    How is it that this gets posted after the tour has ended? Not that it matters too much as the traffic on this site is very low. An even bigger problem is the lack of advertising by Toyota on this event anywhere. Almost nobody knew about the tour. It is a shame because this is the best EV available. What a great car!

      That was our fault – we wrote the article about the Rav4 EV tour but failed to publish it! Did you get a chance to see the Rav4 EV in person while it was on tour?
      I agree with the lack of press Toyota has put into this.

        I did drive the car on the tour stop in Sacramento. I was very impressed with the car. By far the best EV out there. Model S is the only other vehicle that can best it, but at twice the price. I’m saving right now.
