Gravton enters the Asia Book of Records as the industry’s first, demonstrating that the Quanta EV is a performance-driven vehicle that’s capable of achieving the K2K feat previously only achieved by a few petrol-powered vehicles.
On the 13th of September 2021, the K2K ride began in Kanyakumari, and ended on the 20th of September 2021, in Khardung La, covering a distance of 4011.9 km in 164 hours and 30 minutes (6.5 days). The team rode the bike nonstop from Kanyakumari to Manali, covering 3400 km and stopping in Manali for the night to adapt. The Quanta’s thermal management systems were designed to work efficiently at Ladakh’s low temperatures; it was able to glide through the rugged terrains without any hassles or loss of performance.
Parshuram Paka, Founder & CEO of Gravton Motors, said, ‘We are thankful to Asia Book of Records team for recognising our efforts and conferring the award to us. This marks a great road ahead for Gravton as we intend to design and develop many more performance driven EV vehicles from our new facility.’
Also, Gravton has begun construction of its new manufacturing facility in Cherlapally, Hyderabad. By the end of 2022, the company plans to build a huge complex.
