Tata Nexon EV Long Range Variant To Launch in 2022

Added in: News

Tata was one of the early birds of the EV industry in India. It brought the EV culture to India at a price that attracted all buyers. Moreover, the brand offered a complete range of vehicles including a Hatchback, a Sedan, and an SUV. The Nexon EV is the most selling EV in the brand’s line-up. Not just that, Nexon EV has dominated the electric 4-wheeler segment from the day it was released. Now to take these figures even higher, Tata is giving some major updates to the Nexon.

What to expect

The year 2022 is bringing some much-desired upgrades for the Nexon EV. The biggest change can be seen in the battery of the car. The 2022 model will get a 40kWh battery as compared to the 30.2kWh pack seen in the previous generation model. The official range of the old Nexon EV was said to be 300Km, but the real-world range is close to 200Km. While this range is good for intracity commutes, it is not sufficient for longer inter-city or inter-state travel. With the inclusion of this larger battery pack, the car will offer a range of 400Km. While the real-world range will be lesser than the certified figure, it might range from anywhere between 300Km to 320Km. Such a range offers more convenience to the drivers and also makes longer travel possible.

There will be some new features as well. The 2022 Nexon EV will get selectable regenerative modes. With this, the driver can choose the intensity of regenerative braking that can help improve range from the battery pack. The new car will also get Electronic Stability Program or ESP. Apart from that we also see some cosmetic changes like the new alloy wheels. In addition to all of this, the bigger battery pack is also heavier and increases the weight of the car by over 100Kg.

The new battery pack will be offered as a long-range variant for the Nexon EV and the smaller 30.2kWh battery will make up the standard model. This will give the buyers a choice to either opt for the expensive model or the cheaper standard model. This upgrade will equip the Nexon to go head-to-head against the MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona EV, as both these cars offer a certified range close to 400Km. As of now, there are no official statements regarding the cost of the 2022 Tata Nexon EV. But the new battery and the added features will take the cost up by 2-3 Lakhs raising the overall cost to ₹16L to ₹19L.
