacaville has two plug-in hybrid Toyota models that it offers.
A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, or PHEV, as its name implies, can be plugged in. Charging up in a garage overnight or in less time at any of the 20,000 chargers installed nationwide, a PHEV can provide all-electric driving. The all-electric range is limited, but once the vehicle runs out of electric charge, it transitions seamlessly into normal hybrid operation. For many drivers, a PHEV can stay in all-electric mode for a significant portion of its driving.
The Prius is a long-standing staple of the Toyota lineup, and though it is a traditional hybrid, it has a sister vehicle with a PHEV drivetrain. The 2021 Prius Prime is available at Toyota Vacaville, and as a PHEV, it provides 25 miles of electric-only driving before switching over to hybrid mode.
The RAV4 is another Toyota staple, and though it is not known as a hybrid, it offers both a hybrid version and a 2021 PHEV version with the 2021 RAV4 Prime. This PHEV SUV offers up to 42 miles of electric-only driving before switching into hybrid mode.
