The performance of the new Rav4 EV is pretty decent, can reach about 160 km and an acceleration equal to that of a RAV4 traditional gasoline engine, although it has an extra weight of around 100 kilograms. Like the Scion iQ, the RAV4 EV does not allow its electric batteries obstruct the interior space, so the car will keep its 9.2 cubic feet of cargo space.
