Toyota happily released a press statement touting the all-electric RAV4 EV’s entry into the Californian market. Toyota Motor Sales announced that on the week of September 24th, special financing and a customer lease option will be available.

The all-electric RAV4 EV receives an MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) of 74 highway and 78 city, according to the EPA’s figures, for a range of 103 miles.

With a starting price of $49,800, special purchase financing begins with an APR rate of 1.9% for qualified customers, while a 36-month lease option ringing in at $599 per month with $3,499 due at signing. Pretty expensive for a techie RAV4. Roughly 2,600 units will be produced through 2014.

Powering the RAV4 EV is an electric drivetrain supplied by Leviton. With their proprietary custom 240V (Level 2), 40 amp charger rated at 9.6 kW, the RAV4 EV can charge from zero to full in roughly six hours, according to Toyota. A 120V 12 amp (Level 1) charger cable is provided as well in the event that a Level 2 charger is unavailable.

Also aiding in the development of the RAV4 EV is electric car maker, Tesla Motors.
