“2013 Toyota EV joins forces with  

Toyota has stepped outside its joining forces in a unique with Tesla Motor in sharing technology rather exclusive development in house battery technology. This was inspired by Akio Toyoda, and CEO of Toyota Motor Corporation. The project resulting from alliance is the all-electric 2013 RAV4 EV claimed to be the world’s aerodynamic SUV. It’s quick, with a zero to mph time of seven seconds.

It is to achieve an average range of 100 from a full charge, and can be recharged in approximately six hours a 240V/40A charger.

According to Fay, Toyota division vice president and general “The RAV4 EV’s performance, dynamics and cargo are equal to or exceed the gas-powered V6. Arriving fully-equipped (there are no with an MSRP of $49,800 $810 for Destination and Handling), available combined federal and incentives of up to $10,000, the RAV4 EV is a versatile option for the EV enthusiast.”

Development from announcement to took a mere twenty-two when the vehicle was revealed at Vehicle Symposium 26 in May of this To effectively manage and adhere to a compressed timetable, Toyota and engineers devised the eFAST (early field and suitability a totally new protocol put in place for the RAV4 EV to ensure confirmation and of the vehicle.

The RAV4 EV combines a designed and produced battery and powertrain with Toyota’s popular SUV model. The joint focused on optimizing the consumer from remote charging to interior comfort and convenience, with futuristic interactive by combining the practical features of an SUV aerodynamic styling and an electric for the longest estimated driving rating of any non-luxury EV.

The drag is the lowest of any SUV in the world at 0.30 Cd, and it features a low center of gravity its centered, under-floor mounted pack.

Motive force is generated by an AC motor mounted up front, the front wheels with open-differential trans-axle gear of 9.73 with two drive Normal and Sport. Power from a Lithium Ion battery (41.8 kWh) weighing in at over 800 pounds, with 129 kW max output / 386V max voltage produces ZEV emissions. Horsepower is at 154 (115Kw) maximum, with feet of torque rated at 218 in mode and 273 in Sport mode.

The Toyota RAV4 EV travels 0-60 mph in 7.0 seconds in Sport and has a top track speed of 100 mph. The model delivers a 0-60 mph of 8.6 seconds with a maximum top end of 85 There are two charge modes: and Extended.

In the Standard mode, the charges up to 35 kWh, with an range rating of 92 miles. The charge mode allows to the full capacity of 41.8 with an anticipated range of 113

EV range optimization may be controlled the selection of specific operational for the climate control system; ECO LO; and ECO HI, with the latter achieving the efficient operation.  A unique designed cooperative regenerative system serves to minimize the kinetic energy loss slowing or stopping, increasing the by up to 20 percent. At a 50% state of charge, the can sit without charging for approximately one with no permanent loss of Should the battery pack depleted, its 12-volt battery allow the vehicle to turn on and to neutral.

A 12A charging cable is provided for when the recommended 240V 2 charging is not available.

Safety of the RAV4 EV include: Enhanced Stability Control; Traction ABS; EBD; Brake and Smart Stop Technology, with several redundant that automatically protect the unintentional discharge of energy. The pack is also shielded possible impact.

In terms of design execution, the RAV4 EV a similar form, but showcases styling cues to set it apart the gas-powered RAV4, such as LED low beam projector headlights halogen high beam A manual leveling system the driver to redirect the headlights to for varying loads. Five LEDs make up the driving which dim to parking lights.

Rear combination lights are accented by a unique smoke-tinted outer There are also new exterior on the front, rear, and front panel in Toyota’s signature blue”. Three exterior are available: Blizzard Pearl; Blue Pearl; and Classic metallic.

Fleet units be available in Super White.

No space is lost due to EV componentry. The capacitive touch screen is the point of the cabin, featured on the 8-inch navigation screen and control panel. The screen is with responsive touch and a graphic display, with capability for navigation, Entune and EV phone applications.

In addition, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, streaming audio and a USB port iPod connectivity. The multi-information display can scroll through six screens providing driver information. The interior features a “Neutron” fabric, woven a subtle sheen and blue on the seats and door trim.

SUMMARY: Driving the 2013 EV is pretty much like a conventional auto, except for the of operation (no exhaust note or for that matter) and the incredible of torque at the start. By punching the mode button on the dash, possible with little to light up the front tires off the but that’s not the real mission of the EV. Obviously, one has to pay attention to the range planning long distance or even a commute, noting locations.

Acceleration is phenomenal a standing start or when onto a freeway via a ramp. performance cars beware, the EV is capable of blowing off your when taking off from a The steering felt a little initially, but was actually very and overall, the handling bordered on with the ride quality quite comfortable.

Visibility is from within, and the folding seat backs add to versatility and

Toyota is planning on building units over a three period, and the RAV4 EV will only be available in California, It is expected to qualify for a $2,500 through the Clean Vehicle Program in California and is also for a $7,500 Federal Tax Credit. In it will qualify for the California Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) white sticker program. will expand to other at a later date.

The RAV4 EV will be built at Motor Manufacturing Canada, in Woodstock, Ontario.
