Tesla / Toyota RAV4 Unveiled at the La Auto Show

Earlier this spring we announced the very exciting news of Toyota’s $50 million dollar investment in Tesla and their partnership to build a new mass-market electric vehicle, and now we are thrilled to announce that the new Tesla / Toyota RAV4 electric vehicle sedan was just unveiled this evening at the Los Angeles Auto Show. My lovely sister Katie was on the scene in LA and took a bunch of great photos of the new (apparently very early stage) RAV4 – this design is based on Toyota’s original RAV4 which was launched in 1997, but never made it into lage scale commercial production due to “lack of consumer demand”. Jump ahead to Gigaom for exclusive pics and more coverage of this exciting development.
