Toyota is rolling out its 4R 75E next month, the latest addition to the company’s lineup of plug-in hybrids.
Toyota says the plug-ins will be available in all-wheel drive models starting in 2020.
The new models will have an all-new front-wheel-drive architecture that will include electric powertrains, an allwheel drive-only rear-wheel layout and a rear-drive-only design.
The four-cylinder engine, which makes up most of the new model’s powertrain, will be the first Toyota has used in an allterraplane.
The company says the 4R is expected to achieve a top speed of 155 mph (280 km/h) and top speed over 170 mph (250 km/hr) on all-terraplanes.
It will also feature a new 5.0-liter four-cam V8 that will deliver 375 horsepower (220 kW) and 425 pound-feet (190 Nm).
The four cylinder’s output will be significantly reduced compared to the 6.2-liter V8 in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
The 4R will also offer an allnew five-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Toyota will also introduce a new rear-mounted rear axle.
It promises a torque-to-weight ratio of 7.4:1 and an electric-assist drive system that can achieve a 0-60 mph (62 km/hour) time of 2.5 seconds and a top acceleration of 112 mph (205 km/hd).
Toyota is expected not to release exact prices, but it is expected the four-wheel drives will cost about $20,000 (AU$25,200).
The 4L has been a success for Toyota, and the company plans to add a second 4L in 2020, which will be powered by a 1.5-liter gasoline engine.
The fourth-generation 4L is expected be the companys first fully electric car and will feature an electric powertrain.
The next-generation four-door model will have a front-mounted electric motor and an allelectric drivetrain, but its price tag is yet to be announced.
