When it was launched in 2020, the Nexon EV was offered with a 30.2kWh battery pack that delivered an ARAI certified range of 312 kilometres.

For the Nexon EV Max, Tata has upgraded the battery pack to a 40.5kWh unit. This increase of 10.3kWh has resulted in more range. The Tata Nexon EV Max has an ARAI certified range of 437 kilometres on a single charge which is 125 kilometres more than that of the OG Tata Nexon EV.

The OG Nexon EV featured a 30.2kWh battery pack which supported 3.3kW AC charging and fast DC charging.

To ensure faster charging times at home, Tata Motors has introduced a faster 7.2kW home charging option (which adds an extra Rs 50,000 to the ex-showroom price) which charges the Nexon EV Max in 6 to 7 hours. The Tata Nexon EV Max charges from 10-80 per cent in 56 minutes when connected to a fast DC charger.
