2001 Toyota RAV4 EV | RAV4e electric vehicle

Sold
SOLD

Very rare 2002 Toyota RAV4 EV (aka RAV4e / RAV-4 EV) first generation. One of the more successful early electric vehicles. This particular example is from late in the production and has just 23k miles on the odometer. The NiMH battery packs are known for being long-lived however has been parked for a few years. Sure fire future-collectible and great candidate for upgrade.

Happy to talk about fellow owners in California so give Adam a call at 206.419.9295


From Wikipedia ,,, The first fleet version of the RAV4 EV became available on a limited basis in 1997. In 2001 it was possible for businesses, cities or utilities to lease one or two of these cars. Toyota then actually sold or leased 328 RAV4 EVs to the general public in 2003, at which time the program was terminated despite waiting lists of prospective customers.

The RAV4 EV closely resembles the regular internal combustion engine (ICE) version – without a tailpipe – and has a governed top speed of 78 mph (~126 km/h) with an EPA rated range of 95 mi (153 km).[12] The 95 amp-hour NiMH battery pack has a capacity of 27 kWh, charges inductively and has proven to be very durable. Some RAV4 EVs have been driven more than 150,000 miles (240,000 km) using the original battery pack. It was also one of the few vehicles with a single speed gearbox when introduced to the market.

Beyond the unusual power train (batteries, controller and motor), the remaining systems in the RAV4 EV are comparable to the gasoline-powered RAV4. The power brakes, power steering, tire wear and suspension components are similar except that they use electric power sources. The power brakes use an electric pump to provide vacuum instead of deriving vacuum from the engine manifold. The power steering use an electric motor instead of mechanical energy delivered by fan belts.
