sold in the United States alone
is currently sitting pretty as the undeniable world leader in gas/electric vehicles
, and the 2010 Prius
looks ready to cement that image even further. It's no secret that the Japanese automaker has big plans in store for its hybrid
technology – it's repeatedly stated that it plans to offer hybrid versions of every model it makes
. Therefore, news that the automaker is working on a hybrid RAV4
shouldn't come as a surprise.
Speaking to media at the Shanghai Motor Show
, Koei Saga, Toyota managing officer of hybrid system development, has suggested that a RAV4 Hybrid
should be offered in China "as soon as possible," and it seems likely that the model would make it into other large markets like the United States as well.
