  • Tata Nexon EV to attempt the record of fastest drive from Kashmir to Kanyakumari for an EV.

  • The long-range variant of the Nexon EV, the EV Max, will be used for this feat. 

  • The non-stop journey will be flagged off on February 25.

  • Rest stops will be taken for recharging the vehicle only.

  • It will cover 4,000 km in four days, travelling north to south.

  • Tata Nexon EV Max boasts an ARAI-claimed range of 453km.

The Tata Nexon EV Max, the long-range variant of the homemade electric SUV, is set to embark on an epic non-stop journey from one of the northernmost parts of India to its southernmost tip. Set to commence on February 25, the drive will take the eSUV from the beautiful mountains of Kashmir to the sunny beaches of Kanyakumari and will also attempt to enter the record books for the fastest K2K (Kashmir To Kanyakumari) drive by an EV. 

For all the advances made by EVs, there’s still a sustained narrative that seems to loom over them: that EVs aren’t poised for any long trips, let alone cross-country trips, as their range depletes faster on open roads while doing higher speeds. So, to ward off these prejudices, the journey isn’t just about showcasing the capabilities of the Tata Nexon EV, but also about promoting the adoption of electric vehicles in India and showcasing the strength of the charging infrastructure across the country. 

The route for this non-stop journey will cover a distance of 4,000 kilometres in four days and will take the Tata Nexon EV Max through some of the most scenic routes in India by covering almost 1,000 km each day. So given that this is a non-stop journey where rest stops will be limited to only when the car is being recharged, the person piloting the vehicle should also have decent time to juice up their batteries as well. It sure will be a tedious drive but marking a record doesn’t come easy now, does it?

Helping the Nexon EV Max achieve this record will be its 40.5kWh battery pack that powers the 143PS/250N electric motor. Thanks to a recent software update, this setup now boasts an ARAI-claimed range of 453km. 50kW DC fast charging compatibility allows the battery to be recharged from 0-80 percent in just 56 minutes.
