Mahindra Reva NXR launch to be followed by five electric cars

The Mahindra Reva NXR electric car is just two months away and already Mahindra is looking aggressive about it. As electric cars have meek future in the country, Mahindra has planned to launch five electric cars to meet the global demand for their no emission cars. Notably, Mahindra is basically an SUV maker and has an array of diesel cars including the most recent addition of Mahindra Quanto. The Reva NXR was unveiled at the Auto Expo held in New Delhi this year and since then all eyes are on it and it is seen as a Mahindra car that will change the way people move in India. But India is still not used to electric cars and has recently moved to diesel cars after remaining a loyal to petrol cars.

It is said that Mahindra is currently testing the electric technology on Mahindra Verito, Mahindra Gio and Mahindra Maxximo and hopes to launch a new car every year till 2016. Whatever be the line up or the hopes of Mahindra be, the experts do not have too much bullish opinion about the new electric car from Mahindra. Also, when the existing generation of Reva has a too few takers in the last 12 years. As per the information, over 4600 units of Reva were sold in these years and that includes over 1300 units which were exported to London and Norway. Thus one can presume that the car had too few takers and so a miraculous buying of the car cannot be expected now as well.

In addition to the lack of resources and infrastructure available for electric cars, the Reva will also be facing the too much priced car tag as well. The new Reva car will be priced around Rs 5 lakh or more and it will have zero maintenance for years altogether. But people look what they are getting at what price. Getting Reva NXR for Rs 5 lakh or so seems infeasible than getting a diesel car which will be more economical in the long run.
