The return of the RAV4 EV
You know electric vehicles are being designed for the mainstream when the RAV4 EV is coming back. Toyota and Tesla Motors on Friday announced plans to make the electric RAV4. Toyota made the all-electric SUVs from 1997 to 2003. Since then, the RAV4 EV has been highly sought-after by electric-vehicle enthusiasts. It has a range of about 100 miles.
For the reborn RAV4 EV, Tesla will supply an electric powertrain. The companies plan to bring the car to the U.S. in 2012.
