World’s highest EV charging station opens up in Ladakh now

Ladakh is working towards sustainable tourism practices to preserve the environment.

The world’s highest motorable passes welcome clean mobility

Do you have an EV (Electric Vehicle) and you are also a travel enthusiast looking to explore Ladakh? You are one perfect news away. Along the Manali-Leh Ladakh route, now you can easily find 18 EV charging stations. And among these 18 charging stations, 15 of them are set up 10,000 feet – 14000 feet above sea level. Now, how crazy is this? Also, let’s not forget that these stations are set up on the way to the world’s highest motorable passes in the world. Moreover, it has become feasible and easy to explore Ladakh now with your electric vehicle.

Electric Vehicles charging stations in Ladakh

This program was set as a joint venture between two companies by Shuchi Anant Virya. The venture was between the companies EV-based mobility solutions provider of Lithium Urban Technologies and Fourth Partner Energy, a solar energy company for commercial and industrial businesses. This company successfully managed to introduce EV connectivity by installing a mix of Type-I and Type-II AC chargers to the route. Now, how will this help? So, majorly this will help two, three, and four-wheelers to easily charge their vehicle. Also, this will encourage non EV users to switch to more sustainable energy in the future.

As more and more people are attracted towards the clean, scenic route location, the environment falls into danger. The danger is majorly due to the air pollution caused by fossil fuels.

The founder of Lithium Urban Technologies, Sanjay Krishnan said that their next 36-48 months goal is to convert 50% of the vehicular traffic to EVs. Also, another goal is to also reduce tailpipe emissions in the Ladakh regions. He also said that they want to see a positive shift in the behavior of people towards how EV’s are perceived. ‘We want to address all the concerns around the availability of proper resources of energy for long trips.’
