REVA Electric Car Company is an Indian carmaker which makes small electric vehicles sold in 24 countries across Europe and Asia. Reva plans on increasing their meager 3,000 total cars sold to a target of 30,000 per year.

Less expensive and more compact than the Nissan Leaf plug-in vehicle, Reva’s fully electric NXR has a similar range to the Leaf (150-160 km or 90-100 miles on a single charge) yet a lower top speed of 65 mph or 104 km/h compared to the Leaf’s 90 mph or 145 km/h.

Check out this CNN report on the REVA and other electric models from more established auto companies.
