Pros

Fully electric powertrain; SUV practicality; 100-plus mile range


Model Highlights

The RAV4 EV is an all-electric vehicle. The chassis is the same as the V6-powered RAV4, but where the engine would be found, an electric motor and 129kW lithium-ion battery pack provided by electric-vehicle innovator Tesla resides. The battery pack and electric motor make as much as 154 horsepower, according to Toyota.

The RAV4 EV can be charged via conventional 120V household current or an optional 240 (Level 2) charge, which can be accomplished in 6 hours.

In most other ways, the RAV4 EV is the same as its conventional-powered counterpart. It features the same double-wishbone suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes, power-folding mirrors and power windows and locks. It comes as front-wheel drive only.

The in-dash entertainment is an advanced navigation system with Entune that includes an 8-inch touch-screen and a back-up camera. It also provides a wealth of vehicle information such as energy monitor, charge status and a range map. Various tools are included to help the driver maximize driving range: the system can display average power consumption, CO2 output vs. a conventional gasoline vehicle and an Eco coach "grades" the driver's behavior as it pertains to eco-sensitive driving habits.

Other standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, push-button start, Smart Key remote keyless entry, leather-trimmed steering wheel and dual-zone climate control. Safety features include dual front airbags, side-impact airbags and vehicle proximity notification.

The RAV4 EV's battery is warranted for 8 years or 100,000 miles.


Model News

A new Tesla-supplied powertrain and upgraded aerodynamics further maximize the RAV4's range for 2012. Otherwise, the 2012 RAV4 EV is much the same as the current gasoline-powered version.


Value Writeup

The RAV4 is a highly rated and practical SUV already. With the all-electric powertrain, it has green credibility as well. Toyota claims an over-100 mile range and that no cargo space was lost in the RAV4's conversion to all-electric drive. This makes the RAV4 EV unique among electric vehicles in that it provides the practicality of an SUV with an all-electric powertrain.

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2006-2012 RAV4 vehicles manufactured July 28, 2005, to December 19, 2012, and 2012-2014 RAV4 EV vehicles manufactured July 24, 2012, to August 29, 2014. In the event of a frontal collision, the rear seat belts for the outboard seats may be cut by the seat cushion frame.

Consequence
A cut seat belt may not properly restrain the seat occupant, increasing their risk of injury in a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will install a protector over both rear seat cushion frames, free of charge. Parts for the remedy are not currently available. Owners were sent interim notification letters on March 16, 2016. A second notice will be mailed when parts are available. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is G0F.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 RAV4 vehicles manufactured October 27, 2008, to December 19, 2012 and 2012-2014 RAV4 EV vehicles manufactured July 24, 2012, to August 29, 2014. In the affected vehicles, water may drip onto the joint that connects the wiper linkage to the wiper motor.

Consequence
Over time, the dripping water may cause corrosion and wear at the joint, potentially resulting in the separation of the wiper linkage. Once this occurs, the wipers would not function, reducing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the water diverter channel. In addition, a new wiper linkage with a wiper motor crank arm will be installed. The wiper linkage will have a protective cover over the wiper linkage joint to minimize water splash and a retainer ring to prevent the wiper arm from separating from the wiper motor. The recall is expected to begin by November 16, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota's customer service number at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Toyota Motor Engineering & manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Rav4 EV vehicles manufactured July 24, 2012, to August 29, 2014. Due to a software issue within a component of the Electric Vehicle Traction Motor Assembly, the electric propulsion motor may shift to "neutral" resulting in a possible loss of drive power.

Consequence
A loss of drive power may increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners beginning in April 2015. The remedy is still under development, but will be provided free of charge. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
