Cool Yet another Reva-aaah???

Hey all,

Was lucky to get this snap (though a bit blurry) of some new variant of reva being tested out. This is perhaps the most horrendous design possible of the reva - that of the original reva at the back, froggy lamps possibly at the front and hold your breath - amby styled roof !!



I am wondering what sort of variant this is and when Maini is planning to get it out, also wondering if this seems like a four seater. now that they have achieved 80-100km range with reva-i, dunno how much this will go.

Srik

Been long time saw you active! Nice catch, although seems like it'll find its way to the weird and wacky section soon (the roof doesn't jel with the whole thing).

Why not watermark the image across the car?

That roof is hopefully just a camouflage. If it isn't, then it is a sure-fire way to burn any chances of success of the new model.

Did you notice the slightly wider rubber ? Or is it as much even on the current version ?

This cannot be a car for gods sake. I hope its some kinda camouflage and they are trying out a new engine or something.

Must be a camouflage.

It is not a car at all... What are Maini people trying to do? Do they think the cutomers are idiots to buy this type of vehicle and at what price.

Definitely camouflage. Which means theres a much better Reva or something on its way. If the tyres are any indication, it also means its a more ambitious project. Maybe a 250km range, decent 4 seater for 4Lacs ? Ok, I'm just hoping here...

This car was there at VY and agreed the rear is ugly, but it actually doesn't look so bad from the side profile
