On the occasion, the airport authorities announced that MIA also plans to set up two electric vehicle charging stations in the parking lot. In fact Mangaluru International Airport has already installed 60kW DC, CCS2 Fast Charger at Island No. 4 near Flag Post.
MIA will use this charging point to charge its electric car fleet and allow public and commercial fleet operators to charge their EVs. MIA says switching to electric vehicles will curb carbon emissions.
This will result in a reduction in the carbon footprint emanating from the airport facility. In line with its net zero and green initiative, Mangaluru International Airport will replace all its combustion-powered vehicles with electric vehicles by March 2025 and MIA’s main target is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2029.
On the other hand, talking about the Nexon EV of Tata Motors, only last month, Tata introduced its Nexon EV with some new features along with a new Nexon EV Prime name. The Tata Nexon EV range gets some additional features from the Nexon EV Max under the prime moniker model.
As a feature addition, the Tata Nexon EV Prime comes with features like multiple region modes, cruise control, smartwatch connectivity and i-TPMS. It is worth noting that these new features have also been rolled out to existing Tata Nexon EV owners through a software update.
Talking about the new long range version of the Tata Nexon EV, the Tata Nexon EV Max is being sold in three color options – Daytona Grey, Pristine White and Intensity-Teal. Its intensity-teal color option is exclusively offered only for the new Tata Nexon EV Max.
Potential customers can choose this car in a total of two variants XZ + and XZ + Lux. However, the company has given two charging options with both these variants, which include 3.3kW and 7.2kW AC fast charger. The company has launched Nexon EV Max in the market with a bigger battery pack.
