Mahindra Reva's e2o sighted on Bangalore roads.

New Delhi, Feb. 19 -- While Mahindra and Mahindra waits for the Union budget to give a green signal to launch its ambitious electric car, the four-seat e2o, we had a chance to look at the vehicle parked on Bangalore outskirts.

We waited for the owner of the yet-to-be launched e2O to return so that we can have a drive; but were content to take photos of the parked car.

The car, on first looks is spacious for four people, but you still need to get to the backseat through the front doors. It is wider than the earlier generation of Reva cars; so that those drive it will have more leg space and don't sacrifice comfort for driving an eco-friendly car.

The four air-conditioning ventsA[sup.1] which comes in the top-end version, indicate that Mahindra has kept the backseat passengers in mind. The digital speedometer looks huge, while it has taken care to have two wipers so that the car can be used in all-weather conditions. The car has projector headlamps and tail lamps that are rectangular and simple pull handles on the door. The glove compartment looks big to store quite a few things inside.

The automatic gears will definitely bring down stress in a bumper-to-bumper traffic in a city like Bangalore, while the regenerative braking can recharge the batteries for that additional mile to travel.

It has a LED display, which we think is a dashboard. The E2O also has a regenerative braking system that conserves electricity and improves safety, while the dashboard has a number of added goodies, such as a rear camera and built-in maps, a report in livemint said.

But those who want storage space will continue to be disappointed, it has none except to store your power chord for the next recharge.
