Tata Nexon EV facelift: Exterior Design
The Nexon EV facelift will share styling changes with the Nexon facelift, including a redesigned front and rear, as well as new 16-inch alloy wheels. However, the EV will feature a full-length light bar at the front in place of the horizontal DRLs. It will also come equipped with LED projector headlamps, fog lights with cornering function, and a light stripe running across the width at the rear. The Nexon facelift offers six colors, and the Nexon EV facelift is expected to provide the same shades, along with an EV-specific paint scheme.

This includes a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 10.25-inch fully digital instrument console, a new steering wheel, leatherette seats, and capacitive touch switches on the reworked center console.
