Toyota are known to produce a lot of Hybrid Vehicles. Many may not be aware that Toyota also delved briefly into the Electric Vehicle market with an Electric version of the Toyota RAV4. Two generations of the EV model were sold in California, and to fleets elsewhere in the USA, with a gap of almost ten years between them.

First Generation

Produced between 1997–2003. Not really popular.





Second Generation

Model was produced between 2012-2014 before production stopped. Still very much in the market and can be purchased. The electric powertrain of the second generation Toyota RAV4 EV was made by Tesla and was part of the partnership that existed between Toyota and Tesla at that time. It also boasts of great range of about 113 miles (180Km) on full charge. Toyota would later sell all of its stock in Tesla.
