Tata Nexon EV Max has a claimed driving range of 437 km on a single charge and it gains a number of new features; 0-100 kmph in under 9 seconds
Following a set of teaser images over the last few days, Tata Motors has launched the long-range version of the Nexon EV dubbed the Nexon EV Max today in the domestic market. The Tata Nexon EV Max gets a host of updates to differentiate itself from the regular 30.2 kWh version. It will take on the likes of MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona Electric.
It carries a price tag of Rs. 17.74 lakh for XZ+, Rs. 18.24 lakh for XZ+ with 7.2 kW charger, Rs. 18.74 lakh for XZ+ Lux and Rs. 19.24 lakh for XZ+ Lux with 7.2 kW charger (all prices, ex-showroom). The major highlight is the 40.5 kWh Li-ion battery pack (10.3 kWh larger) and it enables a power output of 143 hp and 250 Nm of torque (14 hp and 5 Nm more than the standard model). Despite changes to accommodate the larger battery pack, the bootspace remains at 350 litres.
The Tata Nexon EV Max impressively undercuts its rivals by a big margin and it has a claimed driving range of 437 km on a single charge – about 125 km more than the claimed range of the standard Nexon EV. Thus, it could return a real-world range of around 300 to 320 km – a highly promising range that will help the electric SUV appeal to a wider range of customers. Coupled with selectable regen modes, the Max has higher overall efficiency as well.
