It seems that Mahindra Reva has already been developing some racing DNA for the future in the form of the Halo Sports car. Unveiled at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, it represents the kind of work that the company is doing in a direction that Chetan calls ‘making the EV look really good’.
It has a range of around 200kmph with a 160kmph top speed and a 0-100kmph time of less than eight seconds. The designs of both the outside and inside are revolutionary and represent the future of Mahindra’s EV range.
Being that big of a car person himself, Chetan has a range of specially prepped Revas which he uses to travel around Bengaluru. These Revas have larger batteries, tuned suspension, bigger wheels and obviously look much cooler than the normal car.
Some pundits have predicted that in the face of growing environmental concerns, motor racing will become an anachronism. However, with the concept of Formula E and work into vehicles like the Halo there is hope. Literally like a giant hiding in plain sight, we believe that Mahindra Reva has a plan for the future and will strike when the time is right with a large range of products and solutions.
