More details about the Tata Nexon EV emerge as we inch towards its official debut on December 16. The manufacturer has now released a teaser video of the electric SUV in its final stage of testing and we could notice the new alloy wheels, which are likely to be present in the facelifted Nexon. Tata Motors has also launched its official website, which reveals a key feature of the upcoming electric vehicle (EV). Let’s read more about the Nexon EV in detail.

The Nexon EV will be the first Tata car to come with connected-car tech. It comes with more than 30 connected features. Highlights include location-based services, vital vehicle stats, alerts and notification, as well as safety and security features. It remains to be seen whether it will get features like remote start-stop and climate control functions as seen in the Venue and whether these features will be made available in the ICE Nexon. 

 

The Nexon EV will debut the carmaker’s new Ziptron powertrain that uses a permanent Magnet AC motor. It draws power from an IP67-rated liquid-cooled battery pack that’s both waterproof and dustproof. Tata Motors claims that the battery pack has been tested for 10 lakh km and will have a standard 8-year warranty on it. It also supports fast-charging capabilities. Currently, Tata Motors has 85 chargers across 13 cities but it is looking to expand to 300. 

Tata Motors is working on the facelifted Nexon that will come with a Harrier-like fascia. Other styling upgrades include new 8-spoke alloy wheels that can be seen in the Nexon EV. It will borrow its instrument cluster and steering wheel from the Altroz hatchback. The 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel powertrains could be upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms in the facelifted Nexon, which is expected to debut at the Auto Expo 2020. 

The Tata Nexon EV is likely to get similar upgrades as its ICE counterpart. The electric SUV will officially debut on December 16 with an official launch expected at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020. Its primary rival will be the upcoming Mahindra XUV300 electric
