Best car we've ever owned. Prior to leasing (and later purchasing) the RAV4, we leased the Honda EV, which had some good attributes but not the battery durability of the RAV. * We are treating current range as about 60 miles (but think it could be pushed further). We are generally keeping the battery at 50% charge or better and we have adapted our driving to the decline in battery strength. * The car has always lived in the flatlands - no hills.
