Is this Bollywood's version of Back to the Future? An Indian company says it has plans for a sporty-looking electric vehicle that can go about 300 miles on a single charge. In a bit of a throwback, the car uses a lead-acid battery.

The company is called Supernova and its car is called, yes, the SNEV. Granted, it helps that the car is a two-seater with a fiberglass body (it looks like it comes from from Sterling Kit Cars) because that keeps the weight down to about 2,000 pounds. It's not exactly cheap. The company says it will price the EV at about $40,000. Supernova calls the EV "India's first green sports car" and says the car tops out at 100 miles per hour. Its sporty looks have already lured about 250 people to sign up for reservations. The car, which takes five hours to fully recharge, is also almost 90-percent recyclable. Production is said to start in late 2015.

EV-making news has been pretty limited out of India, though Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. has sporadically put out information of its Reva e2o. This past spring, Mahindra was said to be looking at Norway and Sri Lanka for possible sales of the EV. You can learn more about the SNEV at Supernova's Facebook page.
