Reva has been my favorite India company for a while now, for being determined in their efforts with their EV. And now their persistence is starting to pay dividends.
General Motors India and Reva Electric Car Company announced recently in New Delhi the signing of an agreement to cooperate in the development of electric vehicles for the India market.
GM India and Reva will jointly develop car platforms, electric vehicle technology and advanced vehicle control systems. Their goal is to create and launch an affordable small car for domestic consumers.
The two companies have begun feasibility studies of GM’s small vehicle platforms to host the electric technology. GM and Reva plan to announce more details about the vehicle soon and begin production in 2010.
