Nexon EV contributes heavily in Tata Motors' rise as an EV maker. In October last year, Tata had announced it had registered more than 10,000 EV sales in India. The carmaker currently leads the four-wheeler EV space in the country by a mile with a share of more than 70 percent in the passenger vehicle segment.
Tata Motors recently launched the Dark Edition of the Nexon EV, called Nexon Dark. Besides the Dark Edition, which has two trims, Nexon EV is available in another three variants in India. The price of Nexon EV starts at ₹14.29 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to ₹16.90 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec Dark XZ+ Lux variant.
Tata Nexon EV can be charged up to 80 percent within an hour when using a DC fast charger. However, it takes up to 8.30 hours to replenish from 10 percent to 90 percent when using a regular home charger.
According to reports, Tata may launch a facelift version of the Nexon EV this year. Besides certain design updates, the facelifted Nexon EV is likely to get longer range. The 2022 Nexon EV is likely to get a 40kWh battery pack which is capable of offering a maximum range of about 400 kms without recharging it.
The Nexon EV may soon have rivals in India as MG Motor has revealed its plan to launch an affordable electric SUV next year. MG already offers ZS EV, its first and only electric car for the Indian markets.
