REVA to Launch Two New Electric Cars with Emergency Roadside Recharging

Indian electric car company REVA will launch two new electric cars at Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) to be held on September 16.

REVA has claimed to add a unique technology to its cars called ‘range anxiety’ that is worrying about running out of charge mid-way. The REVive telematics technology acts like an invisible reserve fuel tank. When drivers run out of charge they just have to call or message REVA for an instant remote top-up, and they will have their reserve battery power remotely activated. Further details of this technology will be revealed by REVA at IAA.

Reva Electric carThe company will launch the NXR, a four-seat, three-door hatchback model designed for the city, and the NXG, a two-seater sports model. Both the models are equipped with the new REVive technology.

The Bangalore-based REVA Electric Car Company is an enterprise of Maini Group of India and AEV LLC of California and backed by US investors Global Environment Fund and Draper Fisher Jurvetson.

The company is presently constructing a new ultra-low carbon vehicle assembly plant in Bangalore, which is expected to produce 30,000 vehicles per annum.
