Manish,how do you know if its a Reva? I couldn't make out anything from the pics. Just curious.
If it is indeed the new Reva,then its definitely going to be a success.Looks much better than the previous design!

Strange Find Manish , i always expect your post in the exotic section. :P

275 kg payload.
Thats pretty less.
What is the seating like.
Same as the old one ( very very cramped)

@ Abhinav ,
i got to compare the new and the old one as they were both together.
the new one looks more spacious than the old one IMO .

Definitely looks much better (and a bit bigger) than the old Reva. Specs look decent too.

Does this mean owner has to have a 3-phase power supply at his premises to utilise this. I am not sure if 3-phase power supply is granted for non-industrial purposes.

Excellent car but not so good price. people will compare it with maruti Swift and Reva will fall flat on the face.

The Indian mentality still thinks battery cars are toys.
