About This 2002 Toyota RAV4

This is an original Toyota RAV4-EV built by Toyota Motor Company. This is not a hybrid, conversion vehicle or early prototype. Vehicle is fully operational and meets original vehicle specifications.

This is a very rare vehicle as a limited number of vehicles were sold to the public.

This vehicle has been fully inspected (using a 95+ point inspection test) and refurbished by Blue Sky Motors, Inc. to be fully functioning and meeting original manufacturer’s specifications (except where noted). Blue Sky Motors’ 95+ point inspection tests include but are not limited to the repair and inspection of vehicle fluids, brakes, tires, heat / air conditioning systems. Many items have been fully replaced or repaired.

Blue Sky Motors is a licensed EV repair facility and stores parts and performs battery and/or vehicle repairs for several major auto manufacturers (Ford, GM and Toyota). Below lists the specifics of this vehicle:

Battery Type: NiMH (24 each 12-V Panasonic NiMH batteries for 288V nominal pack voltage). The Panasonic NiMH batteries are known for their long life with very little need for repairs (per independent tests by Southern California Edison, claiming 120,000 miles life).

Includes new refurbished NiMH battery pack from Battery M.D. Inc. (www.batterymd.com). Battery pack is very low mileage (an estimated 2,000 — 16,000 miles on the pack) and is in great shape (89Ah at C/3 rate).

Range: Vehicle demonstrates an estimated 80 miles range (combination of freeway and city driving — test driven by a non-EV driver). (Most customers get higher range than posted in our tests).

Drive System: DC, Permenant Magnet Motor, front wheel drive. Has regenerative braking.

Performance: An estimated 0-50 MPH in 12.9 seconds, top speed governed to 78 MPH, freeway compatible. See DOE report for more details. http://ev.inel.gov/pdf/fsev/eva/toyrav98.pdf

Comments / Disclosures:

Previously owned by a private entity

Very clean — Great Shape.

Includes car cover, snow chains and inductive charger

Includes new (low mileage) refurbished NiMH battery pack

Great traction battery pack performance and range

Air Conditioner working great (recently inspected and recharged as needed)

Special Limited Traction Battery Pack Warranty: If range drops more than 10 miles within 6 months, ship vehicle back to us (FOB Sacramento) and we will repair it at no charge (includes parts and labor for batteries only). Special warranty applies only to the repair of the vehicle traction battery pack batteries only and does not effect the rest of the vehicle or other components (see details below).

Things to know before purchasing one of these vehicles.

Does this include the off-board charger: Yes, this vehicle does include the inductive charger. The charger requires a 240Vac / 40A input.

How long will the traction battery last? At the time of sale, Blue Sky Motors repairs the on-board high voltage battery pack to achieve the highest range possible with the use of state-of-the-art battery cycling equipment. As noted above, these batteries have approximately 3 years of use and between 2,000 to 16,000 miles. Since their use, these batteries have been stored and maintained in a climate controlled area.

Therefore, even though they cronologically are 8 years old, use-wise they are more equivalent to 4 year old batteries (note: cool storage does not hurt the batteries). SCE claims that the Panasonic NiMH batteries can provide over 10 years / 120,000 miles life.

Are parts still available for this vehicle. Yes, contact your local Toyota RAV4-EV service station (located mainly in CA).

Expected driving range and performance: Nickel Metal Hydride battery packs can provide between 60 to 80 miles range (under normal driving conditions). Driving range is a function of many conditions including temperature and driving habits. Even though it may be able to drive further, for best life, Blue Sky motors recommends that daily commuting should be no more than 50 miles between charges for good reliability.
