Apart from its partnership with HAREDA, Tata Motors has also formed a close working relationship with other companies within Tata Group’s ecosystem, including Tata Power, Tata Chemicals, Tata Auto Components, as well as Tata Motor Finance and Croma. These companies established what is called “Tata uniEVerse”. The close collaboration between Tata Group’s subsidies is expected to boost the adaptation process of the EVs in the Indian market.
From Tata Motors’ side, in the past few years, the homegrown company has worked rigorously in order to expand its EV product line-up, meeting the early needs of Indian customers for electric vehicles. As per reports, Tata’s EVs accounted for 67% shares of the EV segment in H1 FY21. Tata Nexon is the electric car model with the highest demand among Tata’s EVs.
Tata Nexon EV is equipped with a 30.2 kWh battery which sends power to the electric motor. This electric powertrain is capable of generating 126 BHP of top power and a 245 Nm of peak torque. The EV SUV is claimed to deliver a range of 312 kmph according to ARAI standards. About the charging option, the electric SUV comes with both a regular charger and a fast charger. While the standard 15A AC charger can charge the battery from 20% to 100% in 8 hours, the fast charger can boost the charging speed and charge the battery from 0% to 80% in one hour.
Similar to its ICE counterpart, Tata Nexon EV also comes with a host of comfort and convenience features.
