Toyota has just unveiled its new electric crossover SUV, the RAV4 EV, at a show in Los Angeles, California.
The RAV4 EV is a plug-in electric vehicle with a range of 100 miles. Charging of the battery would take 6 hours with a 240V charger.
The “sport” version will go to 60mphs in 7 seconds and can reach a top speed of 100mphs.
The car is targeting customers who give high consideration to the respect of environment and appreciate high performance vehicles at the same time.
The RAV4 EV is part of the effort of Toyota to meet the requirements of the State of California, that states that automakers have to sell some “zero emission” vehicles to be allowed to continue their activity in California.
Hybrid electric vehicles are more and more popular among RamaDBK customers in Asia, and stirs interest in some African countries also. For the time being, the RAV4 EV is offered only in the American market but the sales team of RamaDBK hopes to get the opportunity to offer this model also in the coming few years to our customers all over the world.
