Here’s A Better Look At Tata’s Nexon Electric SUV With More Spy Images


Expect the electrified Nexon to launch at the Auto Expo 2020

 

  • The Nexon EV is likely to get exterior bits from the upcoming Nexon facelift.
  • It could get a semi-digital instrument cluster like the Harrier as well.
  • It will be powered by Tata’s Ziptron tech with an expected range of 300km.
  • The Nexon EV could rival the upcoming Mahindra XUV300 electric once launched.

Tata Motors is hard at work preparing for the unveil of the Nexon EV on December 16 with extensive testing and campaigns. And now fresh spy images have surfaced of the electric vehicle undergoing testing ahead of its unveiling. While the test mule spied retains the blue camo livery and looks similar to the current Nexon, it is expected to feature some upgrades from the upcoming non-electric Nexon facelift that has also been spied testing.

The spied images of the Nexon facelift reveals bits like a Harrier-esque grille with revised projector headlamps and new DRLs. Other changes include a new set of alloy wheels as well as minor changes to the rear end. Expect the Nexon EV to feature these upgrades.

The interiors for the Nexon EV may not be fully revealed, but spy shots of the Nexon facelift show a semi-digital instrument cluster borrowed from the Tata Harrier SUV. It also gets the steering-wheel from the Tata Altroz. Additional features like cruise control, a colour multi-info display as well as automatic headlamps are expected. Expect the same to be offered in  the electrified Nexon as well.

The main highlight of this EV is that it will be the first model to debut the carmaker’s Ziptron powertrain. It consists of a permanent magnet AC motor that draws juice from an IP67-rated dust and waterproof battery pack. Technical specifications are yet to be revealed, but we expect it to offer a real-world range of 300km. Tata Motors has also claimed that they’ve tested the new powertrain for more than one million km. 

Aside from prepping the EV, Tata Motors is also sorting out its charging infrastructure ahead of the launch. Tata currently has 85 chargers across 13 cities, with plans to have 300 chargers across five metro cities: Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru and Hyderabad.

Post its December 16 unveil, the Nexon EV is expected to launch at the Auto Expo 2020 alongside the facelifted ICE model. Expect a price range of Rs 15 lakh to Rs 17 lakh (ex-showroom). Once launched, it is likely to take on the likes of the upcoming Mahindra XUV300 electric. This isn’t going to be the only electric SUV coming this December as MG Motors India will also unveil the India-spec ZS EV.
