  1. Mangalore and Udupi Districts have a virtual power outage
    epedimic, and therefore, unless the people in authority
    make efforts to ensure 24x7x365 days proper power supply,
    the Electric car will not attract local car lovers. Then again,
    the MESCOM is forever increasing the electric rates, and the
    government is forever increasing the tax and other surcharges.

    The traffic chaos cannot improve just because this TATA car
    runs on batteries. A car is a car, it and it defeats the volume
    of vehicles on the road, that are not engineered to absorb the
    present volume nor the future volume.
