What are Electric Vehicles?
Electric Vehicles are essentially (in this context) 4 wheel cars which are powered by electric motors rather than traditional revving engines. Examples of popular electric vehicles are the Toyota Prius, or any Tesla car. Electric vehicles are all the rage right now, since people are becoming more and more aware of the cost of possessing a traditional vehicle. As people become more and more aware of their carbon footprint, they wish to move further and further away from traditional forms of polluting vehicles. Thus, since the year 2015, electric vehicles have been all the jazz in the car industry.
What is Tata Nexon?
The Tata Nexon is a compact SUV from the popular Tata Motors car company. The company is based in India, and has also created other famous models such as the Harrier, Safari, and Tiago. The Nexon however, has been one of the bestsellers from the brand ever since it was revealed way back when. Part of the appeal is that the architecture the car was built on received a perfect 5 star rating during global safety and crash tests. So an Indian car, made in India received a 5 star rating in safety from an international agency. Unheard of. Since it’s reveal in 2015, the Nexon has been one of the most popular and powerful models in the Tata Motors lineup, making it no surprise that people were clamoring for it to get the EV treatment, much like Tata’s popular sedan, the Tigor.
What is Tata Nexon EV?
Well, it is exactly what it sounds like, an electric version of the Tata Nexon. This means that instead of rocking the usual diesel or petrol powertrains, the Tata Nexon EV actually sports a battery powered motor. As with most electric cars, the battery is rechargeable, and provides a certain amount of range. This car looks different from the original Nexon, but not drastically. There are both minor and major design changes on the interior and exterior. Starting from the outside, there are new blue color elements, as well as a revised grille, and headlamps, but generally, the same stance is maintained. On the inside, lighter materials have been used to give the car a more premium appearance. The traditional gear lever has also been replaced by a sporty wheel shifter. Lastly, a new steering is also implemented. All in all, if you liked the look of the Nexon, you’ll like the EV even more.
