Tata is planning to update its popular electric car, the Nexon EV in the Indian market. The brand has already received type approval from the ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) for a more powerful power unit. Leaked type approval documents reveal that the Nexon EV will come with a powerful electric motor but the same battery. The brand may make a few changes to the exteriors to differentiate the new Nexon EV.
Leaked Type-Approval Documents
According to the leaked type-approval documents, the new Tata Nexon EV will come with a 100kW electric motor. The motor 100kW output is equivalent to 136 PS of power. The current Nexon EV produces 129 PS of power and 245 Nm of torque. The battery remains the same with an energy capacity of 30.2 kWh and 94.5 Ah battery capacity. This leads us to believe that the overall range of the electric car is likely to remain unchanged. ARAI claims that the Tata Nexon EV can return a range of 312 km on a single charge. As per AIS-039, the Nexon EV consumes 119.6 Wh per km which gives us a real-time range estimate of 252 km on a full charge.
Tata Nexon EV Dark
Recently, Tata Motors updated its Dark range which earlier only consisted of the Tata Harrier. Now the Dark range includes the Altroz, Nexon, Harrier and Nexon EV. The Nexon EV Dark only comes with cosmetic changes and no changes to the mechanical or electric department. The new Nexon EV could also feature minor cosmetic updates to the electric vehicle to keep the model fresh.
Tata Tigor EV with Ziptron
Tata Motors also unveiled the new Tata Tigor EV with Ziptron technology. The Ziptron electric architecture made its debut on the Nexon EV and is now being passed on to the upcoming electric sedan. The Tata Tigor EV will make its market debut on 31 August 2021 and come with a 75 Hp/170Nm electric motor and a powerful battery that will allow a range of around 250 km on a charge.
