Mr. Anand Mahindra had tweeted out earlier this year that the new REVA would launch in 2012

Our regular readers would know well about the numerous test mules of the EV which were spotted across the country. Mahindra appears to be not content with few aspects of the car.

    The central government subsidy for EVs expired many months ago, so they are probably waiting for the government to launch the new national mission on EVs…

    I wonder why the NXR (E2O) features amongst the Hot & Happening cars space on your pages??? Appears to be a strange choice and naturally wondering about the yardstick considered for a car to be feature there.

    I do agree with the other ones featuring in there though.

    1. We believe the NXR will be the first proper electric car in India, and with government backing, it can be a very simple, environment friendly and inexpensive form of commute in urban areas.
