Mahindra was trying to release a 6 seater electric rickshaw called "Bijlee" in Mumbai and other metros. Unfortunately it ran into some problems - namely the rickshaw unions as usual objected.

Also it had trouble climbing flyovers

But Reva is going global, mainly in the UK in the form of the Gee Whizz. See several in a week in Central London.
