Tata Nexon EV is officially launched in India for a price tag of Rs 13.99 lakhs (ex-showroom). The electric compact SUV is available in three trims across three colour options and will only be sold in 22 cities across India initially. The Tata Nexon EV comes as a much affordable alternative to the likes of MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona EV in the growing electric SUV segment.

In terms of appearance, the Nexon EV debuts a new styling update which will also be seen on the standard Nexon facelift. Part of Impact 2.0 design language are the sharper headlamps, clamshell bonnet and chrome-black slat for a grille which make the Nexon look much more upmarket. Tata’s three-point element is seen on the lower grille while a new set of alloys is also part of the update. At the rear, the clear lens taillamp gets a new LED lighting signature while the white strips of the older Nexon are finished in a blue hue. The exterior colour options are – Teal Blue, Glacier White and Moonlit Silver. On the inside, the Nexon EV sports an Altroz-sourced flat-bottom steering wheel and instrument cluster which, in the Nexon EV, gives out information like – charge level, driving range, battery consumption, turn-by-turn navigation and more. Tata is also providing a new ZConnect app suite with 35 connectivity features similar to the one available in Hyundai’s Venue. The Nexon EV is also the safest made-in-India electric SUV with a five-star safety rating at GNCAP crash tests. In terms of safety equipment, it comes loaded with dual airbags, ABS along with EBD and cornering stability control as standard.

Powering the Nexon EV is a three-phase permanent magnet synchronous motor that puts out 127bhp and 245Nm paired to a 30.2kWh lithium-ion and a liquid-cooled battery pack. The ARAI-certified range of the Nexon EV is 312km and it comes with IP67 certification. Charging options include a 3.3kW bundled charger that can charge the battery pack from 20-100% in eight hours, while a 25kW fast charger can charge the battery from 0-80% in 60 minutes.
