From the stick on label applied to the driver side window of a new RAV4 EV . . .

WARNING:
Motor vehicles contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals are contained in many vehicle components and replacement parts, vehicle fluids, and paints and materials used to maintain vehicles, including, but not limited to, fuel, oil, batteries, brakes, and wheel balancing weights. In addition, motor vehicles emit engine exhaust and fumes, and when serviced, cleaned or maintained generate used oil, waste fluids, fumes, grease, grime and particulates from component wear, which contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. (Posted in accordance with Proposition 65 in Cal. Health & Safety COde&25249.5 et seq.) For further information about Proposition 65: http://www.oehha.org/prop65.html.


Seems kind of ironic to read a label like this on our cars. Prop 65 probably needs an update!!! :mrgreen:

Plus oil in the gear box, two types of coolant (Tesla for the motor/inverter/converter/batteries and Toyota for the cabin heater), brake fluid, brake dust emission, air conditioner refrigerant, tire residue and I'm sure more stuff.
