Additionally, the Nexon EV will also be seen with different driving modes like Drive and Sport.
As far as the battery backup is concerned, the Nexon EV is claimed to offer a range of 312km on a single charge. Moreover, the company will also be offering various charging options with the electric vehicle. The CCS2 fast charger can easily charge the battery up to 80 percent in just 1 hour. However, the SUV will be charged in 8 hours via home wall-box charger. The Nexon EV will also be offered with a provision of charging via 15A socke, but that would be requiring overnight charging. 2020 Tata Altroz Premium Hatchback Launched in India at Rs 5.29 Lakh.
The overall design of the Nexon EV is largely inspired from the facelifted counterpart.

Apart from this, the car will come equipped with 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a Harman sound system, sunroof, auto AC with rear AC vents, and more.
The company will be announcing the prices for the all-new Nexon EV tomorrow at an event. As the Nexon EV will be offered in three variants, it is expected to get a starting price of Rs 15 lakh. Moreover, the top-of-the-line variant – XZ+ LUX could get a price somewhere around Rs 17 lakh. If launched at these prices, the Nexon EV will undercut its rivals by a fair margin.
