Tata Motors’ electric SUV, Nexon EV, will embark on a challenging journey from Kashmir to Kanyakumari (K2K). Starting 25th February, the Nexon EV will traverse through 4000 km in 4 days in a non-stop drive (stops to be made only for charging the vehicle), to create the record for the fastest K2K drive by an EV.
While Tata Motors has enhanced the range of the Nexon EV to 453 kms for a stress-free experience, Tata Power has systematically enhanced highway charging infrastructure across the country, making public charging omnipresent and easily accessible.
On this journey, the Nexon EV will cut through the harsh weather conditions and a multitude of difficult terrains of the Indian subcontinent. This exercise is aimed at showcasing the prowess of the Nexon EV in managing high speed and long-distance travel and also highlight the availability of public charging networks through the length and breadth of the country.
Commenting on this exciting expedition, Vivek Srivatsa, Head, Marketing, Sales and Service Strategy, Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., said, “Being a new evolving technology, it is important to demonstrate the capabilities and possibilities of EVs in real world and in real time conditions. By setting out on this ambitious journey with the Nexon EV, we want to inspire existing and prospective EV owners by offering them conclusive proof of the benefits of the Nexon EV’s long range, accompanied by the growing charging stations, installed by our ecosystem partners at Tata Power.”
“We are excited to kick-start this enthralling journey with the Nexon EV, offering an enhanced range of 453 km, in which a team of auto enthusiasts, EV believers along with my colleagues and I will be navigating through 4000 km from North to the South of India, in the least possible time. We are aiming at clocking 1000 kms per day and I am sure that the Nexon EV will just breeze through. I am confident that this K2K drive will boost EV adoption in India, making it a mainstream choice for buyers,” he added.
With its inherent capabilities and ‘go anywhere’ attitude, the Nexon EV is a perfect partner for this remarkable expedition as it provides an electrifying performance coupled with an indulgent smooth driving experience. Not only does it offer more range and power but also supports fast charging, facilitating uninterrupted long-distance travel with ease.
