Four adventurous women in a Tata HEXA set on a epic journey to commemorate 70 years of Independent India
24 Countries…24000 km… 70 days… 8 time-zones
Paving the way to create awareness on women empowerment, Dr. Najma Heptulla, Governor of Manipur, flagged off a team of four adventurous women – Meenakshi Aravind, Mookambika Rathinam, Ruckmani V and Priya Rajpal in a Tata HEXA, to complete the ‘XPD 24-70’ mission, from Imphal. With an endeavor to raise funds for the Rotary India Literacy Mission and to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Indian Independence, four women Rotarians have embarked on an all-women expedition from Coimbatore to London and yesterday marked their last stop in India.
Tata HEXA has been the vehicle of choice in this international epic journey. With an exceptional combination of design, comfort and off-road and on-road capabilities, the Tata HEXA Automatic variant has been sponsored to the team by Tata Motors. The Company has also provided service support to the team in this grueling journey.
According to Ms. Meenakshi Aravind, one of the four intrepid women, “We are very happy to be a part of Tata HEXA’s maiden voyage across international borders.”
Powered by the advanced next-gen 2.2L VARICOR 400 diesel engine, the Tata HEXA will deliver a class leading 400 Nm torque and 156 PS power. The HEXA’s ‘SUPER DRIVE MODES’ will help them seamlessly switch between the four different driving modes – Auto, Comfort, Dynamic and Rough Road, drive through uninhabited zones, non-tarred roads, rocky terrains, forests, streams, and dunes covering an average of 400 kms a day. The All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system is electronically controlled via an adaptive system by Borg Warner™, with the torque on demand feature. For this ultimate journey, the Tata HEXA has been equipped with accessories like a roof platform, a canopy, luggage bags, high lift jack, shovel, jerry can, a navigation unit and a wireless charger.
