I would like to see this car making a grand worldwide success. I would like to suggest an idea to my dear friend Samrat Navle, who is an Industrial Designer with Reva Electric.
Provide Battery Change Points A big trouble with this car is a short running distance. Many times the commute becomes unpredictable - its may not be just from home to office and back home. Reva or their franchisees may have to invest in a supporting infrastructure that helps in a quick recharge. Now, this quick recharge is not actually a recharge, but a quick change of batteries.
A set of batteries are kept fully charged at a refill station which can be a gas station. A car can quickly change the set of batteries at a cost. This will ensure that a car is always charged, batteries never have to be bought (even once in three years) by the car owner, and gas stations have another revenue stream.
A change in car design for quick change of batteries (a worker must NOT unwire and rewire the connections each time) and pre-charged batteries at major gas stations in the city will drive Reva sales.
