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 .
