The Toyota Rav4 Ev is the First Vehicle of Its Size to Not Use Gas

Designed to mimic to the design of the original RAV4, the SUV does fall a bit short when it comes to utility as it has been designed with front-wheel drive functionality rather than the four-wheel drive capabilities of its predecessor.
