Being a CO2 emission free vehicle, the REVAi is a car that loves the environment and offers its owner a great driving experience. Akshaye's REVA is customized for his use and comes with all the accessories that he would need. With its range of 80kilometeres and a maximum speed of 80 km/h, it will ensure Akshaye gets around the city efficiently.'
