Hi! No positive response from Toyota Norway. They had checked out the cost to fix a US-imported Prius, and it would cost aprox 80.000 NOK! Ca 8700€!! But i'm sure it's wrong. I don't need to get everything changed to eurostandard, only the map.
I have now added 13000 km (total 32000km) and it works just fine!

Good luck with your car! How many km does it have when it reach you?

Paul

So I asked the service rep about the map update aduring my 10k mi visit. He checked with parts department and a few technicians but nobody knew how to get European maps. They suggested checking with a dealership when I get to Europe.

But I was quoted $980 for a new windshield because mine is cracked :shock: . That sounds absurd. Does that sound right?

A third-party windshield would be cheaper. Also, many people have glass coverage that either has no deductible, or a lower deductible. Call Safelite, or a local auto glass place. Make sure they understand that you have a Rav4EV and not a regular Rav4. I would think the glass from the regular 2012 RAV4 model would work on all the RAV4EV years.

officially we have a rain sensor, except that the electronics is disabled :-(

The EV windshield is thicker, but yes, any 2006-2012 RAV4 windshield should be ok.

Per the manual (p. 291), the puck next to the rear-view mirror that looks like a rain sensor is a temperature and humidity sensor used to detect fog on the windshield. I don't believe it's disabled - at the very least, I've had the car automatically turn on the front defog in appropriate situations several times. The same puck is also present on other Toyota cars I've driven that have automatic climate control systems but nevertheless don't have automatic, rain-sensing wipers.

I stand corrected
Sorry and thanks!

One of the cosmetic differences between the standard ICE RAV4 windshield and the special RAV4 EV one is that the area behind and around the humidity sensor is blacked out. With the cheaper windshield, you see the back of the sensor from the outside of the vehicle.
