Just a plug to search for an event in your area and register to attend, Drive Electric week is only one week away



"National Drive Electric Week, September 14-22, 2019, is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Are you considering going electric? Come talk to owners who have successfully done so. "

Thanks! Just registered. Missed it last year because I didn't realize this was all over the nation.

Saw a newer Toyota RAV4 EV today with J-1772 charging! Lady said it was built by Toyota in partnership with Tesla (using parts from Tesla's Roadster).

Yes. It was a CA only compliance car that ran from model years 2012 to 2014.


Unfortunately, the original press releases might be gone now. Here's one that works: https://pressroom.toyota.com/all-electric-toyota-rav4-ev-first-drive-aug2012/.

There's https://www.tesla.com/blog/tesla-notifies-sec-agreement-toyota-develop-electric-version-rav4 and search https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1318605/000119312513096241/d452995d10k.htm for Toyota.

They only built about 2600 of them. No, not parts from the Roadster. The bits are closest to that of the Model S. Drive unit, battery pack, gateway ECU, onboard charger and some other bits were Tesla supplied.

There's http://www.myrav4ev.com/forum/. I test drove them at least a few times, once in late 2012 at Alt Car Expo in Santa Monica. It'd be out under a month back then.

Some videos from Toyota on it at https://www.youtube.com/user/toyotaesqcomm/videos?query=rav4.

They had a big annual free EV event here in San Diego today with lots of test drives within a big parking lot area of a variety of current EV vehicles. Lots of the Tesla models, Chevy Bolt, Kia Niro, some luxury models from Jaguar, BMW, Mercedes. I wanted to compare a new Hyundai Kona EV but they didn't have one of those, so I test drove a Chevy Bolt (they had two 2019 Premiers there) and a Kia Niro EV to compare. I also test drove in a Tesla Model 3 as well and got to sit in front and back and check out the cargo areas too of all of them.
