Tata Nexon Electric has been spotted undergoing multiple tests ahead of its official debut on December 16, 2019.
In the run-up to the launch of the Tata Nexon electric SUV, due in a couple of months, Tata Motor has already released a host of test videos of the electric vehicle to give us an insight into what the car can do on the roads.

Tata Nexon is a resounding success of the home-based carmaker in the Indian market. First launched in diesel and petrol variants, the Tata Nexon is now set to feature an electric powertrain system. According to the test video, we can see the electric Nexon has undergone through a myriad of running trials comprising of full-cycle tests at a torture track, water wading test, gradeability test, emergency lane changing test, and extreme climate conditions, among others.
The new Tata Nexon EV will debut with the company’s Ziptron electric powertrain. The Nexon EV would deliver a range of 300 km on a single charge. The water/dust proof IP67 rated battery of the electric Nexon will carry a warranty period of up to 8 years. Though information is still scarce at this point, we expect that the upcoming electric car will come with future-ready features on the table. Prices of the electric Nexon have not been revealed yet, but the home-grown auto giant has revealed that the new EV will sit in a competitive price range of Rs 15 -17 Lakh.
Tata Motors’ EV range in India began with the introduction of Tigor EV for the fleet market in June 2019. Last month, the Tigor EV with an extended drive range of 213 km was introduced to the mass market customers. The Tata Tigor EV comes with a 21.5 kWh battery pack for longer range, 2 fast-charging ports along with slow AC charging system. This is the best offering by Tata Motors in terms of electric vehicles until now, but we expect the upcoming electric SUVs to offer even more.
With the Indian Government’s push for EV charging infrastructure, Tata Motors, in conjunction with Tata Power, will establish about 500 EV charging stations with fast chargers by 2021. In July 2019, Tata also announced its plan to launch four electric vehicles within the next two years, including the electric versions of Tigor, Nexon, Altroz and a yet-to-be-known vehicle.
