RAV4-EV Secrets: Plugs into solar, instant Volt
RAV4-EV can be plugged into the wall, or into a rooftop solar system, can be fast-charged, can be controlled by the owner. A fast charger could have been installed by Toyota to plug into the wail. Add a small engine-generator, and it's an instant plug-in serial hybrid with 120 miles of all-electric range, 3 times what the proposed Volt would have (if GM were serious). Proves that GM could make such a car right now, is stalling and lying. AMAZING, people see the EV and solar power, and want to do it themselves. But GM and Toyota are refusing to sell an EV, which makes it all possible. Without a plug-in car, you can't use the solar power credits to charge your car, and the money formerly spent on gas to pay off the solar system. There has ALWAYS been more demand for EVs than supply, contrary to the LIES of Toyota and GM, and exposing the perfidy of the so-called "air resources" board -- CARB.
