Toyota RAV4 EV goes on sale in under two weeks, in California
The Toyota RAV4 EV all electric SUV developed in collaboration with Tesla Motors is coming to California in less than two weeks. The second generation RAV4 EV, which was first announced in July 2010 as a joint venture between Toyota and Tesla shortly after Toyota invested in Tesla, has long been expected to begin deliveries this year. It is an electric version of the regular Toyota RAV4 EV, and sports an all electric drive train developed by Tesla Motors.
At the official launch event in May 2012, Toyota promised that RAV4 EV deliveries would begin in late summer 2012. Today, Toyota announced deliveries will begin the week of September 24, 2012 through select California dealers, focusing on major metropolitan markets.
