What do you think of the Reva?

Hi, I'm looking for an extremely low cost electric car. The Reva range from India seem to be the cheapest, but are widely unavailable in Ireland. What would you recommend?

Our answer:

Hi Luke,

No, I wouldn’t recommend it – it’s a totally unknown quantity in a European context and we haven’t driven it so can’t compare it to electric cars already sold here. Added to which it’s hardly cheap – €11,500 for a new one. I’d say you’d be much better off with a good second hand Nissan Leaf or Renault Zoe, both of which are excellent cars. Or better still, have a look at buying new – both Nissan and Renault are keen to keep their electric cars moving and there are some very keen deals on offer.
