Having just announced the coming availability of lithium ion power to their vehicles, the REVA Electric Car Company (RECC) is sending three of the new variants on the road with the Indian Climate Solutions Road Tour. Company founder and CTO, Chetan Maini, was at the send off and spoke about the Tour being a great opportunity for the company to "showcase its advanced technology to battle environmental issues."

These specially-prepared REVA L-ions each sport an eco-statement paint scheme as well as a solar-paneled roof which should add a few extra miles to the car's range. Speaking of range, Mangalorean.com states that these cars can go between 93 and 124 miles on a charge, somewhat further than the 75 miles that the REVA L-ions available for sale are said to be capable of. The trip will cover 3,500 kilometers (2,175 miles) and travel through 15 cities and is meant to raise awareness and convert that awareness into action. Hit the jump for video of a news spot featuring footage of the cars at the event and Mr. Maini talking about the new batteries and new sales markets.
