    Other than at places that don't count (e.g. auto shows, driving events), I FINALLY spotted 1 today in the wild. It was parked along the street somewhere in Santa Clara, CA.

    Whoops.. the above was my 2nd sighting.

    Does seeing one every day in your garage count? :)

    I found a 2012. I paid a little less than $43k OTD before government incentives.

    I don't think I'll be spotting any out here anytime soon. That also goes for the Spark EV.
    :p

    I've sold this model to Il (Chicago area), Florida (x3), Colorado (x4), AZ, WA state (x4), Texas (x4) and NM and NY state (x3) as well as plenty in CA of course. Now that the rebate of $7500 doesn't require one to use the 0% apr or the lease terms from TFS to get, I expect to do even more out of the area cars.

    I saw a dark grey Rav4 EV (haven't ever seen 1 on the road before) going south on 101 or 85 sometime past 6:30 pm on Sunday.

    I was driving my brand new blue '13 Leaf SV from Boardwalk Nissan. Just began a 2 year lease today.

    Congrats on the LEAF, as awesome as the RAV4 EV is, the LEAF is a very fun car to drive (and very refined!).

    Dark grey? Could it have been the grey/blue color or do you think it was a custom paint job?

    Now that I look at Toyota Rav4 EV 2013 | Electric Crossover SUV, it was probably Shoreline Blue Pearl.

    If you are on the fence on an EV, get this car. It is the best EV car you can buy without buying a Tesla. I traded my RX450h for it

    Some members (Hawaii, Seattle) had problems with servicing their RAV4EV - apparently Toyota has been denying service outside of California.

    At the plug-in day gathering, there was one there owned by a NJ resident. Sweet!
