Toyota RAV4 EV

The Toyota RAV4 EV is the first of two electric vehicles that Toyota will bring to market in 2012. The RAV4 EV will be the only all-electric mass-produced SUV available in the United States. The electric RAV4 will have an estimated driving range of 120 miles and can be completely recharged in five to seven hours. Toyota’s second all-electric vehicle scheduled for release in 2012 is the Scion IQ EV. Unfortunately, the IQ will be marketed only to fleet and car sharing programs.
