The Reva-NXG electric car. Launched in concept form in the UK this week. Indian tech from the Simputer people heads West. Silently. Touchscreen dashboard, 125 mile range, 75 mph max speed, 6 hour recharge. Needs a lid to keep out our rain, but doesn’t look half bad from here. [Thanks Dave!]
The car is fitted with a “wireless tablet,” an embedded appliance that integrates into a high resolution single touch-screen display system all dashboard functions such as speed, state of charge, range and critical sensor inputs as well as personal communication tools such as GPS-based in-vehicle navigation, a GPRS modem for internet and e-mail and MP3 music.
