Toyota reduces 2013 RAV4 EV lease price

Toyota has announced significant discounts to try and lure buyers to pick up the 2013 RAV4 EV. Toyota is offering both a low-cost lease and loan options to get buyers to adopt the $49,800 electric SUV. The new lease option brings the price for a three-year lease to $299 per month.

Buyers who prefer to purchase the vehicle out right will be able to do so with a 60-month loan at 0% interest. Both of these special offers are available through September 3 with the catch. Only buyers in Los Angeles or San Francisco can take advantage of either of these options.

Those are the two main markets for the vehicle according to Toyota. “The use of our incentives is tactical, reinforcing our value and focus on keeping our products competitive in the market,” company spokeswoman Carly Schaffner said. “We’re still evaluating the market demand for EVs.”

Toyota Increases Investment in Indiana on Popularity of Highlander SUV

Aug 22 2014 1:08pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Investment of $100 Million Will Add 300 More JobsThe ad jingle for the 2014 Toyota Highlander is it “ain’t got no room for boring,” sung by a carful of Muppets. The relative excitement of the midsize SUV is debatable, but its sales success and contribution to Toyota’s bottom line is not. Highlander sales are up 16 percent year-over-year from January through July 2014. To help meet strong demand for the r ...

What do the Elio, Aptera, Toyota i-Road concept and the spectacularly awful Zap Xebra have in common? They--and many more small-volume economical vehicles and concepts besides--all use one fewer wheel than the norm.
