To create awareness on women empowerment, Dr. Najma Heptulla, Governor of Manipur, flagged off a team of four adventurous women – Meenakshi Aravind, Mookambika Rathinam, Ruckmani V and Priya Rajpal in a Tata Hexa, to complete the ‘XPD 24-70’ mission, from Imphal. With an endeavor to raise funds for the Rotary India Literacy Mission and to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Indian Independence, four women Rotarians have embarked on an all-women expedition from Coimbatore to London and yesterday marked their last stop in India.
The Tata Hexa has been the vehicle of choice in this international epic journey. The Tata Hexa Automatic variant has been sponsored to the team by Tata Motors. The company has also provided service support to the team in this journey. According to Ms. Meenakshi Aravind, one of the four women, “Tata Hexa’s maiden voyage across international borders and we are very happy to be a part of this.”
Powered by the 2.2-litre VARICOR 400 diesel engine, the Tata Hexa delivers a class leading 400 Nm of torque and 156 PS of power. The Hexa’s ‘SUPER DRIVE MODES’ include four different driving modes – Auto, Comfort, Dynamic and Rough Road, while the car’s All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system is electronically controlled via an adaptive system by Borg Warner, with the torque on demand feature. For this journey, the Tata Hexa has been equipped with accessories like a roof platform, a canopy, luggage bags, high lift jack, shovel, jerry can, a navigation unit and a wireless charger.
