Tata Motors Starts The Delivery Of Electric Nexon
Undergoing the efforts of returning to the normal life following the precautions required for protection from the coronavirus, domestic carmaker Tata Motors has started delivering Nexon EV in a few of the cities. The dealers located in the green zone are operating their functions strictly according to the permission granted by the local authorities.
According to the sources of the company, it has started deliveries of Nexon EV to the customers in Chennai, Bangaluru, and Ahmadabad on a priority basis. The sources said that the company will soon start the deliveries of Nexon EV in other cities also according to the relaxation given by the government based on zone. It would be interesting to know that before lockdown during March 2020, the company had delivered 198 units of Nexon EV within the country, and was in a better position than compared to its extreme rivals including Hyundai Kona and MG eZS.
Under the hood, Tata Nexon EV is powered by the company’s new Ziptron engine that is claimed to deliver an average of 312 km on a single charge. The engine is mated with a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) that generates the power of 127 hp and the torque of 245Nm. It is supported by a 30.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It is offered with the starting price of Rs. 13.99 lakh and goes high up to Rs. 15.99 lakh (ex-showroom price). Besides, electronic Nexon, the company has also electronic Altroz in the pipeline.
This is year is turning as the worst year for the automobile sector in India. Most of the dealers are still having the stock of BS-IV vehicles in their yard, which does not seem to be easily sold in the coming months. Yet, the industry experts believe that the situation will improve with people preferring to buy personal vehicles instead of traveling in the public transport facility for regular movement.
