The feat was made possible through the utilization of Electreon's wireless electric road technology, which charges the vehicle while it is in motion.

The Toyota RAV4 Prime has set a new record by driving over 1,200 miles in electric mode without the need to stop and recharge.

Electreon's 200-meter demo track served as the testing ground, featuring a wireless charger installed beneath 25% of the road surface. This wireless charging platform not only provides "endless range" for any EV but also supports various types of vehicles, from compact cars to large trucks.

The record-setting journey involved a team of 56 drivers, including renowned Israeli racing driver Bar Baruch. Their accomplishment establishes a new world record for the longest time and distance covered by a passenger EV. Although the Toyota RAV4 Prime is a plug-in hybrid model, its gasoline engine never came into operation during the entire 1,200-mile drive, thanks to the consistently charged battery.

Traditionally, all-electric vehicles offer a range of 100 to 400 miles on a single charge, while plug-in hybrids can typically travel at speeds of 15 to 50 mph on battery power before transitioning to the combustion engine. The Toyota RAV4 Prime, with its EPA-estimated electric-only range of 42 miles, has demonstrated that it is possible to achieve remarkable distances solely on electric power.
