It's much more than that, of course. The next-gen baby of Chetan Maini, Reva's founder and current chief technology officer, has features that allow solar charging of its lithium ion batteries, is more efficient and powerful than the existing model, has two more seats and is capable of delivering a range of 100 km per charge.
It also has 10 on-board computers and a host of electronics to run the car, although Maini declined to be specific about those for now, saying it was too close to the launch.
Apparently, the battery of the car is powerful enough to power a house with a TV, two fans and two lights for a day when there is a power failure. Plus, its operating and maintenance costs are exceedingly low. The car has already received positive reviews at several motor shows, including the ones at Frankfurt and Delhi.
