Meanwhile, the Reva NXG is a slightly sportier car. It is a two-seater with a targa roof, but won't go on sale until 2011.

Reva will also showcase its new REVive telematics technology. The system allows customers to call or text for an instant recharge should they run out of battery power.

Jeesz Louise, when are automakers gonna realize that energy-efficient can be sexy. Now you're only gonna be perceived as being cheap, is what TopGear's Jeremy Clarkson would comment. Now the Aptera is a good example of almost outlandishly sexy and frugal. But the guys who invented this do have a safety (perception) and practicality (only two seats) issue I guess. The three-seat Space-Efficient Vehicle is better.

Please explain the advantage of being narrower at the back than at the front? Aerodynamics aside this is a complete waste of space. The space the 'car' requires is still limited by its maximum width. How is this "space efficient" in any way other than parking two side by side nose to tail?

I suppose the car is a horrible green to be natural looking, but why make the shape so odd?
