Toyota has announced plans to introduce the 2013 RAV4 EV at the 26th International Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS26) on May 7th.

While the company declined to give additional information, they previewed a pre-production prototype almost two years ago. It was jointly developed with Tesla Motors - as part of a $50 million dollar agreement to collaborate on EV technology - and featured a lithium metal oxide battery as well as a Tesla-sourced electric motor. Detailed specifications weren't released, but Toyota said the prototype only weighed 220 pounds (100 kg) more than the RAV4 V6 and could travel up to 100 miles (161 km) on a single charge.

Still only 160 km on a single charge, and how long will that take...? C'mon electricity and battery tech, hurry up and do something at least close to the convenience levels of draining fossil fuels for transport.. Thought that with Tesla's help that this car might have got some decent range about it... :(

Are these recycled from 20 years ago? Can we see GM EV1 reborn?
