  • Tata Nexon will land in the Indian market in early 2020.
  • It will be priced in the bracket of INR 14 -16 lakh.
  • The Tata Nexon offers a full-charge range of over 300 kilometers.

Tata Motors has revealed the Nexon EV in the Indian market today. It is a fully-electric version of the famous Nexon sub-compact SUV. It has been slated for Q1 2020 launch and will be made available in three trims including XM, XZ+, and XZ+ Luxury.

The Tata Nexon EV flaunts a completely refreshed exterior design. The company has even claimed that the Nexon EV will ‘lead the way in terms of exteriors’ for the upcoming Nexon (facelift). This simply means that similar exterior details can be expected on the new 2020 Nexon.

The Nexon EV features a completely new design upfront with slimmer projector headlamps which give it a more authoritative look. The earlier seen radiator grille has been covered using a gloss black cladding with a centrally positioned Tata Logo. On the lower side, the all-electric SUV uses a completely new and bolder bumper housing a sharp-looking tri-arrow lower grille. The bumper also features angular C-shaped inserts on the fog lamps which lends the E-SUV a more muscular look.

Coming over to the sides, the overall profile remains unaltered and it still boasts a nice-looking sloping roofline which makes it look very appealing. Moreover, the alloy wheels are new and so are the tail lamps which give it a slightly distinctive look. There is also a remastered rear bumper that gels well with the overall profile of the vehicle.

Coming on to the inside, the fully-electric Tata Nexon features a semi-digital instrument panel. This unit uses an analogue speedometer, while the rest of the information such as range, battery levels, ampere rating and more is displayed in a digital format. Hints of electric blue coloring have been imprinted on to the interiors of the Nexon EV.

As for the dimensions, the Nexon EV’s length measures 3,995 mm, width measures 1,811 mm, and height measures 1,607 mm. Its wheelbase spans 2,498 mm, and the ground clearance stands at 205 mm.

The Tata Nexon EV sources its power from a 30.2 kWh battery pack, this battery unit has been rated to clear IP 67 safety standards. This unit is used to power an electric motor which is good enough to churn out 129 PS of maximum power and 254 Nm of peak torque. It delivers a maximum range (MIDC) of more than 300 km in a single charge. Moreover, it propels the vehicle past the 0-60 kmph mark in just 4.6 seconds while 0-100 kmph mark arrives in just 9.9 seconds. These figures sound promising for an SUV but electric vehicles generally have similar acceleration figures thanks to the instantaneous delivery of torque.

The Tata Nexon EV can be driven in two modes – Drive and Sport. The former, as the name says, delivers maximum range while limiting down the performance, while the latter promises an aggressive performance, but the overall range may be compromised. Tata Motors claims that it has tested the Nexon EV throughout the length and breadth of the country, covering an overall test distance of more than 1 million kilometers.

The charging system on the Tata Nexon EV is CCS2 compatible. It takes close to 60 minutes to charge the battery up to 80% using the DC fast charger, at the same time, a regular AC charger takes about 8-9 hours to fully charge the battery. The company is yet to disclose more information on the same.

The Tata Nexon EV will be made available with an 8 years/1,60,000 km warranty. The same powertrain is also expected to power Tata’s future electric vehicles, including the Tata Altroz EV which may come out sometime in 2021.

As for now, there is no direct rival for the Nexon EV in the market. When launched, expect its price range to fall in the bracket of INR 14 -16 lakh. At this price point, this will be the most affordable electric SUV present in the market since its nearest rivals such as MG ZS EV and Kona Electric are way costlier.

Confirmed: Tata Altroz Will be Launching in India on 22 January 2020
