I can't figure if it is lack of demand or just low production.
It is not like the last 1,000 are just sitting on the lot to be sold are they?

Cars.com says there are only 67 on dealer lots, which is only one month supply at the current selling rate. Clearly Toyota is just dribbling them out, whether that's Toyota's plan or a product of the recent difficulties in rail shipping, who knows... We hear Dianne can't get enough, but that's probably just a product of Toyota's allocation system.

well i have seen some *online* ads for the Rav4EV recently, so i'm guessing Toyota is trying to move some cars.

I'm wondering whether i should pick up a 2nd one near the end of the production run and then keep it and swap it in when mine is 6 or 7 years old.
(ie. lease at the lowest possible lease rate and pay the differential at the end of the lease, which would be aroudn the time i'd start using the car for more than minor errands).

Then i could sell the one i currently own to someone who wants the white stickers and only needs 80-90 miles of range and have a brand new one to start using....

Sorry to say, but those online ads are targeted ads based on your browsing history. If you've visited this page a lot, you'll see Toyota RAV4 EV ads on other websites. The general population who doesn't research/google RAV4 EV or visits related EV sites will not likely see any.

My dealer had a blue one, called several others to exchange. He has several on the way and all the other dealers tried to pry them from his fingers.
Must a be lot of leaf owners (like me ;-) ) turning in the leaf and go straight to toyota dealer for a rav4ev.

From InsideEV's: http://insideevs.com/july-2014-plug-electric-vehicle-sales-report-card/

July 2014 sales were 68 units, for a total of 1811. June sales were 91, and May 149.

They say the RAV4 EV has the most unpredictable sales!

Big month with 228 sold! And only 818 Plugin Prius.

I guess some extra incentives and with units running out there is finally some demand!
Only 470 left.
