The Toyota RAV4 EV could challenge the Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model X. The electric hardware of the model is manufactured by the Californian automaker. However, the SUV with front-wheel drive and a 103-mile range falls well short of Tesla’s range. The model is already available in California at a price of $49,800.

The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid is not fully electric, but it might prove to be strong opposition. The vehicle is already available in the U.K. at a price similar to the diesel Outlander. It offers a 32.5-mile all-electric range. It is expected that the vehicle will be available in the first half of 2015 at a price of around $40,000.

For the U.S. market, the mode will be reworked to run on gasoline, and a full electric charge will offer a range of 35 miles. Similar to the V60, this plug-in hybrid SUV is expected to be fast. An announcement from Volvo is expected sometime later this year. The price of the vehicle could be over $65,000.
