Nexon EV Facelift Battery and Range
Tata Motors has decided to replace the Prime and Max nomenclatures with the new Nexon.ev’s Medium Range and Long Range variants. The Medium Range variant boasts a 30kWh battery, while the Long Range variant is equipped with a 40.5kWh battery pack.
These batteries offers an impressive ARAI claimed range of 325 km and 465 km, respectively. Compared to the outgoing Nexon EV, this represents an increase in range by 12 km.
2023 Nexon EV Motor and Performance
Perhaps the most intriguing feature of the Nexon EV facelift is its bi-directional charging capability, enabling Vehicle to Vehicle and Vehicle to Load charging. Essentially, this technology allows you to charge other electric vehicles and electric appliances using your Nexon EV.
The electric powertrain in the medium-range variant delivers 129 HP and 215 Nm of torque, while the Long Range version offers 142 HP and 215 Nm of torque. Interestingly, the power output remains unchanged, with a minor reduction of 30 Nm and 38 Nm in torque, respectively.
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/hr is achieved in a swift 8.9 seconds, and the Nexon EV facelift boasts a top speed of 150 km/hr. Additionally, the vehicle offers three driving modes—Eco, City, and Sport—and features a 4-level regeneration system.

Although the precise pricing of the Nexon EV facelift remains undisclosed, it’s anticipated to come at a premium compared to the previous model’s price range of Rs 14.49-19.54 lakh (ex-showroom). Keep an eye out for the official pricing announcement on September 14, with bookings commencing on September 9.
