Tata is taking a giant leap in the electric vehicle game by revealing the all new Nexon EV. Nexon EV is the electric version of the already popular Nexon. Nexon EV shares the same design elements from the standard Nexon and even the size is almost identical. The new EV from Tata will be getting a new grille design with blue highlights on the exterior and interior of the car. The Nexon EV will be available in three colour options: Signature Teal Blue colour, Moonlit Silver and Glacier White. The Nexon is expected to be priced between IRs 1.5 million to 1.7 million.
Tata’s new EV will be offered in three variants: XM, XZ+ and XZ+ Lux.

XZ+ variant gets additional dual-tone colour options, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with a rear camera, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and a leather wrapped steering wheel. The top-spec variant is equipped with an electric sunroof, leatherette seats and automatic wipers and headlamps.
Inside, the Nexon EV gets a new 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster along with an analog speedometer and a new rotary dial to select the gear. The biggest change in the interior is a lighter theme with blue accents. The 7.0-inch touchscreen on the Nexon EV supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for connectivity. The car also offers over 30 connectivity features including remote commands and stowaway warnings that can be accessed via a smartphone application and the car’s infotainment system.
Talking about its electric motor, the Nexon EV uses Tata’s new Ziptron technology. The car gets a 30.2kWh lithium- ion battery pack that can produce up to 95kW (129hp) and 245Nm of torque. Tata claims that the car can do 0-100kph in just 9.9 sec.
