Toyota has finally made official what has been rumored all the summer: the Toyota RAV4 EV concept will make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 17th and the company has released the first teaser images of the car.
It's now also official that the electric RAV4 EV has been developed with the aid of Tesla Motors and the concept has the body of a SUV and the same power train as Tesla. By working together Tesla benefits in learning from Toyota's manufacturing experience, while Toyota aims learning from Tesla's business and EV technology capabilities.
The production version of the new Japanese electric concept is set to hit the U.S. market in 2012, though no price list has been made available yet. The full specs list is set to be announced at the LA auto show.
RAV4 EV aims to exemplify Toyota's efforts into cutting CO2 emissions and reducing the use of fossil fuels through developing more efficient technologies.
