Tata Nexon EVs will be the company’s first electric SUV model to hit the Indian roads. And, it is the first to use Ziptron technology designed by Tata Motors. The company already announced earlier this year that it is entering the personal electric vehicle segment. However, the latest reports suggest that it is ready to debut the first-ever EV from Tata Motors on 17 December. Aside from the Nexon EV, the company has already launched Tata Tigor EV and planning for Tata Altroz EV to join the Tata EV family soon.
Tata Nexon EV World Premiere
Tata Motors confirmed that the company will host the Tata Nexon EV world premiere at Mumbai, India on 17th December 2019. The company has reported earlier to unveil its first electric SUV on 16 December. However, some changes made to the plan; and the company wants to put the world premiere for its all-electric SUV now on December 17. Though it’s not the first electric car from Tata Motors, it’s sure the first one to receive the latest Ziptron Technology.
Tata Nexon EV Price
According to the company’s claims, Tata Nexon EV will have a price between Rs. 15 lakh to 17 lakh. This means it will undercut the Hyundai Kona EV which is its closest competitor so far. Also, Tata will likely go up against the MG ZS EV that is set for a December 5 debut. Having said that, this is still a quite premium over its standard Nexon which starts from Rs. 6.5 lakhs.
Tata Nexon EVs will use a lithium-ion battery which will be liquid-cooled and IP-67 certified for dust and water resistance. There will be a built-in SIM to operate functions like engine start/off, HAVC control remotely, etc. The battery management system in the Ziptron powertrain is designed to increase the battery life up to eight long years and offers consistent performance. According to sources, the model yet to hit the showrooms will power a 300V permanent magnet synchronous motor and use a single-speed transmission. Nexon EV can go a range of 250-300 km on a single charge.
All About Nexon EV Styling
Tata Nexon EV expects to receive an all-new front fascia from its makers which it may share with the facelifted Nexon in the upcoming days.
