2021 Tata Nexon EV Power Upgrade Leaked Ahead Of India Launch: Here Are All The Details

Tata Motors will be upgrading the 2021 Nexon EV's Ziptron powertrain soon. Ahead of the official announcement, a leaked government document have revealed the changes made by the brand to the best-selling electric car in India.

According to the document, the Nexon EV's electric powertrain will get an increase in power output to 134bhp. This is an increase of 7bhp over the outgoing model, which is rated at 127bhp.

However, there have been no changes made to the specs of the motor or the battery. It continues to use a 95kW electric motor, paired to a 30.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack featuring the brand high-voltage Ziptron technology.

Although the document does not mention the torque output, it is expected to remain the same on the updated electric powertrain at 245Nm.

The document also revealed that the new Nexon EV will continue to be offered in three variants: XM, XZ+ and the XZ+ LUX. They are currently priced at Rs 13.99 lakh, Rs 15.65 lakh and Rs 16.65 lakh, respectively. All prices mentioned are ex-showroom and includes FAME II subsidy only.

With the upgrade in power output of the Nexon EV, the company might increase the prices at the time of launch in India. It could see a price increase of around Rs 15,000 on the current ex-showroom value of the respective variants.

Apart from the power upgrade, the 2021 Nexon EV could feature a couple of cosmetic and feature upgrades to tell it apart from the outgoing model of the electric SUV. However, all these are still speculation and is yet to be confirmed by the company.

As mentioned earlier, the Nexon EV is powered by a 95kW electric motor, paired to a 30.2kWh battery pack with Ziptron technology. The electric SUV features a claimed driving range of 312km on a single charge. However, the real-world range is slightly less depending on several factors.

The charge times for Nexon EV via a home charger are rated between 7 to 8 hours for a complete charge. While charing the SUV through a fast-charger can charge the batteries from 0 to 80% in just 60 mins.

The electric SUV also features a single level regenerative braking technology, which charges the batteries while coasting resulting in an increased driving range.

The Tata Nexon EV features a host of equipment including keyless entry, a push-button start/stop, fully automatic climate control, and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

It also features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a reverse park assist with camera, multiple airbags, ABS, EBD, and the brand's connected technology to control the SUV through a smartphone application that includes 35 different commands.

Currently, Nexon EV is the best-selling electric car in India. However, this could change in the coming months as Tata Motors is looking to challenge its own product by launching the 2021 Tigor EV compact electric sedan that features the brand's Ziptron technology.

The new Tigor EV has been unveiled by the brand revealing a host of changes, charging times, powertrain specs and other details. However, the launch and prices announcement will be made on August 31 — here are all the details.
