Default Toyota RAV4 EV Aerodynamics Detailed in Video



Toyota has just released the second part of a video series chronicling the development of the RAV4 EV. This video focuses on the aerodynamics of the electric crossover.

Fender skirts have been added to direct airflow around the wheels, and the spoiler was reshaped to aid the flow of air off the top of the vehicle.
