I am assuming sarcasm with the $49,800? That is a lot for a RAV4 but not far from the Chevy Volt. MSRP of a Chevy Volt is $49,600 with the same tax credit. I don't know if personally I could drive an EV. I want to hear the motor, feel the power, etc. I don't doubt it's a nice ride since Toyota makes a quality car, just don't see the appeal of an EV. Gas would have to be 10$ a gallon to make me switch.
