First unveiled in India at the Auto Expo earlier this year, the Nissan Evalia also called the e-NV200 is a hugely promising multipurpose vehicle (MPV), which has proven its mettle overseas (as the NV200). This is one of the most exciting cars to have graced the EV scene. I expect the price of the vehicle to be around Rs. 15,00,000/- (double the price of E2O) and I expect it to be one of the best selling cars even overtaking the Nissan Leaf.
A bout of heavy rain in Qatar, where i live, got the streets and underpasses flooded which got me thinking… rains are not necessarily nice... it can mess up people's homes and cars too. That the biggest enemy of an Electric Vehicle would be the rains and floods… But what if your Electric car can float on water and even wade through it almost like a boat? What then?
Local Motors says this will be the first 3D-printed electric car, and it plans to build it right on the floor of the 2014 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago this September. Local Motors doesn't like to do things the normal way.The car company based around an online community of consumer-designers is once again trying to shake up the manufacturing process with a 3D-printed electric car.
Bhutan is the worlds most 'happiest' country. They are about to get a lot happier now!
This will happen, if Bhutan can achieve its goal of becoming a zero-emissions nation. The landlocked Himalayan country wants to replace their petrol taxi's and cars with electric cars.
With aggressive electric vehicle policies by the Bhutan government, Nissan and Mahindra REVA are rushing to the mountains!
Electric Cars can be designed to allow a fast battery swap, exchanging your battery for a fully charged battery in less than half the time it takes to refill a gas tank. This offers Tesla Model S drivers an even faster option when recharging while driving long distances.

Mr. Johnson wrote a blog highlighting the poor sales of the Mahindra e2o electric car, over the last year.
It’s a nice article and he does a great job of highlighting some key challenges facing the Indian EV industry.
This blog is my take on the same.
A Chinese made 'zero emissions' electric bus is seen on the roads in India's IT city! The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) has started trial runs of an e-bus provided by the Chinese automobile giant - BYD
Earlier Delhi 'tested' a CNG-Electric hybrid bus manufactured by Tata in 2010. But nothing came of out that exercise. It remains to be seen if, BMTC will actually procure these cool electric buses and add them to its fleet.
This is a baby step towards sustainable mass transit, which could save huge money on oil imports and cleanup the air in our cities.
