Toyota's higher-profile EV is the electrified version of its popular RAV 4 crossover. The first product of Toyota's $50 million investment in, and joint development deal with Tesla, the electric RAV will be juiced by a 660-lb. Tesla battery pack using a unique lithium-ion chemistry. Relatively quick for an EV, the RAV 4 promises a zero-to-60 mph time of 9.3 seconds and a range of 100 miles. Toyota anticipates "robust public interest" in the RAV 4 EV.
