While Tata Motors has unveiled the Nexon electric SUV, the launch is expected to take place in the coming months.
The Nexon EV’s lithium-ion battery is of 30.2 kWh capacity and feeds a permanent-magnet AC motor that puts 129PS and 245 Nm through the front wheels.
This allows for a brisk 0 to 100 kmph time of 9.9s, the top-speed hasn’t been mentioned but as per Tata Motor’s internal testing, the SUV will do over 300 km on a full charge.
There is a single-speed gearbox with two drive mode options, Drive and Sport. In the Sport mode, there is a torque boost of up to 60 per cent.
The liquid-cooled battery is placed in the Nexon’s floor and has an IP67 dust and water resistance capability, among the highest of the kind.
There is both regular and fast charging capability. Through a DC fast charger, the Nexon EV will reach 80 per cent capacity in 60 minutes. The car can also be plugged into any standard power socket, which takes eight hours to get from 20 to 80 per cent charge.
The battery and motor carry a warranty of 8 years/1,60,000 kms.
