Tata is readying an all-electric vehicle based on the Nexon. The same was teased earlier in a YouTube series of short videos where it was seen getting tested in the rough terrain en-route Leh. Now, it has been spied once again, courtesy Auto.NDTV.
As known previously, the Tata Nexon EV will share the exterior body panels with the mid-cycle facelift for the Nexon, which is slated for the early 2020 launch. As revealed in the earlier report, it will have a semi-digital panel which displays current speed in an analogue format, while battery levels, range and other such information is displayed digitally. This instrument panel looks similar to that the one found on the Tata Harrier and the Tata Altroz.
The Tata Nexon EV will make use of Ziptron technology to source its power. For the uninitiated, this is nothing but an in-house developed EV powertrain technology. The company has earlier revealed the Ziptron has been tested for over a million kilometres and is proven for an efficient high voltage system, zippy performance, long-range and has fast charging capabilities. Also it makes use of waterproof battery system which meets IP67 standards. The company will offer the Ziptron which an impeccable 8-years warranty. The Ziptron is made up of advanced lithium-ion cells and is good enough to return a commendable 300 kms range on a single charge.
The battery pack of the Ziptron features liquid-cooling and comes packed in IP67 casing which protects critical electric vehicle components under extreme conditions. The Nexon EV uses a permanent magnet AC motor and comes with smart regenerative braking.
The Tata Nexon EV is slated for early 2020 launch and its ex-showroom prices are expected to fall in the range of INR 15-17 lakh.
