Tata Nexon EV is currently one of the most popular electric cars in the country. It is the best selling electric passenger car every month. To attract more customers, the company had launched its dark edition a few days back. Now according to the latest report, Tata Motors is going to upgrade its Nexon EV and increase its power too. Carandbike has claimed this in one of its reports.
According to the report, a leaked transport document dated August 17, 2021 reveals a power figure of 134 bhp, which is 7 bhp more than the current one. However, the torque output will remain the same at 245 Nm. Apart from this, the battery capacity is also shown in the document at 30.2 kWh as before. This means an ARAI certified drive range of 312 km on a full charge and up to 80 per cent charge in one hour (DC charging) will continue to feature.
