Default Hello from Reva owner

Hi, my name is Mike. I'm based in the UK and drive a Reva electric car.

Here in the UK, the Reva has been quite a hit in Central London where it is known as the 'G-Wiz'. Thanks to tax benefits for driving an electric car in London, it's become a common sight.

Are there any Reva owners on this forum?

Hi Mike! All the best on your G-wiz, Neat to know that you charge your car when we actually pull into a bunk to refuel.
Enjoy you time here and post in your views and reviews on your car in the drive.
cheers!

Cool

Welcome to team-bhp Mike,

How long have you been driving the 'G-Wiz' ?
How is it ?

Can you please post some pics and write a review.
Must be a different feeling to drive an electric and the strange feeling of never going to a fuel station

Hi Mike,

Indeed there are a few reva owners on the forum. Infact i think we have quite a few members from Coventry as well.

Unfortunately the Reva isnt as popular in india as it is in the UK.

Check out this thread -
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...e-traffic.html (Is anyone driving Reva in realtime traffic?)

and this for some fun -

Hi Mike
Welcome to the forum. Tell us more about your car and your experiences.
I own a Reva for the last 6 years. I have posted comments on the car in the links shared by Rehaan.

Enjoy your stay here.

Well, the Reva I own is the dc-drive version. It's 2 years old and one of the very few that isn't in London.

I use it for commuting too and from work - around 13 miles. It works pretty well and does everything I ask of it.

I run the G-Wiz Owner's Club here in the UK. One of the reasons for joining the Team-BHP forum is to find other Indian Reva owners and see if there is any interest in expanding the G-Wiz Owner's Club into a worldwide group.

Next year, Reva are launching a new electric car. Has anyone here heard anything about it? Any spy photographs or information available? There is certainly a lot of interest here in the UK in the new car.
