Toyota Offering Incentives Up To $7,500 For RAV4 EV
December 28th, 2012 by Nicholas Brown
It seems as if every time a new EV is released, it trounces its predecessors.
The RAV4 EV accelerates from zero to sixty miles per hour in 7 seconds, can travel 103 miles per charge, and gets 76 miles per gallon equivalency.
SUVs normally cannot achieve such a combination of qualities. Especially not such high efficiency and decent performance.
Toyota is now offering the 2012 RAV4 EV for $49,800. However, it is also offering incentives such as $5,000 cash back and $2,500 in loyalty cash, which appears to be for long-time Toyota customers. Furthermore, state and federal incentives can bring the vehicle down another $10,000. All in all, you can get the vehicle for about $32,000.
The RAV4 EV is currently only available in California.
