Toyota Industries Corporation recently held a flag-off ceremony for the all-new fifth generation RAV4, which began production at its Nagakusa plant in Aichi Prefecture. The all-new RAV4 assembled at the Nagakusa plant will be exported first, before being offered for sale in Japan next year.
First unveiled at the 2018 New York Auto Show back in March, the fifth generation model is built on the company’s TNGA-K platform, the same platform that underpins the all-new Camry, Avalon, and Lexus ES.
For the North American market, the all-new RAV4 is available with two petrol engines and one hybrid powertrain. The line-up comprises of five petrol variants and four hybrid variants.
The new RAV4 will be released in Japan early next year, available at Corolla and Netz dealerships across the nation.
Closer to home, we reported back in 2017 that there are plans to introduce the all-new RAV4 in Indonesia as part of a region-wide campaign. Malaysia is most likely going to receive the all-new RAV4 at a later date.
