A few years ago, a video of Tom Hanks excitedly talking up his electric Scion xB (aka eBox, which he got first) made the rounds. All Hanks' Hollywood money means that he can drive and be excited about not just one, but multiple electric cars. Hanks recently went on the record to discuss his EV fandom as he cleared up a mistake in a New Yorker article. Writer Peter Boyer apparently mistakenly wrote that Hanks once owned an EV1.

Maybe that $32,600 RAV4 EV wasn't such an anomaly. Another of these all-electric SUVs has popped up on eBay and the Buy It Now price is just $35,000.

So, either the economy is taking its toll on eBay sales, (relatively) low gas prices are making people less likely to spend big bucks on an EV, or these are two examples that do not make a trend.

The ever-elusive electric RAV4 has once again shown its face. You can set your sights on one of the last of the major automakers' electric vehicles that still run wild in the streets in this eBay auction (by the way, did you know that Microsoft Word will tell you that Ebay is spelled wrong, but eBay is correct? Who took the time to program that into the Word dictionary?). This RAV4 EV currently has a bid of $35,000, but the reserve is not met (the Buy It Now price is $65,000, which is about on p
$15,000 for the batteries? An older battery system seems to be one of the main differences between the most-recent RAV4 EV which sold on eBay for almost $15,000 less than the RAV4 that sold for about $70,000 there about a month ago. As the only somewhat mass-produced, full-size electric vehicle still kicking around that was made by a major auto manufacturer, the RAV4 EV is a unique automobile. The RAV4 EV has been discontinued, but with Toyota's recent announcement that the company would s
