Long-range Tata Nexon EV to debut in India by April
Tata Motors will launch the long-range version of its Nexon EV in India by April. It will be sold alongside the current model. The new variant will come with a 40kWh battery, a 6.6kW AC charger, and shall deliver a range of over 400km per charge. New features like Electronic Stability Program and selectable modes for the regenerative braking system will also be offered.
- The Tata Nexon EV is quite a popular electric car in India and the introduction of its long-range version will raise its appeal among buyers.
- New features, minute cosmetic changes, and a better range should allow the four-wheeler to rack up decent sales in the market. It will take on rivals such as Hyundai KONA Electric and MG ZS EV.
The long-range Tata Nexon EV will sport a muscular hood, sleek projector headlights, a narrow black grille, and a wide air dam. On the sides, it will be flanked by roof rails, indicator-mounted ORVMs, blacked-out B-pillars, flared wheel arches, and redesigned alloy wheels. A shark-fin antenna, LED taillights, and a window wiper will grace the rear end of the four-wheeler.
The long-range iteration of the Tata Nexon EV will pack an electric motor and a 40kWh battery pack. The setup will allow the vehicle to promise a range of over 400km on the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) test cycle.
The long-range Tata Nexon EV is likely to have a spacious 5-seater cabin, featuring a power steering wheel, automatic climate control, parking sensors, and key-less entry. Multiple airbags, ABS, a rear-view camera, crash sensors, and EBD should ensure the safety of the passengers. It might also pack a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment console with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
In India, the Tata Nexon EV begins at Rs. 14.29 lakh and goes up to Rs. 16.9 lakh. The long-range model is likely to bear a price-tag of around Rs. 17-18 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom).
