Currently, the Nexon EV comes with a 30.2kWh unit battery pack which returns a range of 312km (ARAI) on a single charge. The new model will receive a bigger pack the details of which aren't made public at the moment. However, the longer-range Nexon EV is most likely to be updated with close to 380-400 km full charge cycle range.
Apart from a bigger battery pack, expect the eSUV to bring along new features too. Tata might introduce an adjustable re-gen feature on the new car which is going to be a step up from the existing model with mild and non-adjustable re-generative braking. That said, the company, in all likelihood, will also update the EV with more features such as Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Cruise Control, and Park Mode, over the existing model. All this will make the Nexon EV a more feature-packed, and reliable offering in terms of full charge range.
As far as the pricing goes, the new model will be placed higher than the existing model. While the current car retails in the range of ₹14.51 lakh to ₹17.15 lakh (ex-showroom), the upcoming Nexon EV long-range may start from ₹16.50 lakh or more.
