4. Improved Range and Efficiency

Tata Motors has retained the outgoing Nexon EV’s battery options – a 30 kWh battery on the Medium Range (MR) variant and a 40.5 kWh battery on the Long Range (LR) variant, boasting ARAI-claimed ranges of 325 km and 465 km, respectively. These improved ranges are partly achieved through enhanced aerodynamics and energy-efficient LED lighting.

5. Charging Capabilities

Both the Medium and Long Range variants come with a 7.2kW AC charger as standard, allowing for a full charge from 10% to 100% in just 4.3 hours (Medium Range) and 6 hours (Long Range). With a DC fast charger, this time reduces to a mere 56 minutes, which is the same for both variants of the electric SUV. Additionally, the Nexon EV now supports Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) charging, enabling you to charge other electrical appliances or even another EV.

6. Power and Torque Figures

Despite a slight reduction in torque, the LR version can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 8.9 seconds.
