2013 toyota rav4

  1. 1. 2013 Toyota RAV4Toyota unveiled its new 2013 RAV4 EV on the twenty sixth annual Electric Car Symposium right here andstated the automotive will probably be priced from $50,610 when it goes on sale in late summer seasonin four California markets. The base sticker includes an $810 delivery charge.The RAV4 EV, which uses a 115kW electric drive system and battery pack equipped by Tesla Motors, canbe sold initially in Sacramento, the San Francisco Bay Space, Los Angeles/Orange County and San Diego,Toyota said. The automaker plans to sell about 2,600 RAV4 EVs over the next three years.The newest version of the RAV4 EV has a driving vary between charges of round a hundred miles andtakes about six hours to recharge on a 240V/40A charger.Toyota said the RAV4 EVs driving performance, dynamics and cargo capacity are equal to or exceed thatof the gasoline-powered RAV4 V6. Toyota stated the front-wheel-drive RAV4 EV can speed up from zeroto 60 in 7.zero seconds and has a prime speed of 100 mph.The electrical model of the RAV4 gets a brand new front bumper, grille, mirrors and rear spoiler, with asmoother underbody to maximize airflow. The RAV4 EV additionally features LED projector headlamps,daytime running lights and rear combination lights. Toyota mentioned the automotive shall be suppliedin three exterior colors - Blizzard White Pearl, Shoreline Blue Pearl and Traditional Silver Metallic.
  2. 2. Among the interior highlights are a Neutron material with blue accents for the seat inserts and doortrim, and an eight-inch capacitive touchscreen that shows navigation, telematics and EV driveinformation.The RAV EV is being assembled at Toyotas plant in Woodstock, Ontario.These would be the most unsatisfying spy photos we have posted all yr, as a result of we never receiveda take a look at the front of this camouflaged crossover SUV. Theres little doubt it is the redesigned2013 Toyota RAV4, though -- based on its shape and general proportions, and given that we have beenproper close to Toyotas North American headquarters in Torrance, California. Sadly, we had been on agood schedule and could not deviate from our supposed left turn, because the RAV4 mule turned right.In these pictures, though, you possibly can see that Toyota has lastly nixed the RAVs signature aspect-hinged tailgate and rear-mounted spare tire in favor of a lighter, possibly energy-operated overheadliftgate and presumably a floor/undercarriage-mounted spare. Rear suspension stays independent... nosurprise there.It is attention-grabbing to speculate what else Toyota has planned for the fourth-gen RAV4. Adoption ofthe six-velocity automatic transmission throughout the board is a certainty, we would say, instead ofright nows four- and five-velocity automatics. The 2.5-liter engine should proceed on with variousupgrades, however we wouldnt be shocked to see Toyota reduce the 3.5-liter V6 fully -- good as it is --for reasons of gasoline economic system and cost. Then again, even with the present 5-pacecomputerized, the V6 returns 26 mpg on the highway, so maybe there isnt any motive to give up on theconcept of a quick RAV4 just yet.Along with that, were anticipating to see the deletion of the third-row seat option (that just aboutnobody buys for the current mannequin) and the arrival of Entune and a camera system on par withwhat Ford and Honda are providing within the Escape and CR-V. Well know extra when the 2013 RAV4makes its probable debut at the 2012 L.A. Auto Show.The RAV4 EV is an all-electric version of Toyotas compact RAV4 crossover with a Tesla-sourced batteryand powertrain. It is available only in California, and owes its existence largely to a mandate requiring15.4 percent of new automobiles sold in the Golden State 2025 must be plug-ins, electrics or fuel cellvehicles by 2025.Aside from a few minor styling tweaks, from the outside the RAV4 EV would seem to be a dead ringerfor the gas-powered ‘ ute. The differences become apparent when one gets inside and twists the key -instead of firing up an internal combustion engine, this action turns on a Tesla-designed 115kW electricdrive system.This motor produces 154 horsepower and a strong 273 lb-ft of torque, good for a zero-to-60 mph sprintof just seven seconds in performance-oriented Sport mode. The default drive setting, Normal mode, isoptimized to maximize driving range and limits torque to 218 lb-ft. This adds 1.6 seconds to the zero-to-60 mph sprint.
  3. 3. When the time comes to recharge, there are two options. Standard mode charges to 35 kWh for anestimated 92 mile range, while Extended mode charges to 41.8 kWh for 113 miles. Toyota claims thatStandard mode will prolong the charging life of the lithium-ion battery, which is covered by a warrantyof eight years or 100,000 miles. Charging takes about six hours with a 240v charging station that adds$1,590 (plus installation) to the botton line; an 120V emergency charger is included as standard but thisunit takes 44 hours to fully charge the vehicle.Notably, the batteries dont impinge on cargo space thanks to their placement low and to the center ofthe vehicle. That means that 36.4 cubic inches are available behind the rear seats, while a full 73 cubescan be had with the rear seats folded.Exterior revisions compared to the gas-powered RAV4 include a revised front bumper, grill, side mirrorsand rear spoiler in addition to a special underbody design that maximizes air flow around the vehicle.These changes help cut drag to 0.30 Cd, making it the most aerodynamic crossover in the world.Headlights, taillights and daytime running lights are all upgraded to LED units.The interior benefits from blue-accented "Neutron" fabric on the seat inserts and door trim as well as aneight-inch capacitive touch screen that displays navigation, telematics and battery charge info. Otherchanges include a unique instrument panel and a shifter borrowed from the Prius hybrid. In nearly allother respects the cabin is standard RAV4 fare, meaning it has intuitive controls and an uncluttereddesign, though the materials might disappoint some buyers given the EVs price point.
  4. 4. Occupant SafetyStandard safety features include dual front, front side and full-length side-curtain airbags in addition totraction control systems.Key CompetitorsThe RAV4 EV is currently the only pure electric crossover on the market. If putting an electric vehicle inyour driveway is important, EVs like the Nissan Leaf sedan and the Ford Focus Electric are worthconsidering. If youre just looking for a vehicle with a spacious interior and low energy costs, check outFord C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid and the Toyota Prius V.The brand new 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV prices start at $50,610.
