Mahindra Reva E20: Doubts pop up in mind
Pros : Compact design, excellent mileage, modern interior design
Cons : Not yet but seems not to be a family car, looking expensive
I am Akshay writing from New Delhi. Well, the much awaited electric car is now in the town. Mahindra Reva e2o, the first electric 4 seater passenger car seems to be offering good features but every person has some doubts in the mind before buying a car, so I have. First of all the price seems to be expensive. Reva E20 price which starts at 5.96 lakh does not stand by the features it is offering.
No doubt it is an economical electric car but it doesn’t mean we have to shell out extra bucks and compromise with comfort. Moreover some questions pops up in the mind like suppose I am in the traffic for more than 1 hour, does the battery discharges? Like if we often face such things when we ride a petrol or diesel car. How will the rear passengers enter the car when the door entry is only for the front passengers? What happen if I am in the middle of the road or in traffic and my battery drains off. Does it have any backup system or similar thing?
So these things and many more are matter of consideration before buying such cars. As far as Reva e2o mileage is concerned, it’s a fair deal company is offering. For a normal city commute, 100 kms in a single charge is enough. Also the company is offering modern information display which will guide the driver throughout the journey. It’s a compact size car which would not abide by conditions applied on a family car. But overall it’s a matter of time when we get to know more about it.
