1450km, approx.
From Mumbai to Faridabad.
I've done this many times, in my Honda City iDTEC as well as my Scorpio.

Did this once in our old CNG WagonR as well. Dog-hit post Udaipur in the middle of the night, busted radiator, spent all day sleeping in the car while it was getting fixed. So that one does not count

The return journey from Nagpur to Bangalore took 15 mins less though.

I just completed a cross country loop across USA from Phoenix, AZ to Augusta, ME and back to Phoenix. Made a lot of detours. 7000+ miles in 3.5 weeks covering 20 states. One of the more significant road trips I've ever done hands down.

Default Re: Longest Drives!

The longest drive which I did in single day was from Chandigarh to Jhansi (712 kms) via Delhi, Yamuna Expressway, Agra, Gwalior. This drive was a part of the Chandigarh-Hyderabad-Chandigarh road trip which I did in March 2014. Did the same route in a day while returning also. While returning drove from Jhansi to Chandigarh on a tank full without refuelling on the way. The car was Swift Dzire Vxi (Petrol) and the journey time was 12 hours. The entire drive was smooth except the heavy traffic encountered while crossing Delhi and Agra and also the bad condition of highway between Jhansi and Gwalior, which increased the journey time by nearly 1 hr 30 mins. The best part of the drive was continuously cruising @ 140 km/h for 1 hour on the Yamuna Expressway.

Wow! One of my dream journeys. I want to do this at least once. I might get back to you for more details on this when the 'right' time comes.

My longest has been 500 kms from Delhi to Palampur, which I have done countless times as we have family there. The longest time taken was 12 hours back in 2004 (Maruti 800), while the shortest was 7 hours last weekend (Fortuner).
