Tata has launched the Nexon EV in India with prices starting at Rs 13.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The car comes as the first-ever homemade electric SUV and also the cheapest offering in the Indian electric SUV segment. In the domestic market, the car goes up against the MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona Electric SUV. With such an introductory price, the car undercuts the British MG ZS EV by Rs 6.89 lakh.
A fleeting glimpse of the car won’t suggest a lot of changes from its ICE sibling. However, a closer look suggests otherwise. The front grill no more serves the purpose of feeding air into the engine and is replaced by a black gloss grille panel. On either side of the new grille is a new headlight that comes with projector headlamps, and a large fog light enclosure. The lower lip beneath the grille also comes with tri-star elements that come with blue accents to speak its electric identity. Tata is also offering a dual-tone paint scheme that comes with a white coloured roof. It gets bigger wheel arches and skid plates along with a raised front that gives the SUV a rather impressive look.
