As our natural resources, petrol and diesel, are getting scarce, automobile manufacturers are concentrating more on electric vehicles. In the past, a lot of manufacturers like Tata Motors, MG Motors and Hyundai have launched EVs in the Indian market. Manufacturers are also focusing on EVs because they are the best for our environment as they reduce pollution.

Tata launched the Nexon EV earlier this year and the response so far has been amazing. As far as the numbers go, the company managed to sell 198 units of the Nexon EVs, while MG Motors managed to sell 116 units of the ZS EV. On the other hand, the numbers for the Hyundai Kona EV are not yet disclosed, but as the Kona is selling in limited numbers in our country, we expect that the company would have sold lesser units compared to Tata and MG manufacturers.

Powering the Nexon EV is a 95kW electric motor which is connected to the front wheels. The motor is paired with a 30.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack that produced 129bhp and 245Nm of peak torque. Tata Motors claims the EV is capable of offering a range of 312km on a single charge (ARAI-certified).

While the fast-charging technology that requires a fast-charging station, which the company plans to install across various parts of major cities, will charge the Nexon EV batteries from 0 - 80 percent in just 60 mins.

Thoughts On The Tata Nexon EV

The Tata Nexon EV is India's first compact SUV that looks really amazing and performs great. However, the EV does not have any direct rival in the Indian market, but as of now, it will go up against the likes of the Hyundai Kona and MG ZS EV.
