Toyota’s All-Electric RAV4 Beats All Its Rivals on Range
However, Toyota have announced that their upcoming RAV4 EV, which is set to make its showroom debut in one month’s time, beats all but two of all current EVs on sale in the US, when it comes to range. According to toyota, their SUV will be able to travel as far as 113 miles (182 km), on a single charge, using an ‘extended’ charging option - the ‘standard’ range, without the extra juice crammed into the battery is 92 miles (147 km).
Toyota plans on selling around 2,600 units between 2012 and 2014, at a cost of $49,800. However, the RAV4 EV qualifies for a combined refund by both the state and federal government of $10,000.
Also, considering the fact that this is not the first time Toyota have a RAV4 EV in their showrooms (though it was only available for leases before, in the late 1990s), this should be easily the most reliable EV currently on sale today, as well as being the largest and most practical.
