New Tata Nexon and Nexon.ev: Price Expectation

Tata Motors is all set to launch the Nexon and Nexon EV facelifts in India tomorrow. Now featuring significantly altered designs, mechanical upgrades along with a load of new features, both SUVs will be looking to further establish their dominance in their respective segments. carandbike also had a chance to review both, the Nexon and the Nexon EV ahead of their launch.

The addition of more sophisticated features will surely mean that the SUVs will come at a premium over their predecessors. While several publications had reported a starting price of Rs 7.39 lakh for the Nexon after an alleged pricing leak on Facebook, Tata later released a statement clarifying that the reports were false. However, we expect the starting price of the SUV to be close to this figure and possibly range from Rs 8 to 15 lakh (ex-showroom). The EV on the other hand will be priced higher, likely in the ballpark of Rs 15 to 20 lakh (ex-showroom).
