The RAV4 hybrid has a tendency to oversteer during the maneuver. It only passed the test at speeds comparable to many BoF trucks. VSC did not intervene to recover the oversteer, so it is a software problem instead of a chassis problem. For reference the C-HR passed the Moose test at 75 km/h.

OMG! The RAV4 Prime is the modern day reincarnation of the RAV4 V6 with 302 hp and a 0-60 of 5.8 s...

Hopefully this will end up in the next-gen NX to help it stand out from its competitors. Hopefully this ends up in the Camry/ES/Avalon too (fingers crossed)

EDIT: Here's the official press release:

Rav4 Prime goes on sale in US and Japan next summer. Europe gets it later in 2020. Same 2.5l petrol engine as in hybrid but new highcapacity li-ion battery. It has class leading 302hp and 0-96kmh 5.8s. It has same interior space as hybrid and E four system. EPA range is 62km so WLTP will be near 100km.

do we know about charging and size of the battery? Is 90 MPGe competitive?

If you don't have anywhere to plug it in, does it just function like a normal hybrid? Still the same performance specs, etc?

Yes, it will be as a normal hybrid, in fact it has a bigger battery so the regenerative braking with the battery can give you much more milage than the normal hybrid
