Saw a pristine white one turning north onto Spring street at High St. In Moorpark today at 4:45 pm. I don't think I've seen the same one twice yet. Ventura county seems to have its fair share.

Pulled up beside a Blizzard Pearl this morning on the northbound 101 in Sherman Oaks with Carson Toyota plates.

I've been wanting (lusting for, really) a RAV4 EV ever since test driving one at a green car expo back in October 2012. Ended up getting the Fit EV instead, and had been driving it daily for last year. Since then I'd only seen 2 or 3 RAV4 EV's out in the wild on my daily commute and weekend trips. I finally leased my very own Pearl White 2014 RAV4 EV last week, and today I saw TWO other Pearl White's on my commute from Richmond to Fairfield. One passed me flying by in the fast lane going up the big incline on eastbound interstate 80 right past Vallejo. I was all the way over in the slow lane going about 60 mph. Then the second one I saw this morning was coming from the opposite direction on Green Valley Rd as I was exiting the highway to my office. First one had carpool stickers, second one did not. Looks like they're becoming popular here in this area now.

That's funny - how in the world did you come across that? It's also funny there appears to be a Tesla and a Volt in the pics as well. Quite a few commuting EV's in your area.

You really can't miss the Street View cars when they're out collecting imagery. It's just a question of how much time passes before the new imagery is available online. Google shows the month and year at the bottom of the screen when you're in Street View.

Yep! I actually saw the street view car from a ways back so made a point to get to it and tuck in behind it for fun. This was in the end of May I believe and the last time I checked (about a month ago) they hadn't been uploaded. So it clearly takes about 2-3 months from capture to publishing with street view.

And yes, plug-ins are a dime a dozen around here. Went to Starbucks up the road this morning and saw a Model S with livery plates in the parking lot and a grey LEAF drove by me when I pulled in to my driveway.

That reminds me to check on the last time I saw a Google Street View vehicle... was near where I live... let's see....

Yep, there I am – white RAV4 EV:
