The chief engineer behind the electric RAV 4 — which is under development by electric car startup Tesla Motors (s TSLA) and auto giant Toyota — sits down with us to chat about the future of the deal and the details of the car for this week’s episode of GigaOM TV’s Green Overdrive Show. After working on the RAV 4 EV for over six months, Toyota’s Greg Bernas tells me that the coolest technology in the RAV 4 EV is the battery system, which will give the car 100-miles of range. For the next-generation RAV 4 EV, Bernas says the car will have a new unique design with the traditional RAV 4 styling cues. We can’t wait!
