Rumours hint that a new, longer-ranged Nexon EV is lurking around the corner and might be unveiled soon but nothing is officially confirmed as of yet.
The existing Nexon EV comes with a 30.2kW battery pack and offers a claimed range of 312km on a full charge. It sources power from a permanent magnet synchronous motor located at the front axle. This motor is capable of producing 127bhp of maximum power and 245Nm of peak torque. It is capable of pushing the SUV from 0-100 kmph in 9.9 seconds, and propel the car to a top speed of 120 kmph.
If the Nexon EV does get an update, it might also bring along subtle tweaks to the exteriors along with a new and modern infotainment system, and a handful of additional features.
In fact, Nexon EV has helped Tata Motors to become the most successful electric car brand in the country. It has crossed 13,500 unit sales within just two years of its launch. Moreover, the company has also recently rolled out the new Dark Edition of the electric SUV in July 2021.
