The homegrown carmaker has achieved this milestone in over six months since the EV’s launch

  • Tata launched the Nexon EV in January 2020 as its first long-range EV.

  • It is also available on a subscription basis for up to 36 months.

  • The Nexon EV is the most affordable electric SUV to offer a range of over 300km.

  • It is priced between Rs 13.99 lakh and Rs 15.99 lakh.

  • Its nearest rivals are the Hyundai Kona Electric and MG ZS EV which are larger and more expensive.

Tata launched the electric version of its popular offering, the Nexon sub-4m SUV on January 28 this year. The carmaker rolled out the 1,000th unit of the Nexon EV from its Pune facility on August 18. That’s impressive considering we’ve experienced a global pandemic and a nationwide lockdown during the same period.

The carmaker achieved this milestone in a little over six months since the Nexon EV’s launch. It recently introduced subscription plans for the Nexon EV to expand the ownership options for its affordable EV. You can check out all the details here

There are two other electric SUVs on sale in India: Hyundai Kona Electric and MG ZS EV. However, they aren’t direct rivals as they are bigger than the Nexon EV and positioned as more premium offerings. Here’s how the three compare in terms of specifications and charging time:

0 to 100 percent in 6 hours 10 mins

15A home charger

0 to 100 percent in 19 hours

0 to 80 percent in 16-18 hours

The Nexon EV has the least range, least power output, and the smallest battery here. But it’s not far off in terms of pure EV capabilities and will charge the quickest from a regular wall socket.

While we don’t know the exact number of Nexon EVs sold, we do know that the MG ZS EV is likely the next best-selling EV and the most expensive Hyundai Kona Electric comes in last. Over the last six months, MG sold an average of approximately 90 ZS EVs per month while the Kona averaged around 15 units a month in the same period. Given that Tata just rolled out the 1,000th unit, it seems the affordable Nexon EV enjoyed a higher demand than both the ZS EV and the Kona Electric.

Tata has priced the Nexon EV between Rs 13.99 lakh and Rs 15.99 lakh compared to the Hyundai Kona Electric (Rs 23.75 lakh to Rs 23.94 lakh) and MG ZS EV (Rs 20.88 lakh to Rs 23.58 lakh). Tata is expected to introduce another affordable EV in India in the form of the Altroz EV hatchback, but its launch timeline is unspecified.
