Say what you want about electric cars
, they can go for a pretty penny on eBay. Recently, electric versions of Toyota's RAV4
have sold for $60,000-$70,000 (way up from the original list price of around $40,000, which also got ten grand or so in tax credits). There's another of these electric SUVs currently for sale on the site. The auction
ends Oct. 25 and has been bid up to $11,000 already. This car has under 34,000 miles and the nickel-metal hydride batteries can be expected to last for around 100,000 miles before needing replacement, the seller says. Toyota
has announced they'll service RAV4 EVs
as long as the vehicles are "sustainable", whatever that means.
Added bonus: there are more pictures of a RAV4 EV as part of this auction
than I've ever seen. If you want an in-depth tour of the vehicle from your screen, check it out.
