Northern Light Energy (NLE) would be the exclusive distributor for Reva's NXR and NXG cars in Iceland. NLE has a project for 2012 to develop infrastructure and services for electric vehicles in Iceland. NXR and the NXG were showcased by Reva at Frankfurt Auto Fair in September. The vehicles are expected to be launched in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

"The 2012 project is one of the most ambitious yet achievable transport electrification projects in the world today and we are pleased to be able to contribute our technologies and products," said Keith Johnston, President (European Operations), Reva.
