Tata is one of the manufacturers with big ambitions in the electric market in India. To end the year 2023, it offers a nice update.
Sales of electric cars still remain quite low in the Indian market, but are growing at a fairly steady pace. All manufacturers want to be prominent in this emerging, image-rich market. The update of the Nexon is therefore quickly applied to the electric version in a market in which competition is increasingly strong. The evolution of the style is welcome and modernizes this small 4 meter crossover launched in 1997, and one of the most important models for Tata in India, in thermal or electric.
The differences between the thermal or electric model remain minor. In addition to a few logos, the electric version receives a light strip between the headlights at the front and a diagonal line pattern on the front bumper. The interior has also been seriously updated with a new 2-spoke steering wheel, digital instrumentation, a large central screen (12″3 inches on the electric)… On the central console, the rotary wheel to select the PRND positions give way to a more classic small lever, but may be more robust in appearance.
Updated last year with the release of the Nexon EV Max, the small Indian electric SUV does not fundamentally review its copy in terms of propulsion / battery. We therefore find on the access version a 95 kW / 129 hp / 215 Nm motor associated with a 30.2 kWh battery. The range increases from 312 to 325 km. The high version (Max) is more powerful (107 kW / 145 hp / 250 Nm) and receives a larger battery: 40.5 kWh. Here too the autonomy increases from 435 to 465 km (in the local ARAI cycle).
The biggest novelty is in the grip. The charging power has not changed (7.2 kW on alternating current and 50 kW on direct current), but the V2L (Vehicle to Load) and V2V (Vehicle to Vehicle) functions are now available.
Pricing has not yet been confirmed for this development. The previous version started at 13.99 lakh, or €15,700.
When everyone imitates Tesla, Tata is original for the dashboard of the Avinya EV
