The most anticipated Tata Nexon EV has been finally debuted by the brand ahead of its official launch. The brand is expected to launch its second electric product in January 2020 though the pre-bookings for the EV are now open for the customers at a token amount of INR 21,000. The Nexon EV is the first-ever car to be debuted by the brand that features the new-age Ziptron electric powertrain technology. The customers can avail the electric SUV in three variants namely: XM, XZ+ and XZ+ Lux.
Powering the upcoming electric SUV is a permanent magnet AC motor that will draw power from a 30.2kWh lithium-ion liquid-cooled battery with an IP67 rating. The company-claimed range of the Tata Nexon EV stands at 300km for a single charge of the battery which can be charged up to 80% with just a fast charger in just 60 minutes.
The battery can be fully charged in 8 hours with the help of a home charger while the EV has been further equipped with a Battery Management System (BMS). The upcoming EV from the brand is capable to generate a maximum power of 129HP and a peak torque of 245Nm while every minute of fast charging will offer the SUV with a range of 4km. Tata claims that the Nexon EV can sprint from 0-60kph in just 4.6sec while it can touch 100kph in 9.9sec from a standstill.
Coming to the overall design language, the Tata Nexon EV looks almost identical to the fuel-powered Nexon. The EV features the same humanity-line front grille which is further mated to razor-edged headlights surrounded by LED DRLs. The brand has equipped the upcoming Tata Nexon EV with all-new alloy wheel design in addition to offering a new paint scheme by the name Electric Teal.
Inside the cabin, the upcoming EV features a Tata Altroz-inspired 7.0-inch semi-digital instrument cluster. The high-spec variants of the electric SUV will further get all the premium features offered to the high-end variants of the standard Nexon. The brand has equipped the EV with a best-in-class safety kit that has been offered a 5-star rating from Global NCAP.
Once launched in India, the Nexon EV is expected to get a huge premium over its standard variant. One can expect the brand to offer the electric SUV a starting price tag of around INR 15 lakh (ex-showroom).
