Tata Nexon EV Review
The name of the Nexon EV is Manish and he takes the YouTuber on a ride in his Nexon EV who has uploaded this video on YouTube. Manish has been driving this vehicle for around 26 days and shares his experience until now. He starts by informing the YouTuber that EVs are not the future of mobility but the present. Manish drives primarily around the Delhi NCR region and the daily running is in the ballpark of around 50 km. He charges his EV at his home with a regular charger. It takes around 10 hours for the EV to get charged from around 15% to 100%. The range that he has been getting regularly is around 210 km. It costs him around Re 1 per km in terms of the running cost. This is because his commute is primarily in the city. EVs tend to give a better range in cities due to regenerative braking technology associated with electric cars. According to this, the battery keeps getting recharged when the driver steps off the accelerator pedal.
Manish mentions that some state governments are indeed very supportive of the people to promote the rapid adoption of EVs. This includes Delhi, Punjab, Gujarat, Maharashtra, etc, while some others are lagging too far behind. For instance, if you want to travel from Delhi to Ludhiana, there are multiple charging stations in Delhi, Karnal, Chandigarh, etc. However, if you wish to travel from Delhi to Lucknow, which is a popular route, you won’t find much infrastructure. That is the case with most state governments who are not giving enough subsidies or incentives to encourage the general public to opt for electric cars. Hence, a bigger push is needed to ensure the rapid growth of this sector of the Indian automobile market.
