Do the EVolution
The car as we know it is at a critical evolutionary stage and Tata intends to be among the flag-bearers of this change with the Nexon EV.

India’s EV revolution is slowly but steadily taking shape. We’ve had major launches and announcements in this space over the last year or so and while Tata is no stranger to electric vehicles having already put Tigor EVs on the road, the Nexon EV is well and truly the product that spearhead its EV aspirations in India. Before it goes on sale, we got a chance to get behind the wheel of one to find out what’s what.

The Nexon EV debuts a new look for Tata’s popular compact SUV with a thoroughly redesigned front end and minor updates to the rear end as well. There are hints of the Land Rover Discovery Sport in the way the nose has been styled. New here are the headlamps with eye catching LED detailing for the DRLs that also double up as the turn indicators. The bumper now sports a sharper, more chiseled look with black inserts housing the fog lamp units. Specific to the Nexon EV are the electric blue highlights on the front, the sides and the rear as well replacing the regular Nexon’s white highlights. There are new alloy wheels on offer which, all four combined, are lighter by a kilogram compared to the IC variants that have been on sale. Towards the rear the Nexon gets LED detailing for the tail lamps along with Ziptron and EV badges that adorn the nose and the sides too.
