Tata has unveiled a slick looking city car at the Geneva motorshow. Tata Megapixel is a global Range Extended Electric Vehicle (REEV) which uses electricity as fuel for the most part and relies on gasoline to recharge the battery. Tata Megapixel can go up to  900kms on a  single tank of fuel.

Megapixel is powered by a Lithium Ion Phosphate Battery which can be recharged by an onboard 325 cc single-cylinder gasoline generator. The battery will power the four electric motors of the four wheels.
