Earlier, there were rumours that Tata Motors is working on a Dark Edition of Nexon EV. The SUV is supposed to be launched in the Atlas Black paint colour which we have Harrier Dark Edition and it would be the flagship variant. Here, we have exclusive spy shots of the new Tata Nexon EV’s Dark Edition. We also have the new banner that Tata Motors will use to tease the Dark Edition of the Nexon EV.
In the pictures, we can see that Tata Motors has removed some of the blue accents and replaced them with gloss black. So, the humanity line below the headlamps, window beltline and the plastic piece that joins both the tail lamps are now blacked out.
Tata Motors is still using some blue accents to emphasise that this Nexon is electric. So the rear reflector surrounds, EV badges and fog lamp surrounds have the iconic Blue colour. It also has a “#DARK” and EV badge on the front fender.
The alloy wheels are also newly designed and are in dark grey colour. Tata is also using a darkened “Nexon” badge instead of chrome that they use on the regular Nexon EV.
The cabin also has been redone. The stock Nexon EV comes with a dual-tone theme. The Dark Edition comes with white upholstery, but the Dark Edition will come with black seats and the rest of the interior will also be black. The dashboard will have piano black and blue inserts.
Tata has made a new banner for teasing the launch of the Nexon EV Dark Edition. It “says Electric #DARK is here to rule”. They have used a black background with electric lightning to indicate that the launch is of an electric vehicle. Just like other vehicles, Tata Motors can charge a premium of Rs. 20,000 for the Dark Edition of Nexon EV. It is expected to be offered with the higher variants. The launch date of the new variant is still not known yet.
No mechanical changes
There are no mechanical changes to the Nexon EV Dark Edition. They are only cosmetic. So, it will continue to come with a 30.2 kWh battery pack that will be able to generate 129 PS of max power and 245 Nm of peak torque. The driving range from the battery pack is of 312 km. In real-world conditions, you should be able to get around 180 km on a single charge.
The battery can be charged from 0 to 80 percent in just 60 minutes using the fast charger. A home wall box charger that is installed by Tata Motors can charge the battery up to 80 percent in 8.5 hours.
More Dark Edition vehicles coming soon
Tata Motors is also working on dark edition versions of the regular Nexon and the Altroz. People really loved Harrier’s Dark Edition when it was launched. People started converting their regular vehicles to “Dark Editions” by using after-market paint jobs and wraps. So, Tata decided to work on the official Dark Edition variants for their vehicles. The Nexon and the Altroz’s Dark Edition variants have already been spied at a dealership and they do look very attractive.
