Back in the day: Reva electric cars
16 years ago today, on July 2, 2005, Indian manufacturer Reva launched its first electric car in the market. The REVAi was a small, two door city car which aimed at starting the electric revolution in the country. The brand was later acquired by Mahindra & Mahindra, which later launched its version of the REVAi, the e2o. The Reva received 550 bookings from Britain after its initial launch.
