Toyota RAV4-EV Revealed: 100-Mile Range, $49,800

Toyota unveiled its new electric RAV4 at the 26th annual Electric Vehicle Symposium in Los Angeles including new price, power and range information.

Toyota said the all-electric RAV4 will be available later this year with a $49,800 MSRP. That price gets you a front-wheel drive RAV4 with an approximately 100 mile range. Toyota claims that the vehicle will fully charge in six hours using a 240V/40A charger, though that isn’t the typical at-home variety.

“It’s all about blending the best of two worlds,” said Bob Carter, vice president and general manager of Toyota. “The all-new RAV4 EV marries the efficiency of an EV with the versatility of a small SUV – in fact, it is the only all-electric SUV on the market.”

The new RAV4 has two driving modes: normal and sport. In normal mode 0-60 mph arrives in 8.6 seconds and is limited to 85 mph. In Sport mode, the dash happens a bit quicker at seven seconds, and the vehicle can achieve 100 mph. It features new battery technology from Tesla motors, and a 154-hp electric powertrain.

There’s also a new high-tech exterior that includes low-power LED headlights, which help with power consumption. When the car debuts later this year it’ll be available in just three exterior color options: “Blizzard White Pearl”, “Shoreline Blue Pearl” and “Classic Silver Metallic.”

    Sounds great, I’d upgrade to 55w HID headlights though. HID is nearly as efficient as LED and brighter for more visibility at night.
