Tata Motors has launched the Nexon EV at a pricetag of Rs 14.74 lakh. Customers can choose between two battery options for this electric vehicle: a 40.5kWh variant and a 30kWh variant. The Nexon EV features the same design updates as its ICE counterpart.

Tata Nexon EV exteriors

The exterior styling of the 2023 Tata Nexon EV is similar to that of the ICE Nexon, with some minor differences. Tata claims that the design changes improved the vehicle's aerodynamics, resulting in a 2 per cent increase in range. A prominent LED strip just above the Tata logo dominates the front, flanked by headlamps and indicators integrated into the EV-specific bumpers. The indicators have dynamic swipe functionality, similar to those of premium vehicles. The vehicle also has new 16-inch Nexon alloy wheels and a full-width LED light bar at the rear. The trunk has a large storage capacity of 350 litres, and both the front and rear have LED signatures with different patterns for different functions. There are numerous colour options available, with each trim level offering an exclusive colour choice.
