The Nexon EV Max has become the first EV to journey to Umling La.
The Tata Nexon EV Max has entered the India Book of Records for becoming the first EV to scale the Umling La Pass, the world’s highest motorable road, located at 19,024 feet above sea level. The journey to the highest motorable road in the world began from Leh for a team of drivers, and the record was set on 18th September 2022.
Tata hasn’t exactly revealed how much charge the Nexon EV Max consumed in that journey, but it is a fair estimate that it would have had to be charged fully at least once, or even twice. As far as the range of the electric SUV goes, it can do 437kms on a single charge, according to ARAI. The real-world number will be lower than that, especially in the mountainous region of Ladakh.
The Nexon EV Max is currently the least expensive electric car sold in India, that has a range of over 400kms. So, while the feat of scaling Umling La can be achieved in other electric cars as well, the Nexon EV Max is one of the most accessible ones to do so in.
