The Electric RAV4 (EV) has a top speed of 78 MPH and an impressive driving range of 80 to 120 miles per charge. This is really incredible for an electric vehicle that is over 10 years old. Many users report just about the same performance numbers as when the vehicle was new, and they are still using the original batteries.
The EV Rav 4 has not been available since 2003, now in 2010 Toyota has announced a partnership with Tesla to resurrect the EV Rav 4. The new RAV 4 EV will use the Tesla electric motor and batteries and the Toyota RAV 4 platform and body. This new EV could be one of the first electric SUV's to hit the market.
