Tata Motors today unveiled Electric SUV – the Nexon EV which is powered by the cutting-edge Ziptron technology for fast charging capability, extended battery life and class leading safety features. Scheduled to be launched in January 2020, the Nexon EV is expected to be priced between INR 15 to 17 Lakhs. It will be available in three varaints of XZ+ LUX, XZ+ (both in 2 tone) and XM (in single tone) and will come in three colour options – Signature Teal Blue colour, Moonlit Silver and Glacier White. It will carry a warranty of 8 years or 1,60,000 kms (whichever is earlier) on battery & motor.
Nexon EV is equipped with a powerful and high-efficiency 129 PS permanent-magnet AC motor powered by a high capacity 30.2 kWh lithium-ion battery. The motor produces 245 Nm of instant torque from a standstill, enabling Nexon EV to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in just 9.9 seconds. The EV comes with a best-in-industry dust and water proof battery pack which meets IP67 standards. This high-density battery pack is liquid-cooled to excel in Indian conditions. The battery pack is placed underneath the vehicle body, giving the SUV a center of gravity more akin to that of a sedan or a hatchback, ensuring maximum stability and excellent dynamic performance on winding roads as claimed by Tata Motors.
This SUV comes with two drive mode options – DRIVE & SPORT. It utilizes smart drive tech features – Regenerative Braking to charge the battery while coasting. It also has features of Hill Ascent & Descent Assist to make driving on slopes more convenient.
Nexon EV is claimed to deliver more than 300 kms on a single charge with zero emissions. When plugged into a Fast DC Charger, the Nexon EV will replenish 80% battery capacity within 60 minutes. In addition, the Nexon EV can be charged from any 15 amp plug point.
Nexon EV offers 35 Mobile App based connected features, ranging from remote commands, vehicle tracking, driving behavior analytics, navigation and remote diagnostics. The ZConnect App enables owners to locate the nearby charging points, TML service stations, set-up speed alerts, track vehicle location and many more features.
The Nexon EV has the IMPACT DESIGN 2.0 language. It has slim, wide grille-cum-lamp entity which is underscored by the Tata Motors Humanity Line running from lamp to lamp, adding a touch of premiumness through its chrome treatment and more three-dimensional form. Completing the new design of the front end is the bumper with its sporty central grille, detailed with the Tata Motors signature Tri-Arrows.
On the inside, the Nexon EV cabin comes with modern design, spacious interiors, and premium sound management to deliver a comfortable tranquil drive. The vehicle also comes with a 7 inch Harman infotainment system with support of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
This car has been rigorously tested across 1 million kms across the toughest terrains in India, covering high altitudes, unpaved roads, steep gradients and under extreme weather conditions.
The all new Nexon EV can be pre-booked for an amount of Rs 21,000 starting December 20, 2019, either through company’s official website or through select authorized dealers.
