RAV4 EV Rav4 2
 

During the process of converting a 2nd Kubvan to electric power, the search for suitable batteries turned up a used RAV4 EV with good batteries but a defective motor controller.

Initially I was going to take out the batteries and put them into the Kubvan, until it became obvious that this vehicle deserved to remain on the road.

The RAV4 EV restoration project began and unfortunately has put the EV2 project on hold.
