Why would you export a RAV4 EV?

While visiting West Coast Shipping's warehouse, I saw this RAV4 EV. Less than 2,000 were sold, and all in California.

I wonder why anyone would buy this abroad? My theories:
1. Electrics and hybrids are very popular in Mongolia (someone here told me that, but I don't remember who). Maybe it's headed there.
2. It does share components with the Tesla. Maybe it's just a parts car. But what components does the RAV4 share?
