Tata Nexon EV Max power output and battery details:
The Nexon EV Max from Tata Motors gets powered by a larger - by 30% - battery than what is on board the Nexon EV. The 40.5 kWh unit is what is primarily responsible for the enhanced range on the newest electric vehicle from the Indian manufacturer. But while the battery may be larger, it has not had any adverse impact on the boot capacity of the vehicle which continues to be at 350 litres.
