    High Court issues stay order on Tata Nexon EV’s delisting

    Granting temporary relief to Tata Motors, the Delhi High Court has issued a stay order against the delisting of the Nexon EV from the Delhi Government’s list of vehicles eligible for its EV subsidies. According to a statement by Tata Motors, the High Court has also granted time to the Delhi Government to file a counter affidavit.

    • Delhi High Court stays delisting of Nexon EV from government subsidies list
    • Nexon EV delisted due to consumer complaints about inadequate range

    Earlier this month, the Delhi Government delisted the Nexon EV from its subsidy scheme for electric vehicles, citing consumer complaints about its subpar range. Thus, the stay order will come as a relief to Tata Motors, as the range controversy erupted over consumer complaints and not from a certified agency.

    Moreover, all vehicles, EVs and ICEs (internal combustion engines) alike, have a variation between the real-world and ARAI-certified mileage. Therefore, any action should have been taken after a proper investigation into the extent of variation, and if this issue is widespread across all Nexon EVs.

    Given the Delhi Government’s keen EV push, the entire delisting affair is quite strange. Furthermore, the range that an EV will deliver is not as straightforward as an ICE vehicle mileage, there are additional variables involved and, curiously, an EV delivers a better range in the city as compared to the highway. Further complicating matters is the fact that, for EVs, ARAI issues the city mileage and not the overall figure. You can read more about all this in our in-depth analysis here
