Tata Nexon EV updated with new infotainment system, alloy wheels
Tata Motors has made some minor feature changes to the Tata Nexon EV, the country's best-selling EV. This update follows similar changes made to the standard Nexon, with which the EV shares its interiors and a large part of its structure.
Tata Nexon EV new infotainment
The notable change on the inside is that the 7.0-inch touchscreen unit loses its bank of physical controls below the AC vents, moving to a touch-only interface. The section now just features Nexon letter while the rest of the cabin remains largely unchanged. So you get the same gloss black panels with blue highlighting and the off-white upholstery. Notable features are the sunroof, ZConnet connected tech, climate control, a semi-digital instrument cluster and LED lighting.
Tata Nexon EV alloy wheels
The Nexon EV has also been updated with a new set of alloy wheels. These are of the same 215/60 R16 size but feature a new dual-tone, five-spoke design. The rest of the exterior remains unchanged with the three dual-tone colour options, the blue highlights and EV badging. The Nexon EV also features a blanked out front-grille, instead of the honeycombed one from the standard Nexon. Read our Tata Nexon EV review here.
Tata Nexon outputs, range, charging
The Nexon EV's lithium-ion battery is of 30.2kWh capacity and feeds a permanent-magnet AC motor that puts 129PS and 245Nm through the front wheels. This allows for a brisk 0 to 100kmph time of 9.9s, the top speed is limited to 120kmph. The SUV will do over 312km on a full charge as per the ARAI, a real-world range of around 230 km can be expected. Read about our Mumbai-Pune road trip in a Nexon EV here.
There is a single-speed gearbox with two drive mode options, Drive and Sport. In the Sport mode, there is a torque boost of up to 60 per cent to give you the full 245Nm. Through a DC fast charger, the Nexon EV will reach 80 per cent capacity in 60 minutes. The car can also be plugged into any standard power socket, which takes eight hours to get from 20 to 80 per cent charge.
