Tata Motors revealed the Nexon EV last month and it has been one of the most anticipated models from the brand due to its nature. It is the first vehicle based on the Ziptron technology that will spawn the future electric cars and has plenty of differences over its regular IC-engined sibling both inside and out.
The electric SUV is part of a slew of launches planned by Tata this year and it has been priced aggressively at Rs. 13.99 lakh (ex-showroom, pan India) – just Rs. 1.2 lakh costlier than the top-spec standard Nexon. With eight-year/1.6 lakh km standard warranty for electric motor and battery pack, the Nexon EV is claimed capable of 312 km range on a single charge.
Underneath the skin, the Tata Nexon EV is equipped with a 30.2 kWh Li-ion battery pack and a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor with nominal voltage of 320 V. The power output stands at 129 PS and the peak torque is 245 Nm. The electric motors drive only the front wheels of this e-SUV.
It is claimed capable of reaching 100 kmph from standstill in 9.9 seconds and 0-60 kmph in 4.6 seconds. The Nexon EV is certified to charge from 20 per cent to 100 per cent in eight hours using a 15 A charger while a fast charger will drastically reduce the charging time. It can replenish back from zero to 80 per cent in just sixty minutes.
