The global unveiling of the electric Tata Nexon has been set for 17th December. It will be Tata’s second EV for the public, after the Tigor.
After making the Tigor EV open to regular buyers, Tata is on its way to bring another electric car. While Tata is testing the Nexon EV in the hilly areas and open stretches of highway, we will be finally seeing it in flesh on 17th December. Earlier, it was supposed to be unveiled a day earlier.
The technical specifications have not been revealed yet, but the electric SUV will use Tata’s new Ziptron EV technology. It will be equipped with an IP67-rated lithium-ion battery which will offer a claimed driving range of 300 kms.
The battery pack will also get liquid-cooling inside, which will help in maintaining the engine temperature. Also, Tata motors will be offering an 8-year warranty on the battery pack and the electric motor.
For that, Tata has also kickstarted its #UltimateElectricDrive campaign, in which the electric Tata Nexon will be taken from Manali to Leh to be tested in adverse terrain and extreme weather conditions.
Tata Motors is likely to offer a standard AC charger to be installed at home and an optional fast charger as well. We are expecting the EV to take around 4-5 hours to be charged fully. Further, the same technology and battery pack are expected to come on the upcoming Tata Altroz EV.
With this, Tata is also going to launch the facelifted Nexon soon. The facelift will see the tweaked front and rear bumpers, a new front grille and some changes inside the cabin. We can also expect some new features like electric sunroof, front parking sensors and more. We expect the changes to the facelift will be seen on the EV as well.
The estimated price range of the electric Tata Nexon is around 15 Lakhs (ex-showroom). It will go against the likes of Mahindra XUV300 Electric, which is also slated to be launched next year. Interestingly, the XUV300 EV is also offered with a 300 kms range.
Recently, Tata Motors also opened the purchase of Tigor EV for the public. It now gets a 213 kms of range and comes at a price of Rs 13.09 Lakhs to Rs 13.41 Lakhs (Ex-showroom Delhi).
