SEATTLE, Aug. 5 (Kyodo) — Toyota Motor Corp. said Friday it will start mass-producing an electric version of the RAV4 sport-utility vehicle, which it is now jointly developing with U.S. EV venture Tesla Motors Inc., at its plant in Ontario, Canada, in 2012.

Toyota currently manufactures gasoline-powered RAV4s at the Ontario plant, and will produce its EV version using motors and batteries made by Tesla at its California factory, the Japanese automaker said.

While the EV RAV4 will be sold at Toyota dealers in the United States, details, including prices, will be announced later, it said.
