Toyota is to add a plug-in hybrid version of the RAV4 SUV to its range in 2020, the Japanese brand has announced.

In a short statement, the brand confirms this will be "the most powerful RAV4 yet" and unsurprisingly promises greater electric driving range and stronger acceleration than the standard, non-plug-in RAV4 Hybrid.

A single image (above) of the car has been released, showing it won't differ much visually from the existing RAV4, either.

As with nearly all current Toyota models, it'll be built on the TNGA (Toyota New Generation Architecture) platform, which also underpins the Corolla, Corolla Saloon and Corolla Touring Sports estate.

Sales of the new RAV4 plug-in hybrid in the UK will commence in 2020, with further details of the car being revealed ahead of its arrival.
