Toyota... pushing leases not so much to change the bottom line but to provide the big incentives only for California-originated leases, as there was a lot of interest in the car from outside the state, which can play havoc with the CARB credits Toyota receives for each car.


That is exactly right. Every issue with the sale of Rav4 EV centered around those CARB-ZEV credits, as that is the singular reason for its existence. We will likely see an even more California-only lease centric deal with the hydrogen car (let's face it, how are you going to refuel a hydrogen car out-of-state, anyway?).

Sell it outright for $32,000+, pay off the lease as part of the transfer same as you would pay off a loan.
+1. Market it out-of-state (ebay motors?) and you could probably even turn a nice little profit.

I am interested in selling my Rav4EV in February of next year (after leasing it for 18 month). Does anyone have any experience getting out of a 36 month lease with Toyota on a Rav4EV? The questions I have are:

1) How do I ensure I am not liable for the lease payments after I transfer ownership?
2) Does TFS even allow transfer prior to the 36 months?
3) What are the penalties?
4) Does this affect my credit score? Is it like defaulting on a loan?
5) According to the TFS website, I can buy my car for $29,322. Is that really correct? What about all the incentives TFS gave me? If that's really true and someone wanted to buy the car, why not just lease it for one month and get the $17,500 in incentives and then turn around and purchase it?
6) I know I will have to give California half of the $2500 back.
7) Would going through a Toyota dealer be the safest way to do this?
