Toyota and Tesla to Build 2012 RAV4 EV in Ontario #green

In a press release, Toyota wrote: "'The Tesla-Toyota joint development team has agreed that building the vehicle at the Woodstock plant on the same line as the gasoline-powered RAV4, will streamline and simplify the production process and guarantee the highest level of quality control,' said Ray Tanguay, TMMC Chairman, who hosted Canadian officials at the plant today and thanked them for their support. 'This is a great example of Toyota's determination to collaborate with companies with leading edge technology.' As previously announced, Toyota will pay Tesla approximately $100 million to supply the electric powertrain, which includes the battery, motor, gear box and power electronics for the RAV4 EV. Tesla will build the electric powertrains at its production facility in Palo Alto, California and then ship them to TMMC for final assembly into the vehicle."
