Tata Motors ready to launch long range version of its all-electric subcompact SUV – Tata Nexon EV Max 11 May.
Although the technical details and range have not been revealed yet, the SUV is expected to come with a big 40KWh battery with claimed range of more than 400 km.
Also, based on the teaser released by the company, the electric SUV will now come with a new rotary dial for transmission, electronic parking brake and auto hold function.
These features are expected to increase the price of the upcoming Tata Nexon EV Max.
Currently, the standard Nexon EV is offered in three variants – XM, XZ, XZ LUX, and the last two trims have the Dark Edition option, priced from ₹ 14.54 million to ₹ 17.15 million (ex-showroom, India).
In the case of the Long Range Nexon EV Max, we expect it to be sold with the current model, considering the larger battery pack and new features, the EVT could increase by Rs 2-3 lakh. Prices range from around ₹ 18 lakhs to ₹ 20 lakhs (ex-showroom).
In appearance, the new long range Tata Nexon EV Max will be the same as the regular model, however, we expect to add a ‘Max’ badge to the EV.
The cabin is also expected to remain largely unchanged. However, the car comes with an updated center console, a new rotary dial and a display unit that shows you the mode you are in, as well as some other features.
The current Tata Nexon EV is powered by a fixed-magnet AC motor attached to a 30.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
The electric motor is mated to 127 bhp and 245 Nm of peak torque and can accelerate from 0-100 km / h to 120 km / h in 9.9 seconds. The IP67 rated battery pack is water resistant and ARAI certified with a range of 312 km on a single charge.
The Tata Nexon EV also offers a 3.3 kW onboard charger that can be fully charged in less than eight hours. Meanwhile, a 25 kW DC fast charger will charge the car 0-80 percent in 60 minutes.
