The vehicle travelled a total distance of 285 km through the plains of the valley and the rough terrains of Solukhumbu. The vehicle was charged at Okhaldhunga. This Multi-Purpose Vehicle is available in 5-seater and 7-seater variants. It is powered by 50.3 kWh NCM battery and provides a range of 310 km on single charge.

“Nepal’s diverse geography comes along with bumpy roads and potholes which has made ground clearance a major factor that influences the customers’ purchase decision while buying an Electric Vehicle. Since a lot of queries from the potential consumers are regarding the performance in rough terrains, we wanted to give assurance to the public by clearing their doubts on this” said Mr. Sahil Shrestha, the CEO of Cimex Inc.
