AST: Does this look about right?

I used the aero steamline template and tried to match it as best as I could. I still can't quite figure out how long a full boat tail would be for this RAV4 EV. Could anyone chime in on the possible stats to look for? I'm quite interested in how long it should be.

Some stats:

Range: 113 mi battery-only
Warranty: 3 yr/36,000 mi basic, 5 yr/60,000 mi powertrain
Battery: 41.8 kWh 386 V lithium-ion
MPGe: 78 city / 74 highway
Battery charge time: 44h at 110V, 5h at 220V
Dimensions: 180″ L x 72″ W x 66″ H

Toyota RAV4 EV/Curb weight: 4,032 lbs

Toyota reduced the drag coefficient of the popular SUV from 0.31 to 0.30.

103 EPA rating from an average of 92 (Normal charge 80%) and 113 (Extended Charge 100%)

Compare Side-by-Side

There is also this youtube video on how the drag was worked for the rav4 ev from the manufacturer

If I remember correctly, the highest part of the template is supposed to match the highest point the windshield. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. It's been a while since I've used it

Best Tank = 42.72 mpg

Current Mods:
Mudflap Delete, Fully Synthetic Oil, Max Sidewall PSI, Warm Air Intake, EOC Kill Switch, MPGuino, Lowered 1", Vacuum Gauge.

Highest points on the roof need to match up.

So I got in a car accident in march and it kind of drained my soul, but things are better now. This needs a much needed update. So I played with the template and I came up with these two. The first template is larger while the second is smaller. Its hard to really line up the lines with the car maybe because of lighting and background. Both give me weird results. Which do you guys suggest to use? also, are these still wrong?



it almost looks to me like the natural angle on the rav4 ev is kind of poor and does not slope enough on the end. me thinks partially due to the spoiler and the very poor or slow angling near the end of the rav4 ev ? making it more rectangle?
