Tata has unveiled its first Electric SUV, Nexon EV. Tata earlier this year told us about how they have been testing the Nexon EV in the harshest of terrains including Leh, Spiti Valley and the deserts of Rajasthan.
Tata has also ensured that it will be as good in terms of safety and built like the combustion engine models. It will be available in 3 colours Teal Blue, Moonlit Silver and Glacier white.
Design & Styling
Nexon EV is based on IMPACT 2.0 design language. It gets a sleek headlamp and fog lamp design along with a chrome line running all from one headlamp to the other which Tata calls as a Humanity Line upfront. This makes it look fresher and helps in improving road presence.
On the inside also it is different from the ongoing model. The instrument cluster and the steering looks similar to what we have seen on Altroz.
All the white elements from Nexon have been changed to Blue. It also gets Tri Arrow design in the lower half of the front grille which looks quite good.
Like the outgoing model, Nexon EV will also be loaded with features to the brim. It will get a 7 inch touchscreen system sporting Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. It will be mated to 8 speakers which offers excellent sound quality.
