"We are exploring to set up contract manufacturing
facilities in the overseas market, specially in the Europe and
US," Reva Electric Car Company Deputy Chairman and Chief

"We have invested around Rs 30 crore for the first phase
of the new plant and we will continue to invest more for step
by step expansion of the plant once it becomes operational,"
