As compared to its ICE sibling, Nexon EV facelift has some unique features derived from Curvv Concept

After unveiling Nexon ICE facelift, Tata Motors has now unveiled the facelift version of Nexon EV. Tata has already changed the EV name to a .ev suffix. This will apply to all of Tata’s upcoming electric cars. The .ev suffix sounds more modern and vibrant, something similar Mahindra’s BE.05, BE.07, XUV.e8, XUV.e9, etc.

Nexon.ev facelift Updates in design

Existing Nexon ICE and EV versions are quite identical. While the facelift versions will also be not very different, the overall quantum of changes will be on the higher side. For example, Nexon.ev facelift will be getting a full-width LED light bar. This ensures a more premium and sophisticated look and feel for Nexon.ev facelift. The inspiration comes from Curvv Concept that will reach production stage in 2024.

Other changes include some touch-ups to the grille and bumper section. Apart from these, rest of the profile is largely the same as Nexon ICE facelift. A significant percentage of the features have been borrowed from Curvv concept.

Nexon.ev facelift – Variants and Range

Tata Motors has renamed the existing Prime and Max versions to something simpler such as Medium Range (MR) and Long Range (LR). Trim levels on offer are Creative+. Fearless, Fearless+, Fearless+ S, Empowered and Empowered+. These are offered in MR as well as LR.

Nexon EV Medium Range variant has a 30.2kWh battery and offers a range of 325 km. The Long Range variant utilizes a 40.5kWh battery, with a range of 465 km (MIDC). Range in both variants is now 12 kms more than before.  Power output in the MR variant is at 127 hp and 215 Nm, this is down by 2 hp and 30 Nm while in the LR variant it is at 143 hp and 215 Nm – down by 35 Nm (in comparison to earlier Nexon EV). Both versions come with a 7.2kW AC charger as standard. Take a look at the official TVC below.

The latest iteration of the Nexon.ev introduces a cutting-edge Gen-2 permanent magnet synchronous motor, which boasts a remarkable 20 percent reduction in weight, a 30 percent reduction in the use of rare earth materials, and significant enhancements in both cooling and efficiency. Tata asserts that upgraded aerodynamics have led to a 2 percent increase in range, as well as impressive performance metrics such as a 0-100kph acceleration time of 8.9 seconds, a top speed of 150km, and notable improvements in NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) levels.
