The Tata Nexon EV had to compete with two strong contenders – the MG ZS EV and the Mercedes-Benz EQC – to win the 2021 CNB EV of the Year award.
Tata Nexon EV comes with a permanent magnet AC motor, which is powered by a Lithium-Ion battery that is liquid-cooled and gets IP67 certification, making the battery water and dust resistant. The Nexon EV uses a 30.2 kWh battery offering a maximum range of over 312 km on a single charge, and the new electric powertrain offers an output of 245 Nm of peak torque, enough to clock triple-digit speeds in 9.9 seconds. The battery can be charged up to 80 per cent in 60 mins using a fast charger while it will take 8 hours to do the same using a home charger.
The Nexon EV is offered in India in three variants – XM, XZ+ and XZ+ LUX. All three variants are priced in India ₹ 13.99 lakh, ₹ 15.40 lakh and ₹ 16.40 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Tata Nexon EV is also offered under a subscription-based model, in collaboration with Orix Auto. Under the model, customers can get the electric SUV at an all-inclusive fixed rental plan starting at just ₹ 34,900 per month.
