It was the cynosure of all eyes at the Prime Minister's Office at South Block, where ministers had gathered for a meeting of the Union Cabinet today, when National Conference leader and Minister for New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah showed up in the two-door electric car.
He showcased the blazing green Mahindra Reva NXR to those present like I&B Minister Ambika Soni and Deputy Chairman of Planning Commission Montek Singh Ahluwalia.
Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee was quick to jump into the driver's seat to get a feel of the car's interiors.
The eco-friendly car has solar panels on the roof and can run upto 100 km on a single charge. The Reva is produced by Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles Private Limited.
