Tata Motors have also rolled out an extensive campaign titled #TheUltimateElectricDrive, featuring Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar, where they will be zipping from Manali to Leh, in a Nexon EV. As a part of this journey, Nexon EV smoothly traversed some of the toughest terrains in India, covering the high altitude Himalayan passes with unpaved roads and steep gradients, with limited charging infrastructure and under extreme weather conditions. This campaign thus highlights Nexon EV’s ability to break existing barriers such as range anxiety, lack of charging infrastructure and performance capabilities.
