Terrible Toyota RAV4 EV

Written by Ken Green Burridge on 19 2013

Surprising news to is that the 2013 Toyota EVs is available now though most in the world don t know it since doesn t advertise at all for their pure electric vehicle in California where it is mostly

The Toyota RAV4 EV 2013 is to those electric car fans look really hard and it is the electric version of the popular RAV4 SUV. The 2013 is based on 2012 model. Toyota only plans to 2600 units during a year period and will production at the end of 2014 as that is the minimum that allows to comply with California’s ZEV Emission Vehicle) mandate, requires a certain percentage of vehicles sold in California to be and green.

This allows Toyota to selling about ten times fossil fuel burning which California won t let them do selling their quota of or they get fined $5,000 for ZEV vehicle that they to produce.

Buyer Beware be the motto of those searching for electric SUV so as not to confuse current of the Toyota RAV4 EV with the generation that are still on the First generation Toyota EVs were produced between and incidentally sell for nearly the price as the new model, which volumes about EV resale and demand. In fact more a 1/3 of those EV SUVs are still along just fine and using their original EV which should help those that think EV are only good for a few years.

This new generation of the Toyota EV uses a Tesla Motors S drive train and batteries, but the SUV costs less than s Model S luxury sedan. The battery pack is liquid and is twice as large as most of the Nissan LEAF 24-kwh, Focus Electric 23-kwh and the Fit EV 20-kwh.

It might seem a crazy that Toyota has NOT advertising that the electric of their popular RAV4 SUV is Even a little more as it has even been reported on electric car forums (www.myrav4ev.com) potential buyers have dealer salesman even to steer them away even buying the RAV4 EV!

This may seem illogical one understands that Toyota unlike most corporations) most everything based on It is well documented by films as Who Killed the Electric Car etc that EVs require far less ongoing service and consumable parts to vehicles powered by fossil Those ongoing costs for the owner add more profit to s bottom line by selling

The service departments of Toyota s of dealerships also drool a little bit with every ICE vehicle sold.

Toyota has invested billions of dollars in hybrid drive train and to realize the largest possible on that investment. Promoting EVs not make maximize that What makes more for Toyota shareholders is to have the number of people migrate to cars, while they develop hydrogen power.

Totota is really only the RAV4 EV for the California market and wishes to sell the bare number of units needed to their ZEV credit requirements, they can make by also a combination of plug-in hybrids and fuel cell vehicles.
