Mahindra Reva is bringing its new futuristic electric car Reva NXR so as to revolutionize the commuting concept of Indians. If you would remember, the Mahindra Group had introduced this new concept model at the 2012 Auto Expo in Delhi. This two-door electric car can comfortably seat four passengers.
It will be available in two variants – either a lithium-ion or lead-acid battery pack. The lithium-ion battery powered car can cover a distance of 160 km on a full battery charge. It is expected that the Reva NXR will be a daring challenge to the Nissan Leaf when it launches inIndia.
The Indian government has announced a subsidy for electric cars that are assembled here. This is expected to help manufacturers to reduce the price of electric cars.
The government is still mulling over as to when t o launch the Reva NXR. Mahindra Reva targets to sell about 30,000 vehicles in the market within the coming four years. The electric NXR is part of that strategy. The car will be manufactured at the company’sBangaloreplant.
Reva NXR is expected to hit the Indian roads next year.
