Toyota of Orlando is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV to our Central Florida dealership – it’s an electric version of the already impressive compact SUV that so many Toyota drivers in Central Florida favor! The 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV has been testing in California, and is due to hit several dealerships there in the coming months. Toyota of Orlando can’t wait to get our hands on this eco-friendly SUV – it’s in good company with our amazing selection of hybrid vehicles, like the Orlando Toyota Prius family and our Toyota Camry Hybrid and Highlander Hybrid models!
The all-electric Toyota Rav4 EV
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV is an electric vehicle that Toyota co-developed with Tesla, a major guru in the engineering field. This all-electric sibling to the Orlando Toyota RAV4 gets an impressive estimated driving range rating of 100 miles; it takes about 6 hours to charge (on a 240V charger), and will be equipped with Normal and Sport power settings! The new 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV will have a starting MSRP of $49,800 at our Toyota dealership in Central Florida. While this may seem pricey, drivers have to take into account the fact that they’ll be saving enormous amounts of money on fuel costs, and may be eligible for federal and state incentives for purchasing and operating such an environmentally-sensitive vehicle.
As mentioned, the 2013 Toyota RAV4 EV in Central Florida will be equipped with Normal and Sport driving settings. The Normal setting will top you out at a speed of 85mph, and Sport will get you up to 100mph. It also features two charging modes – when you give it a “standard” charge, you can drive up to 92 miles. If you charge it in the “extended” setting, you can make your trip a bit longer – up to 113 miles on a single charge. The Orlando Toyota RAV4 EV easily slides past competition, offering longer driving on a single charge than competitors like the Ford Focus EV, Chevy Volt, and Honda Fit EV!
Get great fuel-efficiency with the Toyota Rav4 EV
In addition to the impressively eco-friendly driving capabilities (and its ability to save you a ton of money on fuel costs), the Orlando Toyota RAV4 EV in Central Florida has other upgrades and implements, including a newly redesigned rear spoiler, electric power steering, and a flat underbody battery tray (which results in a flat floor on the interior and easier to manipulate cargo space). The interior takes things up a notch and stands out from its Toyota of Orlando RAV4 siblings with elements like manually adjustable heated seats, as well as a buttonless touch screen for navigation, audio, etc.. The instrument module is also entirely digital, lending a cool, futuristic feel to the dash. The exterior of the Toyota RAV4 EV in Central Florida also features high-efficiency lights, lacks a grill (creating a sleeker and more aerodynamic look), and integrates the blue eco badges found on all environmentally sensitive new Toyota models in Orlando!
