World’s Highest EV Charging Station Opens In Spiti Valley

The EV Charging Station at Kaza was inaugurated by two women bikers riding a pair of TVS iQube Electrics

Another major milestone in India’s fast developing EV infrastructure comes in, as Pune-based startup goEgo Network opens the world’s highest EV charging station at Kaza, in Spiti Valley. Situated at a height of 3,800 meters above sea level, the charging facility has two Bharat AC and Dual Socket Type chargers installed. The facility is located at Hotel Dayzor and can charge both electric cars and scooters.

The facility was inaugurated by two women bikers riding a pair of TVS iQube electric scooters. In their course, the riders had to ride through varying terrains including asphalt, rocks, gravel and boulders. The Manali-Kaza route passing through the Kumzum-La pass, if you might remember, is highly reputed among bikers. This route could soon rank among the top-picks for EVs as well.

The terrains and temperatures were initially expected to cause some trouble to all-electric powertrains, something which was proved otherwise after the inaugural run. goEgo has joined hands with TVS Motor Company to set up and promote EV infrastructure in India. The initiative goes hand in hand with the government’s vision of going all-electric by 2030.

goEgo has plans of installing more EV charging facilities in the Himalayas and in other destinations across the country.
