It's been the same scenario in California when an automaker takes back their electric vehicles after the leases run out; Electric vehicle fans want to buy the vehicles. Toyota is next on the list, lining up their Rav4s at the crusher to be destroyed, while activists protest. Ford gave in with the electric Ranger, allowing consumers to buy them, but GM and Toyota are crushing away. Toyota says the remaining SUVs were prototypes and cannot allow them into service because of product liability. Toyota did say that 1,000 Rav4 electric vehicles produced between 1998 and 2003 were available for sale to consumers.
