New press release identifies the vehicles as the RAV4 and changes the details concerning prototype delivery.

Electric car company Tesla Motors (Nasdaq: TSLA) verified details of its development deal with Toyota (NYSE: TM).

Tesla began trading on the Nasdaq on June 29. Share prices surge around 50% in the first week of trading before settling around the IPO price of $17.
