We are used to car prices increasing steadily as the years pass. But in a new twist, Tata has slashed the prices of one of India’s most popular EVs, the Nexon EV Prime and Nexon EV Max. The latter also gets a more affordable base-spec XM variant, and a software update that gives it a longer range, closing the gap between the Tata SUV and the newly launched Mahindra XUV400 EV

The new XM trim level in the Max can be booked from today, while deliveries will begin in April. Here are the new prices.

According to the carmaker, the reason for the price decrease is “the implementation of cutting-edge technology and innovative engineering techniques” in addition to the government’s production-linked incentives that allowed Tata to make the production process more efficient.
