Tata Motors India has announced that the brand’s popular compact SUV the Tata Nexon has become the first Indian car to be published on the International Dismantling Information System (IDIS) a platform for End-of-Life Vehicles, which is a central repository of ‘Manufacturer Compiled Information’. With this achievement, Tata Motors reiterates with the brand’s commitment making the entire life cycle of its vehicle sustainable.
The IDIS central repository is used by 25+ global manufacturers from over 40 countries across Europe and Asia with the Nexon becoming the first car from India to join this elite group. Tata Motors will provide all relevant information for responsible vehicle handling, starting with information about draining automotive fluids, the neutralization of airbags and seat belt tensioners and all the way up to the dismantling of components containing particularly hazardous substances.
To work towards a cleaner environment, Tata Motors will also provide Indian Authorised Vehicle Scrapping Facilities (AVSF) information on environmentally safe dismantling practices for them to implement and help save the environment. The publishing of Tata Nexon ELV on IDIS also complements the Vehicle Scrappage Policy and Automotive Industry Standards (AIS 129), allowing for preservation and improvement of the quality of the environment as well as energy conservation.
The Tata Nexon comes with an internal combustion engine (ice) with both petrol and diesel options and a 100% fully-electric powertrain, called the Nexon EV. The ICE Nexon is powered by a BS6 emission compliant 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged Revotron petrol engine that produces 120 PS of power and 170 Nm of torque matched to a 6-speed manual transmission and an option of a 6-speed AMT gearbox. The Nexon also comes with a diesel motor, a BS6 compliant 1.5-litre turbocharged Revotorq diesel engine that produces 110 PS of power and 260 Nm of torque available in a 6-speed manual as well as a 6-speed AMT transmission.
The electric-powered Nexon EV comes with an IP67 standards-compliant Liquid-Cooled Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor coupled to a 30.2 kWh lithium-ion liquid-cooled battery pack that can develop 129 PS of power and 245 Nm of torque matched to a single-speed transmission. The Tata Nexon EV comes with an ARAI tested range of 312 km on a single charge.
