Nexon EV Max — that might sound a little ‘meme-y’, but that’s the name of Tata Motors’ latest addition to the Nexon EV lineup, which has just been launched with prices starting from Rs 17.74 lakh (ex-showroom).

It is also faster than the standard Nexon EV, completing a 0-100kmph run in just 9 seconds. In place of the standard Nexon EV’s 30.2kWh battery pack comes a larger 40.5kWh unit, giving it an ARAI-claimed range of 437km, which is 125km more than the standard Nexon EV. The Nexon EV Max receives two charging options — a 3.3kW wallbox charger, and a 7.2kW AC fast charger, the latter of which will juice up the battery in 6.5 hours for a full charge. The larger battery pack also supports upto 50kW of DC fast charging, which will take 56 minutes to charge the Nexon EV Max from 0 to 80 per cent.
The exteriors of the Nexon EV Max remain largely the same, but it gets an exclusive Intensi-Teal paint scheme, along with Daytona Grey and Pristine White. The interiors too remain identical, with the exception of a revamped control knob and Markana beige interiors. The Nexon EV Max is being offered in two trims — the XZ+ , and the XZ+ Lux. Some of the features standard across both trims include three driving modes, wireless smartphone charging, cruise control, ESP, electronic parking brake with auto-hold, and smartwatch integration. The interesting bit is the Multi-mode regen which will allow you to adjust the level of regenerative braking upto four different levels. The multi-mode regen also enables automatic brake lamps to warn other road users of your presence.
The XZ+ Lux additionally receives leatherette front ventilated seats, powered sunroof, an auto-dimming IRVM, and an air purifier.
