    So they hope demand for it picks up in other parts of the country, but it's not for sale in other parts of the country...

    That not what she says at 4:50. It was clear that 2600 through 2014 in California only (and not specifically stated is the Zero Emissions Vehicle credits from CARB) is all that's planned today, however AFTER 2014, if there is demand (and with only 140 sold so far... not looking so good), then they would look at what to do post 2014.

    I predict it will be exactly what they did in 2003 with the previous Rav4.

    I was thinking about the onboard charger for the RAV4 EV. I had assumed it was the same one as the standard 10kW charger on the Model S but then everything you see says the maximum charge rate is 9.6kW(40amp X 240v) while Tesla says the S charges at 10kW. I know it's splitting hairs, but is it the same onboard charger and they just list the charge rate differently? It would be surprising if they actually made a different charger since most of the other components are shared. Also is the onboard charger three 3.3kW chargers stacked together?

    I believe that the rav got the 9.6 kw designation due to the recommended EVSE pairing with Leutron which has a maximum output of 9.6 kw. I use a clipper creek ts-70 converted to J1772, and see a full40 amps rate.

    Thanks Lloyd. So even on an EVSE like the TS-70 that can supply up to 70amps the RAV4 will only pull 40amps which is 9.6kW then, interesting. So would you know if the Model S limit it's draw to 9.6kW also if you were charging it from a 70amp supply?

    Like I said, I know it's splitting hairs here, I'm just curious if there is any difference in the two charging systems. I had figured they would be identical.
