Scoop Video: Mahindra Reva NXR caught testing

Mahindra has been working extensively on its next generation electric vehicle, the NXR. The new car will address all the problems that the earlier Reva (or the G-Wiz) had, like cramped interiors, low range and less top speed. Introduced to the world at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2001, the car will be launched in 2012. Followed by an even more powerful and sportier version namely NXG in 2013

The REVA NXR would be made available only in a two door version, but with enough space to seat four adults. Years of development on the first-gen Reva would mean that the NXR would come with improved acceleration and range over its predecessor. The NXR reaches a top speed of 104 kmph while providing a range of 160 km.

Apart from its performance, the NXR also comes with some very innovative communication features to keep you updated about the battery charge and other critical info. The NXR is capable of texting you about crucial information such as Time-to-full-change, pre-heat or pre-cool the car, mail you a report on your driving habits or even unlocking the door as you approach.

The Reva also comes with something called REVive technology, which conserves a certain amount of charge only for emergencies and can be activated remotely if the primary charge has completely depleted.

For India, the company may replace the standard Li-ion batteries with lead-acid units to bring down costs. This would reduce the NXR’s range to 80km, and top speed to 80km/h.

The REVA NXR will be manufactured at the company’s new green manufacturing plant in Bangalore. The car is meant primarily for the European market, where the NXR Intercity (Li-ion) will cost about 15,000 Euros or a little more than Rs. 10lakh. The Reva NXR City on the other hand, with lead acid batteries would be priced at about 10,000 Euros or around Rs. 7 lakh.

I have never really followed up on this car. But have seen this on a couple of occasions near the total mall junction, both times at around 1000AM, on madivala road. I thought it was already launched and the car was not camouflaged or anything

Surely an improvement over the older design but the height to width ratio continues to lend it rather cartoon-ish stance. Reducing an inch or two from the waist-line will go a long way in lending the right proportions. Im sure its only a matter of time before the PS wizards in our forum strike back!
Keeping design aside, hats off to the Maini group for conceiving & delivering a product which was way ahead of its time when launched. When the Reva was launched in 2001 it was the worlds first first mass produced electric vehicle. Beating the Americans, the Japanese and the Germans to be the first to introduce any type of contemporary automobile, is no mean feat. With M&M taking over the platform one can speculate that Reva electric vehicles will benefit from M&Ms financial strength and distribution network.

The pictures are too good. Its really a makeover compared to the current Reva. Looks stylish and jazzy. I am sure there will be many takers for the same as they have really turned around this vehicle. If the pricing is right it would be a hot seller looking at the rising fuel prices.
