Tata Nexon EV: A brief recap
Based on the Nexon compact SUV, the Nexon EV is the first Tata car to feature the brand’s Ziptron EV technology. The carmaker had earlier in the year confirmed the launch of four additional all-electric models in the next two years, one of which will be the Altroz EV.
Available in three variants, the Nexon EV pairs an 129hp, 245Nm electric motor to a 30.2kWh battery pack to drive the front wheels. The set-up gives it a claimed range of 312km. We drove the Nexon EV around the time of its launch, and you can read our review here.
Tata recently also introduced the option for customers to subscribe to the Nexon EV in partnership with Orix India. You can read about the subscription plans here.

Moving to future models from Tata, the carmaker is set to introduce the production version of its HBX concept-based micro-SUV in the coming months. Also on the cards is the launch of the seven-seat Gravitas SUV and a petrol automatic derivative of the Altroz.
