This is the impressive and most powerful Toyota RAV4 contract hire model yet built and it's a plug-in hybrid.
Deliveries start in April, and the order books have opened now for what is one of the world best-selling SUVs.
It's also an attractive proposition for company car drivers or for those who are looking for a great car for a personal contract hire deal.
That's because the new RAV4 will offer fuel consumption of 282mpg, the best in the segment, and emissions of just 22g/km.
That means its Benefit-in-Kind rating (BiK) when leasing the Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid will be very low at just 6% for a 40% taxpayer.
Also, the battery offers an all-electric range of 61 miles at speeds of up to 84mph.
There are four driving modes to suit the driver’s preferences and in ‘Auto EV’ mode, the RAV4 will bring the 2.5-litre petrol engine into play when necessary.
The recharging time for the battery pack is 2.5 hours using a wallbox charging unit.
There's also a smartphone app, Toyota MyT, that enables drivers to monitor and schedule battery charging remotely - a great idea for those with cheap electricity supply deals.
Also, the RAV4 app can be used to cool or warm cabin before the driver sets off.
This is the fifth-generation of the Toyota RAV4 car leasing range which was first unveiled in 2018.
The car has a low centre of gravity which is boosted by the battery pack’s location beneath the cabin floor.
The new vehicle also features AWD-i - an intelligent all-wheel drive system.
There are just two specifications for the RAV4 plug-in, they are Dynamic and Dynamic Premium.
The new car is distinctive from the combustion engine versions with a dark grille frame and mesh as well as a dark-finish front.
There are also 19-inch double-spoke alloy wheels for the plug-in hybrid and a metallic lower front bumper moulding.
Equipment for the contract hire RAV4 Dynamic plug-in model includes a 9-inch multimedia display, dual-zone air-conditioning, smartphone compatibility, wireless phone charging and a powered tailgate.
The front and rear seats are heated and the RAV4 comes with a range of driver safety assistance systems.
The Dynamic Premium model has a head-up display, black leather seat upholstery, a Skyview panoramic roof that opens, power adjustable front seats and a premium sound system.
Prices start at £47,395 for the Toyota RAV4 Dynamic model, and £50,895 for the Dynamic Premium - so it is worth checking out the potential car leasing deals for the RAV4.
