Tata Nexon EV– Old vs New

Launched in 2020, the Nexon EV is Tata’s first and most successful attempt to enter the low-cost electric vehicle segment. With over three years and over three electric vehicle models in its portfolio, the automaker recently launched the facelifted Nexon EV. What has changed and what is new? We compare the new one with the previous one and list the upgrades.

Exterior and styling

Maintaining the overall shape of the existing Nexon EV, Tata has completely redesigned the front and rear styling of the new Nexon EV. It gets split LED headlights for the first time and even the rear looks sleek with connected taillights. The three-arrow pattern on the bumper has been replaced by vertical struts and the 16-inch wheel design is also new.

Additionally, the blue accents that accentuated the Nexon’s EV nature are gone. Instead, the facelift only has two “Nexon.EV” badges on the rear and front doors.

Interior and features

The point worth mentioning in the Nexon EV’s cabin is the large 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system that replaces the old 7-inch unit. Additionally, the semi-digital instrument cluster is replaced by a new 10.25-inch all-digital color cluster that also features three customizable displays.

With the Nexon EV facelift, Tata has also added features like a wireless charger, two fast-charging Type-C ports and three driving modes accessible from the center console. The drive dial is replaced by a conventional lever. The touchscreen HVAC system as well as the three-spoke steering wheel with illuminated Tata brand logo are new and house-mounted controls. Additionally, the interior of the Nexon EV can have three different themes depending on the variant chosen.

Transmission system

Previously named Prime and Max, the new Nexon EV version was renamed Medium Range and Long Range versions. Both are powered by the existing 30 kWh and 40.5 kWh batteries, rated at 127 horsepower and 143 horsepower, respectively. With revised batteries and internal motors, they have an increased claimed range of 325km and 465km each.
