Toyota, Tesla plan to build electric RAV4 in 2012

PALO ALTO, Calif. — Toyota Motor Corp. and electric vehicle upstart Tesla Motors Inc. say they’ll work together to develop an electric version of Toyota’s RAV4 small crossover vehicle.

Tesla will develop the electric power system for the RAV4, which looks a small sport utility vehicle but is based on a car frame. The company already has built one prototype for testing and plans to deliver a fleet of prototypes for Toyota to evaluate sometime this year.

The companies announced a partnership in May to develop and build electric cars at a recently closed auto factory in the San Francisco Bay area.

My dream to get a electric car of Toyota will be fulfilled soon. I hope the electric car will be a fantastic one and Toyota will try to send it with cheap rate to the market. Thanks for this fruitful information.
