• On Monday at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Los Angeles, Toyota announced details of its RAV4 EV, a purely electric version of its compact crossover. With a powertrain co-developed by Tesla Motors, the RAV4 EV is expected to cost $49,800 before tax incentives and undisclosed delivery charges. Toyota estimates the vehicle, with a 115-kilowatt motor, roughly the equivalent of 154 horsepower, can travel up to 100 miles on a charge and recharge from a fully depleted state in six hours at a 240-volt station. Sales initially will be limited this summer to four metropolitan areas in California. (Toyota)

• Jaguar Land Rover is expected to invest £200 million, or $324 million, at its plant in Castle Bromwich, England, to accommodate production of the F-Type sports car, which was teased at the New York auto show in April.
