That's the Reva NXR, being tested prior to its commercial production to be started in April and European launch in May.

Great catch!! It's probably the first snaps of the Reva NXR on road. Looks very ugly from the rear IMO.

Indeed the Reva NXR! Great catch. I'll reserve my comments until I see it in person, but based on these pictures, it looks like a modified car of sorts. Maini is betting big on the new Reva. Apparently, the battery offers an extended range and the car is overall a big leap ahead of the currently sold model.

I have seen this car on jail road/Hosa road. Reva show room is near the HSR layout. Everyday almost in the evening they go by this road. Min of 5-6 times they travel.

pics of the car suggest it is much bigger than the present one. do you think one can compare it with perhaps the Beat in terms of overall size?

I doubt DC had anything to do with this one infact the ugly second car displayed with this one was the one bt DC. This one is really nicely designed with all euro elements sportyness/hot hatch look/touring hatch/even the stance looks like a lowered fiat arbath type thing

Oh,

I saw this on Hosur road on Saturday (20th Feb), was wondering which one is it.

I was busy in getting the WS fixed from Windshiled experts in Madiwala.

i don't think so. the size is way smaller than beat but length might be comparable.
