These above-mentioned features were previously not available on the standard Nexon EV and were exclusive to the newly launched Tata Nexon EV Max.

However, these features will be now made available to existing Tata Nexon EVs as well through an update. Moreover, this update will be made free of charge. To avail this update, existing Tata Nexon EV customers can visit the nearest Tata dealership from 25th July onwards.

In addition to that, we expect the company to install all the necessary hardware and related components to make these additional features work. However, we suspect these physical components will be charged.

In their social media update, Tata Motors mentioned the "First software update will be free of charge". This raised a question regarding future updates and the cost behind those updates.

Though Tata Nexon EV does not have any direct competitors, we expect the model to have real competition very soon in form of the upcoming Mahindra XUV400 Electric. However, the model still has to compete with EVs such as Hyundai Kona and MG ZS EV.
