2022 Tata Nexon EV Max Review

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Tata Motors India’s Nexon was quite successful, as it offered good space, dynamics and ride quality. However, the surprise was the Nexon EV. When Tata launched the Nexon EV, people had their doubts, but they quickly went away. Given the rising petrol and diesel prices, EV adoption started picking up, and Tata was ready. The Nexon EV quickly became a popular choice for buyers after experiencing it. It also helped that it was the most affordable option at the time. But even after the successful run, some people were still shying away from the Nexon EV because of the limited range. 

Hence, to address this and also to take on more expensive rivals, Tata has launched the new Nexon EV Max. Most importantly, the Nexon EV Max offers a bigger battery pack and a longer range. Other revisions also include some interior tweaks and additional safety features.

It uses a 40.5 kW high energy density lithium-ion with a liquid-cooling system. The additional power and bigger battery help the Nexon EV Max make the 0 to 100 kmph sprint in less than 9 seconds. The top speed is increased but electronically limited to 140 kmph. According to the MIDC Cycle, the Nexon EV Max has a claimed range of 437 km.

2022 Tata Nexon EV Max – Fast Charging

Charging time estimates when using a 15A plug is 15 hours for a 10 to 100 per cent charge. However, using the new 7.2 kW AC Fast Charger drops the time down to 6.5 hours for a 0 to 100 per cent charge.
