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.”
