Tata Nexon EV Max — First Drive Review
By Ninad Ambre1 year ago
The standard Tata Nexon EV has a claimed battery range of 312km. With the new Nexon EV Max, Tata Motors aims to provide a better claimed range of 437km to the buyers on a single charge. The SUV is powered by an IP67 rated 40.5kWh lithium battery pack as against the 30.2kW lithium polymer one on the existing one. This bigger battery comes mated to a permanent magnet synchronous AC motor, delivering 141bhp and 250Nm of torque. Though this car is 100kg heavier than the existing EV, it still does make quick progress. After all, Tata claims a 0-100kmph sprint in under nine seconds. So, it still has that pulling power and doesn't feel like it will face any challenge uphill. However, we shall ascertain that later when we get it for a full-fledged road test. For now, we'll focus on the city conditions where it certainly will be used most of the time.
