2014 Toyota RAV4

In recent years, the Toyota RAV4 has been transformed from a bland and anemic compact SUV into sporty, capable and fun-to-drive crossover. It has bulked up and grown long. Although not exactly the style or loaded with personality, the RAV4 is a nice looking and well proportioned.

More importantly, in the context of electric vehicles, the RAV4 EV vehicle variant is the only all-electric crossover is available anywhere in the United States-even if only for sale in Los Angeles Area, Orange County, Sacramento, San Diego, Central California city select and the San Francisco Bay Area.

As the only battery-powered SUV in the market-that is, until much more expensive Tesla Model X suddenly RAV4 EV middle-of-the-road look will serve well (and certainly not alienate) car buyers looking for a competent utility vehicle that runs purely on electrons.

All-electric RAV4 receives EPA rated range of 103 miles-far below what the owners had in real world conditions. EPA pegged efficiency at 78 city miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe); 74 MPGe highway; and a combined 76 MPGe.

In one of our road tests, after 48 km on the road, the dashboard shows an estimated 98 miles of range remaining. In other words, after traveling nearly 50 miles, there are nearly 100 miles of power remaining in the battery is more than that available from Nissan LEAF after a full charge. That’s because the battery is made ​​in the RAV4 EV Tesla has a capacity of 41.8 kilowatt hours, while the LEAF is 24 kilowatt hours.

On another day, when holding the use Sport mode and do not use the air conditioner, we easily managed nearly 130 miles of range on a single charge. Even when stepping on the gas pedal as hard as we like, screeching away from the red light, the RAV4 EV delivers more than 100 miles of range-achievement that few other electric cars can reach.

If you have a 240-volt home charging station (and electricity services) given at 30 amps or less, the ability will not help you. But if you are able to provide 40 amps of juice, you should be able to add about 30 to 35 miles of range in one-hour recharging than about 20 to 25 miles. That could be useful.

The potential ability to charge faster to give Toyota engineers justification for not installing a DC quick-charge port. So do not expect to use one of the growing number of public fast chargers. From our prospective, fast charger is rarely used anyway, so this is not a lot of casualties, especially considering the large 41.8 kWh battery that provides 125-plus miles of range.
