Tata had launched Nexon earlier this year and this quickly became popular because of the attractive price tag. Nexon EV is currently the largest selling electric vehicle in the country. Tata Motors has launchd Nexon EV in three trims – XM, XZ+ and XZ+ Lux. The prices start at Rs 13.99 lakh, ex-showroom to Rs 15.99 lakh, ex-showroom.
From the image shared by Tata Motors on Twitter, it looks like, the celebrity couple has gone for XZ+ trim. In comparison to the top-end XZ+ lux trim, XZ+ misses out on features like electric sunroof and a leatherette interiors. Apart from that everything else remains the same. Nexon EV is powered by a Ziptron technology and uses a 30.2 KwH high capacity lithium ion battery. This generates a maximum of 129 Ps and 245 Nm of torque. Tata Nexon has an ARAI certified maximum driving range of 312 kms and it also supports AC and DC charging.
In terms if looks, the Nexon EV is identical to the regular petrol and diesel engine powered Nexon. The only differentiating factor on the outside is the electric blue accents and EV badging which is only available with the EV. Tata Motors even announced a new subscription model for customers in selected Indian cities.
This subscription program will initially be available for cusotmers from Delhi/NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.
