Reva Introduces NXG Electric City Car
15 April 2005
GoinGreen, a retailer of electric cars in the UK, showcased the new Reva NXG electric concept car in London. GoinGreen has been marketing another Reva EV—the G-Wiz—since May 2004.
Created by the Reva Electric Car Company (RECC) of Bangalore, India, the new NXG made its debut last week at EVS-21 in Monaco.
The two-seater is powered by a 37kW AC induction motor with 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) torque driving the front wheels. Regenerative braking recharges the sodium nickel chloride batteries during operation.
The battery pack has a capacity of 18 kWhr, and a plug-in recharge time of 6 hours.
The NXG has a range of 125 miles (200 km) per charge and a top speed of 75 mph (120 km/h).
The car also features a high-resolution single touch-screen display system featuring all vehicle dashboard functions as well as personal communication tools such as a GPS navigation system, a GPRS modem for internet and email access and an MP3 music player.
Petrol is about 40kWh per (UK) gallon. At 15% efficiency that's about 6kWh. So the NGX's 18kWh is about three gallons of gas. Seems about right for 125 mile range.

Perhaps a silly question, but does it come with a roof? Is it convertible, or just roof-less?

From what I can tell—that’s it. It is a concept, after all. :-) The production G-Wiz comes with a roof.

Electric autos are great, & I'm happy to see prototypes & commercial options, but why are the designers sticking with the Tonka & Dinky-toys themes? They won't really sell until the designs emulate something less like a kid's toy and more like a Spider or MG.

I found another press release that said it would indeed
have a removable roof. They now claim it will go into
production, but don't they all?
I'd bet that the fancy dashboard will get binned. Too pricey.

One comment here questions whether the Reva NXG will go into production. Well, you have to note that it's called "Next Generation" for a good reason - REVA already have an electric car in production, the G-Wiz, on sale in the UK plus India and neighbouring countries. I have to agree that I'd rather have a solid roof and a decent heater! The G-Wiz retails for £6,999 and the NXG will be pricier.
