Tata Nexon EV Charging Cost
This information has been shared by a certain Manu M on Facebook who is a proud owner of the Nexon EV. He has driven the EV for about 85,000 km in just 2 years with an average running of 114 km per day. Based on this, he has devised this table taking into consideration the costs associated with electricity prices, fast and slow charging, stabilizer losses, his driving mannerisms and more. Considering the cost of electricity per unit to be around Rs 9.26 and the energy consumption of the EV to be 129 KWh/km, he spent just over Rs 1.01 lakh for charging.
More importantly, this number gets reduced to just over Rs 95,500 if we exclude the stabilizer losses. In this case, the charging cost per km comes out to be an impressive Rs 1.13. Note that this includes DC fast-charging scenarios as well. Those are a bit more expensive compared to charging at home with AC power. It must be understood that these are significantly more affordable and cost-effective than their IC-powered counterparts.
