Toyota, Tesla Working on Electric Prototypes for RAV4 and RX


- July 11, 2010

Toy­ota and Tesla’s work­ing rela­tion­ship appears to be deep­en­ing as the com­pa­nies work on bat­tery-elec­tric pro­to­types for the Toy­ota RAV4 and Lexus RX that could be out­fit­ted with a Tes­la-built elec­tric dri­ve sys­tem and bat­ter­ies. The goal would be to build a vehi­cle that costs about $40,000 with 150 miles of dri­ving range per charge.
