    Make : Tata
    Model : Nexon EV
    We Like
    • Smooth and zippy performance
    • Ride and handling
    • Comfy interiors
    • Value for money
    We Don't Like
    • Range not as good as advertised
    • Display screens lack sufficient EV data
    • Restricted top speed

    India might still be warming up to the concept of electric vehicles, but Tata Motors has already got a head start, with the Nexon EV having already captured 74 percent of EV sales. This made-in-India, all-electric SUV has caught the fancy of over 2,200 eco-conscious buyers across the country. What has worked in its favour, besides its SUV appeal, are its sorted fundamentals and a value-for-money price tag that undercuts other EVs by over Rs 7 lakh.

    Over the past few months, Tata Motors has tweaked certain aspects of the vehicle after analysing the driving behavior of several EV users, and incorporated relevant customer feedback in its latest software update to make the Nexon EV’s drive experience smoother and the car more user friendly. We put the current iteration of the Nexon EV through its paces, and here’s how it held up.

    I have done my 2nd service of my Nexon EV Lux. I drove 7800 km , 5 months over. I found 3 times there is sudden drop in battery percentage from 60% to 20% 1st time and 2nd time the battery percentage drop from 50% to 22%. This is really horrifying if u go for long drive then you will be in real soups. Sometimes I feel I have done a mistake in purchasing EV from TATA. Also, i have never got the range above 150 km. But they claimed 230 to 300 km which is fell absurd.
