About the Toyota RAV4 EV
It is Los Angeles, during the twenty-sixth Symposium Electric Vehicle, Toyota presented its RAV4 EV, developed in partnership with Tesla. This is the first all-electric model marketed by the Japanese giant. California has been a pioneer in the field of environmentally friendly vehicles. It is therefore logical that Toyota has chosen Los Angeles to present the RAV4 EV, a prototype of which had already been unveiled at Los Angeles in late 2010. Moreover, it is this state of the American West that begin marketing the electric version of the famous Japanese SUV. At launch this summer, four California dealers will be entitled to market the first all-electric model of Toyota, and costs $ 49,800.Far advanced in the field of hybrid, Toyota did not want to miss the train of the electric car. But it took more than fifteen years for the experience of the first electric RAV4 (1996) materializes in series. Timidly, yet, given the underdeveloped network for this specific model. But now the car is there, available in three colors (pearl white, metallic gray or blue). And it even has a sales target, albeit modest, 2,600 units sold during his three-year career. For Toyota, it is primarily targeting the pioneers, even those who had fallen for a first generation Prius.For the design of its RAV4 EV, Toyota relied on Tesla. Lithium-ion batteries and engine (154 hp) come into effect of U.S. start-up. Unsurprisingly, autonomy is comparable to virtually all electric vehicles on the market, or 160 km. Charging is it about six hours, the charger 240 V recommended by Toyota. The acceleration from 0 to 60 MPH varies driving mode selected: 8.6 seconds in normal mode and 7.0 seconds in Sport mode. Is comparable to those of the performance RAV4 V6.Externally, the RAV4 EV works without surprise in the footsteps of the 2010 prototype. It features a smooth shell and allowing him to claim the lowest of all SUV Cx, with a value of 0.30.
Cooperation between hybrid leader Toyota and the electric car specialist Tesla is a pragmatic, but targeted solution: While Toyota practically breaks new ground in the all-electric vehicles, Tesla has so far offer only a high-priced sports car with the alternative drive concept – in the SUV Mother Country USA is a real shortcoming. Unlike the Tesla Roadster and the not yet production-ready full-size electric car Tesla Model S is the Toyota RAV4 EV built very conventional about it.

Body and interior are similar to the standard version with petrol engine. The grille was covered, the headlights light up in normal operation with LED technology, as well as daytime running lights and tail lights, only the beam headlight are still equipped with conventional halogen lamps.
Also in the interior, the conversions are sparse. Only the central display in which a colored monitor replaces the individual instruments, differs from the normal series RAV. Much futuristic, the new Toyota RAV4 EV therefore not optically to offer.

In art, however, complete rethink is called for. A lithium-ion battery pack with a 41.8 kWh power serves as an energy store. The drive is provided by an electric motor, which has muster 115 kilowatts. The performance of the Toyota RAV4 EV are handsome: a maximum of about 100 miles of range are promised. This, however, only in the normal energy-saving mode. In this the Toyota RAV4 EV accelerates in 8.6 seconds from 0-60 MPH and reaches a top speed of 85 MPH – more than adequate for the motherland of speed limits. However, the driver selects the Sport mode, the Toyota RAV4 EV is really perk: 0-60 MPH in seven seconds, although with such power, the range is expected to drop dramatically.

Eight years warranty on the battery
Six hours does it take to fully charge the batteries again the Toyota RAV4 EV. For this, however, a special charging station with 240 Volt/40 amp has to be retrofitted – in the U.S. the 120V household power supply is designed considerably weaker than in Europe. About a provision in the U.S. household outlets the charge lasts longer.

Self-confidence, Toyota is in terms of battery life: The manufacturer does eight years and a maximum of 160,000 km full warranty on the energy storage of the Toyota RAV4 EV. The downside for European buyers: incipient Canadian production of the Toyota RAV4 EV is only for North America. 2,600 units Toyota wants to sell in the next three years, sales in California will start in late summer. The advertised price of lush 49,800 U.S. dollars to American customers sweetened by a sales promotion program of the government – the purchase of an electric car the buyer is an environmental premium of $ 7,500 refunded.

In the twilight of his career, SUV RAV4 allows electric declination powered by a Tesla original block, but will be available only in California. Funny strategy that the Japanese giant, a pioneer of the hybrid. While its mid-range SUVs prepares to pass the baton to a future generation by the end of the year, an exotic electric declination made its appearance in the range. Reserved for only the California market, the craft, powered by a Tesla original block should be limited to 3,600 units in three years production. Would he only aim to clear the segment for future connected variant of its successor?
At first glance, the changes appear contained. Dress U.S. RAV4, only review at the ends to improve aerodynamics, is instantly recognizable. Snout more streamlined, spoilers and ailerons discreetly arranged on the tailgate and reduce turbulence: the dress is not transformed. Under the hood, the machine actually conceals an electrical block and batteries developed in the workshops of Tesla, the Californian specialist electrical vehicles sports, which is particularly distinguished by its Roadster and Model S sedan That fans not excited too quickly: the placid RAV4 EV, which transmits full 156 horsepower to the front wheels.
