If this comment is to be believed:
Actually, this was a testbed mule for the Model S power train. This has nothing to do with being a truck other than it was big enough to install the stuff on for drive testing. It’s normally parked outside at Tesla HQ.

There is also a RAV4EV section on the RAV4World forums: http://www.rav4world.com/forums/109-...ctric-rav4-ev/

I've set up a wiki-map (like the one we have for Tesla Reservation holders) on which Rav4 EV owners can post their locations. I'll approve them as they come in.
Here's how to add an entry for yourself (and your Rav4 EV):
1. Point your browser to: Rav4EVOwners
2. To add a marker, use the Additions/Add Marker - Simple drop-down.
3. Enter in your forum name, your car's color, and your location
4. Submit your entry
5. Wait (semi-patiently) for me to approve your submission
If you want to just enter your city, feel free. I turned on the setting to hide street addresses for those of us who are semi-security conscious.
I'm curious to see where all of you, and your cars, are. Any out of staters?
I have to admit, I was dubious that the Rav4 would really have 41.8kWh usable, but after running it to "turtle" mode (same as the LEAF), and measuring over 50kWh at the EVSE getting pumped back in, I'm a believer.
I did drive the car 130.1 miles on a rental. Here is my second draft of the range chart for this car. Lots of work to do, but you'll notice that I've highlighted the EPA ratings, which appear to be achieved at 2.7 miles/kWh.
The fuel gauge, unfortunately, does read above 80% capacity. I don't know why Toyota/Tesla thought that was wise.
