I ended up getting one.. and keeping the Leaf (for fun and hacking).. but the range on the 2014 Rav's is amazing! And rumors about the pack and what's inside is very cool!!! ;)

We all know they are the new "B" cells.. and other goodies... but I love the fact that we can go out to the car.. have 54miles on the GOM (little over half range) and need to goto a restaurant in Moorepark which is 64miles away..

Cruise at 65mph...

And come back with 5miles left! :lol:

Nice job Tesla! :mrgreen:

I think the question was whether there was a link to provide more info about this quote:

and the follow-up question as to whether this was new for the 2014. Everything I've seen indicates that there's no difference at all between the different model years of the Rav4-EV, so I'd be very curious to learn more about this too.

Tesla has a label on the packs installed in the Model S. Original packs had a label with an "A" on them, these packs have a limitation on them that require a software limit of 90kW when supercharging. The folks with "B" and higher (they are up to at least a "D" pack at this point) can charge at 120kW at a supercharger. It has caused quite a stir among the Signature and other early Model S owners who cannot charge at the new higher rate.

Clearly there is something either in the chemistry or perhaps just a fuse rating inside the pack that limits this. It not not completely known what the differences are except the limit on the supercharger.
