The launch is confirmed for September 7, 2023, by Tata.ev
Following the launch of the new Tata Nexon (ICE) internal combustion engine, the automaker is now gearing up to unveil its all-electric sibling. The new Nexon EV is expected to have a design that is almost identical to its ICE sibling, although a trailer from Tata Motors reveals that it will receive some EV-specific design details. This year, September 7, 2023, will mark the launch of Nexon.ev.

The trailer only offers a brief look at the front of the Nexon EV before moving on to the charging port, although you’ll notice some design tweaks from ICE. The Nexon EV will have a body-colored grille with a full-width light bar under the hood’s base. Meanwhile, the rear has the same taillight design as the ICE model, featuring V-shaped LED light guides and light bar elements. The trailer also suggests that Tata has removed the blue design lines from the electric vehicle’s exterior – a design element found on all of the brand’s current electric vehicles.
The electric car’s interior is still a mystery, though we expect it to be almost as reflective as the ICE model with its two 10.25-inch screens. Features are also expected to be shared between the two models, although Tata may offer additional kits for the electric vehicle. In addition to the 6 airbags on the standard Nexon, you can expect the EV to come with 3-point seat belts for passengers in the rear seat, blind view monitors, and 360-degree cameras.
In terms of powertrain, Tata is expected to take over the powertrain from the existing Nexon EV line. The SUV is expected to retain both battery options – a 30.2kWh unit from the Nexon EV Prime and a 40.5kWh unit from the Nexon EV Max – with reports suggesting Tata may ditch the name difference. Currently, the Nexon EV Prime has a range of up to 312 km on a full charge, while the Max can travel up to 453 km.
The Nexon EV has firmly established itself as the best-selling all-electric passenger car on the Indian market. The electric vehicle surpassed the 50,000-sold mark earlier this year and helped make Tata a segment leader in India. The Nexon EV has no direct competitor, its closest competitor being the similarly priced Mahindra XUV400.
