Tata Nexon EV India launch confirmed: Checkout price and specifications
The Battery Management System (BMS) in the Ziptron powertrain is designed for extended battery life of up to eight years and will offer consistent performance.
New Delhi: Tata Tigor electric has been already launched in India and now just after few weeks of announcing its latest electric car, Tata Motors has revealed that Nexon Electric SUV will be launched in India. This was confirmed officially by Tata Motors. New Tata Nexon electric will be priced in the Rs 15 lakh to Rs 17 lakh range. It will source power from advanced lithium-ion cells which will give a drive range of about 300 kms on a single charge. The battery pack will also be liquid-cooled and will be packed in a solid IP67 case which provides high strength outer shell to protect critical electric vehicle components.
According to Mr. Shailesh Chandra, President – Electric Mobility Business & Corporate Strategy, Tata Motors Ltd. said, “We are proud to announce that Nexon EV will be available for personal buyers in India from Q4 (Jan-Mar) FY19-20. Powered by the cutting-edge Ziptron technology, Nexon EV promises to address the barriers that exist in the EV market today and will deliver a thrilling on-road performance, ensuring zero-emission.
The Battery Management System (BMS) in the Ziptron powertrain is designed for extended battery life of up to eight years and will offer consistent performance. It is a permanent magnet AC motor with regenerative braking which charges the battery on the drive. The powertrain also gets a dedicated cooling circuit in a bid to provide consistent performance in hot weather conditions. Expected to be priced between ₹ 15 and ₹ 17 lakh, the Nexon EV will be launched in the last quarter (Q4) of FY2020 and will be joined by the Altroz EV later in 2020. The Ziptron powertrain will also make its way in a range of Tata’s future EVs. So we expect the next-generation Tigor EV and the upcoming Tiago EV to also get the same powertrain.
