Tata Nexon EV, India’s First Sub-4M Compact SUV Launched With New Prices
By: Sneha Chaudhary
Tata Motors, which launched the Nexon EV amid a lot of fanfare earlier this year, has now raised SUV costs. At launch, the Tata Nexon EV has priced at Rs 13.99 lakh for the XM, Rs 14.99 lakh for the XZ+ and Rs 15.99 lakh for the XZ+ Lux. Now that the basic model price has stayed the same, the XZ+ option is Rs 15.25 lakh, while the XZ+ Lux is Rs 16.25 lakh. Although there is no valid explanation offered for the price rise, we suspect that this may be attributed to the increase in production costs. The price rise will be effective from October 2020.
Tata Motors also offers a car with a subscription package. Speaking of which, Tata Motors has consistently sold more than 200 Nexon EV units per month. It pays for the Nexon to be India’s lowest-priced electric SUV right now.
The Tata Nexon EV builds on the true ICE SUV. The electric SUV should have the same five stars in the GNCAP test, and it hasn’t been tested yet, with the same underpinnings. It uses a 30.2kWh Li-ion battery and an electric motor combination that generates 129hp of power and 245Nm of power. The certified driving range is 312 km, and the EV also has various driving modes on sale. Tata Motors maintains that the EV also has a 60-minute easy charge.
With the Nexon electric, there are more than 35 related features, and it’s also not lacking features. It has a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and has features like automatic projector headlights, sunroof, electrically adjustable ORVMs, automatic climate control. Keyless entry and 16-inch alloy wheels are also available.
Right now, both the Tata Tigor EV as well as the Nexon electric vehicle are among the most accessible in India. It’s just the yet-to-be-seen electric Mahindra KUV that is priced lower. This price, however, was revealed at the Auto Expo and will possibly be raised whenever the SUV goes on sale.
