Tata Nexon is one of the most popular compact SUVs in the country and comes with various powertrain options.
Tata Nexon EV has been just launched in India and there are reports suggesting that the Nexon SUV could also come in the iCNG guise. Nexon has been the volume churner for the Indian auto giant for a long time now. In fact, its 5-star safety rating (for the pre-facelift model), striking bold looks and the latest tech and connectivity features are some of the top reasons for its mad popularity. The latest model features even more modern bits. It is already on sale with the ICE and electric powertrains. But there could even be a CNG model on offer soon. Here are the details.
