Tata Motors’ trusted little
hatchback, the Tata Nano, proved that it’s no dainty set of wheels when Dr.
Varun Vagish, an adventurist and car enthusiast from Asansol, West Bengal took
the Nano to the Base Camp of Siachen Glacier in Ladakh, the highest battlefield
This feat was accomplished
with Tata Nano in 20 days covering 7,000 kms, in a journey which started from
Asansol, West Bengal. The car first made its way to the world's highest
motorable pass - Khardong La (18,380 feet) and several other passes like Chang
La, Zozi La, Fotu La and Namik La.
During this epic journey, Vagish traversed the most rugged terrains and
erratic weather. The Nano triumphed against all odds and emerged a winner at
the end of this test of endurance and reliability.
According to Vagish,
"Being a rear wheel drive car, Tata Nano was a mobile powerhouse while
climbing the steep inclines of the highest mountain passes. Lowest turning
radius also helped me to easily manoeuvre the vehicle on sharp curves. It just
took 30 minutes to climb the last 16 kilometres stretch from North-Pulu to
Khardung-la, world’s highest motorable pass. In the plains, it was driven more
than 800 kms in a day at few instances. During the whole journey, I felt
immense respect for the whole team of Tata Motors who conceptualised and shaped
this beautiful vehicle."
The Nano has put India on the
world motoring map by demonstrating innovation and frugal engineering. The
latest version of the car, GenX Nano, is a stylish, efficient and a smart city
car. The new GenX Nano comes with advanced technological features which further
strengthens its positioning, making it a perfect smart city car, said a release
from Tata Motors.
