Toyota will show its RAV4 EV Concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show next week.

Toyota says that the concept marks further progress towards RAV4 EV being brought to market in the USA in 2012.

The new concept combines the current RAV4 compact SUV with an electric powertrain from Tesla Motors. In May, Toyota announced it would co-operate with the American company in the development of electric vehicles and parts, and in EV production systems and engineering.

Toyota will announce specifications and further details of the new RAV4 EV Concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 17 November.
