In recent years, India has witnessed substantial growth in electric vehicle (EV) sales.

This has emerged as the most popular choice since its launch in January 2020. With sales recently surpassing the 50,000 mark in just three years, Tata Motors proudly celebrates the #Nexon50Community.

Nexon EV Transforming The Perception Of EVs

The success of the Nexon EV has played a significant role in transforming the perception of EVs in India. Previously, EVs were often considered small and undesirable. But the Nexon EV has changed this perception. With a real-world range of 150 to 300 km on a single charge, the Nexon EV is a practical daily-driveable vehicle. Its familiar design, borrowed from the internal combustion engine (ICE) version of the Nexon, has made the transition to electric mobility much smoother for customers.

Tata Motors has made great strides in expanding the Nexon EV lineup over time. They introduced the Nexon EV Max, equipped with a larger 40.5 kWh battery and a real-world range of approximately 300 km. Additionally, a more affordable base trim of the Nexon EV Max has been introduced. Thus, making electric vehicles accessible to a wider audience. Tata Motors hopes that more people will experience the promise of electric vehicles and transition to electric mobility.

Notably, the Nexon EV has contributed to 15 per cent of total Online sales. This is a commendable achievement considering that the Nexon ICE version is the highest-selling SUV in India. Tata Motors currently holds approximately 80 per cent of the 4W EV market share in India. With MG and Mahindra following in second and third place, respectively.
