M&M plugs into REVA

WD is back into blogging after a long time, with an exciting and completely new stuff regarding the REVA electric car and its diversification in the automobile industry.

The world is going GREEN and hence the India's largest utility vehicle maker Mahindra & Mahindra is all charged up to drive into the electric vehicle market. On 26th MAY 2010, M&M has announced the acquiring of a majority stake in REVA of about 55.2%. This is going to become a huge benefactor for M&M, since with REVA, M&M will also get the electric vehicle technology at a low cost. This technology is aimed at applying not only for cars, but also for light commercial vehicles and buses.

Well, as a result of buying a huge stake in REVA, M&M renames RECC as Mahindra REVA Electric Car Company(MRECC). The 2 new models of REVA which are already shown for display at
Frankfurt motor show in the year 2009, and that are to be focused to the most in the future are, the Reva NXR and NXG.

Range, speed, safety and interior specifications all fall along the lines of a new generation of battery electric vehicles. The IC (inter-City) model has a top speed of 104 km/h (65 mph) and a range of 160 km (99 mi). The interior is of a far higher grade when compared to the earlier REVA quadracycle and the back seats now comfortably fit 2 adults.

The NXR has some unusual features, one being its Revive battery charging system. Telematic remote access to the car's on-board Energy Management System allows REVA to analyse a near depleted battery upon request. Their support centre can individually determine the battery condition within seconds and allow access to the remaining charge. This serves as a virtual back-up battery while minimising the risk of damage to the powerpack due to depletion.

NXG production is scheduled for 2011. The NXG will also feature REVA's patented drive-train technology and the Revive system. The two-seater sports car is expected to stand out for performance and speed.
