Toyota’s electric retrofit of SUV feels half-baked

The good: The 2012 Toyota RAV4 EV boasts an EPA range of 103 miles on its battery, and seems capable of more. The electric drive means low maintenance and running costs. Toyota Entune provides excellent connected features for monitoring charging.

The bad: The RAV4 EV has no option for quick charging, making minimum full recharge time 5 hours. Charging station locations could be better integrated with its navigation system. Even after incentives, it remains a pricey electric vehicle.

The bottom line: The fact that the 2012 Toyota RAV4 EV is an electric SUV is less compelling than its range, where it comes in a little stronger than most electric cars.
