Tata Motors is trying to make a big statement with the forthcoming lineup of electric cars based on the Ziptron technology. The first model using this tech has been the Nexon EV. The compact SUV has an upgraded exterior compared to the regular IC-engine powered Nexon and it comes with several interesting technologies on board that will harbinger a range of new zero-emission vehicles.
We all know the instantaneous torque delivery of the electrified vehicles with immediate push on the throttle and it really sets the EVs apart from their regular counterparts. The Nexon EV does it with ease and is claimed to accelerate from zero to 100 kmph in just under ten seconds while the zero to 60 kmph lunge is deal with in less than four seconds.
The video posted by 91Wheels do indicate the sporty acceleration characteristics of the soon-launching eco-friendly vehicle, which is expected to cost around Rs. 15 lakh. The front-wheel-driven SUV uses a 30.2 kWh IP67-certified battery pack and permanent magnet synchronous electric motor with the nominal voltage of 320 V.
It is rated to generate a maximum power output of 129 PS and 245 Nm of peak torque. While utilising the standard 15 A charger, the electric SUV can be charged from 20 to 100 per cent in about eight hours’ time. But, switching to a fast charger will make the life a lot easier as the Nexon EV can replenish back to 80 per cent in just 60 minutes.
