The Tata Nexon EV will be featured in three different trim levels, namely XM, XZ+ and XZ+ Lux. While the base XM trim will be kitted with features such as automatic climate control, two drive modes for the motor (Drive and Sport), keyless entry and push-button start, the XZ+ will additionally feature dual-tone colour options, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rear camera, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
