Reva, the Indian company that builds Jeremy Clarkson’s favorite car, the G-Wiz, is preparing for its second act next week in Frankfurt. The company will unveil two new upcoming models and a new charging technology. The first of the new models is the NXR, and it is billed as a four seat hatchback “family car.” Judging from the image above, it will have to be a very small family, since the NXR doesn’t look any bigger than the “four seat” G-Wiz.
The second model is a two-seat, removable roof sportster called the NXG. The NXR is due to launch in various world markets for 2010 while the NXG should arrive a year later.
The new technology that Reva will announce is REVive. The company claims that this will address range anxiety by allowing customers to call or text Reva for “instant remote recharge.” We’re not sure how this will work, but given the trouble that AT&T has had just sending picture messages to iPhones, we’ll be curious to see how Reva manages to send enough electrons to keep a car going without a plug. Let’s just say we’re not holding our breath on this one. Check out the complete press release after the jump, and thanks to everyone who sent this in!
