Tata Motors has introduced its first midlife update for the Nexon.ev, now known as Nexon.ev, features distinctive design elements not found in its petrol and diesel counterparts. Additionally, the powertrain has received mechanical enhancements aimed at enhancing efficiency. Beyond cosmetic and feature enhancements, the Nexon.ev also benefits from powertrain improvements that boost overall efficiency. Pricing details for the Nexon EV facelift will be disclosed on September 14, with bookings opening on September 9. Tata Motors asserts that the updated design enhances aerodynamics and the new LED lighting elements are not only more energy-efficient but also extend the vehicle’s range.
Similar to the standard Nexon, the updates made to the Nexon EVtake inspiration from the Curvv concept. However, unlike the previous models where the Nexon and Nexon.ev looked nearly identical except for the electric blue accents, the refreshed versions now exhibit more distinct differences. Tata Motors asserts that the updated design enhances aerodynamics, and even the new LED lighting elements are more energy-efficient, which in turn contributes to an improved driving range.
Changes on the EV model include a single-tone, body-colored upper grille, whereas the ICE versions feature a contrasting black finish. The lower grille and trapezoidal headlamp housings have a unique slatted design, with the latter incorporating functional air vents. The standout feature on the EV, borrowed directly from the Curvv concept, is the full-width LED light strip spanning the front, which also serves a practical purpose by indicating the charging status. Additionally, the EV bears a ‘EV’ badge at the rear.
From the back, the Nexon.ev closely resembles its ICE counterpart, featuring connected LED tail-lamps, a prominent roof-mounted spoiler, and a robust bumper that matches the body color, complemented by contrasting black and silver accents.
Similar to the standard Nexon, the Nexon.ev also adopts a split headlamp design, showcasing sequential LED daytime running light (DRL) signatures and trapezoidal housings for the primary headlight clusters. It sports a sizeable grille on the lower bumper with a substantial plastic bar running through it, as well as a faux-silver skid plate. When viewed from the side, the Nexon.ev remains largely unaltered, although it does feature fresh wheel designs that are identical to those found on the ICE versions.
