Seeing old Toyota RAV4 EVs pop up on eBay is nothing new. One of them usually goes up for auction several times a year. The one up for sale this week, though, isn't one of the vehicles that was originally built by the manufacturer. Instead this one is an aftermarket conversion done by a company known as Powered By DC, LLC. It uses a 30.7 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery pack which is claimed to provide a 100-mile range at freeway speeds. According to the listing, it has accumulated about 5,100 miles since being completed in December and the builders are putting on about 100 miles a day for testing. The bid as of this writing is $10,000 and the Buy It Now price is $50,000. The sellers say this vehicle is being sold to fund the construction of a new vehicle based on a current-generation RAV4.
