The shift towards electric mobility in the case of cars is no longer about talks and promises. We now have new EVs entering the market with a claimed range of over 200km. Right after launching the Tigor EV for personal buyers, Tata has launched a series of clips that preview its next emission-free offering, the Nexon EV.
It can be spotted featuring a new digital instrument cluster that looks similar to the one fitted in the Tata Harrier as well as the upcoming Altroz premium hatchback. However, it seems to display different graphics, perhaps something better suited for an EV such as a battery-charge and range meter. It also gets a freestanding 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system like the regular Nexon.
Tata will be incorporating its Ziptron EV technology with an aim to offer 300km of range from a full charge for the Nexon EV. It is expected to feature a 300-volt electric motor and fast-charging capability. The motor and battery will come with an 8-year standard warranty from Tata. The video also shows the charging port positioned in the same spot as the fuel filler cap.
Tata Motors is also in the process of setting up 300 fast-charging stations by mid-2020 to provide charging and infrastructural support for its EV models. The Nexon EV would be its second EV offering with the third one expected before 2020-end—it might be the Altroz EV, which was showcased in concept form at the 2019 Geneva motor show.
The Nexon EV will be launching in the first quarter of 2020 and is expected to be priced around Rs 15 lakh mark. It would be far more affordable than the Hyundai Kona Electric, which is a more premium all-electric compact SUV priced above Rs 23 lakh. The Nexon EV will most likely face the electric version of the Mahindra XUV300 as a direct rival.
