List of Electric Cars - 04 - 2012 Toyota RAV4 EV
The 2012 Toyota Rav4 EV is in some ways a blast from the past, as the Japanese giant had previously offered an electric version of the compact SUV but withdrawn it from the market in 2003. The new Toyota RAV4 EV is being produced in partnership with the electric car specialists at Tesla, and it is currently available in limited numbers (roughly 2,600 will be produced). The RAV4 EV delivers a feisty 154 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque (when set to Sport mode), and it comes exclusively in front-wheel drive trim. 73 cubic feet of total cargo space make the Toyota a very practical electric vehicle, and its 113 mile battery range is impressive for its class.
