The electric SUV also received an EPA-rated range of 103 miles and will be heading to California dealerships starting on September 24th. The RAV4 EV will be the first mainstream electric SUV offered on the market, so there isn’t a whole lot to compare it to. But for comparison’s sake, the Nissan Leaf compact is rated at 106-MPGe city, 92-MPGe highway with a 73-mile range.
The RAV4 EV will start at $49,800 before a $2,500 California rebate and a $7,500 federal tax credit. It can also be leased for $599 a month for 36 months, with a $3,499 down payment.
