Model Highlights

The Toyota RAV4 EV is offered in one front-wheel drive trim. It is essentially the same body as is found on the conventionally powered RAV4. The EV is distinguished by some smoothed out curves at the front and a unique grille designed to both identify the RAV4 as an electric vehicle but to provide as slippery a front-end as is possible to maximize the battery's efficiency.

This battery is a 129kW lithium-ion battery. As part of a powertrain licensed from electric car pioneer Tesla, this battery is capable of putting out enough power to make 154 horsepower and 218 lb-feet of torque at the wheels, providing a very "normal" driving profile.

The EPA rates the RAV4 EV can go up to 103 miles on a single charge. A selectable "Sport" mode makes for squeezing the most out of the electric powertrain for spirited driving, but will no-doubt reduce that range estimate. Toyota claims the RAV4 has more cargo space than any other electric vehicle.

The RAV4 EV also benefits from many of the same features that make the conventionally powered RAV4 so attractive: MacPherson struts in front and a double-wishbone rear suspension as well as 4-wheel disc brakes. Outside, there are 17-inch alloy wheels and a rear wiper and spoiler, energy-saving LED headlights, tail lights and daytime running lights.

Inside the RAV4 EV comes with standard dual-zone climate control, navigation, Toyota's Entune touchscreen-based information and vehicle systems interface, a 60/40-split rear seat, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, digital instruments, Smart Key proximity entry as well as power windows and locks.

Safety features include a total of 6 airbags, as well as anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist.

Options are limited to a lengthy list of dealer-installed accessories.

Model News

The 2014 RAV4 is essentially unchanged from the 2013 model.

Value Writeup

The RAV4 EV is one of the very few electric-drive SUVs available. Its powertrain, on license from Tesla, endows it with an estimated 100-mile range, which is on par with other similarly priced electric vehicles. What sets the RAV4 EV apart is that its the only one with an SUV body --that means cargo and people carrying flexibility. Toyota claims it is the most cargo space of any electric vehicle available now.

Mfg's Report Date
MAR 12, 2015


Potential Number of Units Affected

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.

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

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will update the Electric Vehicle Traction Motor Assembly software, free of charge. The recall began on September 10, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.

Dates of Manufacture
JUL 23, 2012 to AUG 28, 2014


Mfg's Report Date
FEB 18, 2016


Potential Number of Units Affected

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.

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. The recall began on June 24, 2016. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is G0F.

Dates of Manufacture

Mfg's Report Date
SEP 17, 2015


Potential Number of Units Affected

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.

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. Owners were notified of an interim repair on March 21, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when the final remedy repair become available. Owners may contact Toyota's customer service number at 1-800-331-4331.
