That was a quick overview of specs missing in both the cars, Let’s talk more about Mileage, Fast Charging Time its the price, Waterproof rating, power supply, driving mode, Top Speed and Warranty.
What is the real mileage provided by Tata Nexon Electrical Vehicle Cars?
All the three variants Tata Nexon EV have confirmation of at least 320KM per charge, But as comparing and reviewing 3 youtube videos on the mileage test it’s pretty sure that the car gives a sufficient mileage of at least 220 to 250KM per Charge with proper weight, AC ON and with some other features. But as an average, we can count at least 220 KM, Because this totally depends upon how you ride the car.
What is Charging time, speed mode and price to fully charge this Car?
Cars are provided with two-mode charging slot one is Fast and slow mode, The Fast mode can charger you car from 0-100% in almost 1.5 hours and in normal (slow charger) it will take almost 10 hours. The fast charger also called as Charger type 2 will supply DC power and slow charger will supply AC current. The price for charging in slow charger from 0-100 % is 300Rs Approx and for Fast Charger 500 Rs Approx.
There are two types of driving mode in this Car S and D – If you want to drive in a slow steady speed for around 60-80 which is economy speed then you need to select D mode, And if you want to go at a higher speed, 120 which is maximum then you need to switch to S – Speed mode. Although being an electric car this vehicle can go 0-100 in 9.9 seconds (Which is really awesome).

Where is the battery of the car located at?
The battery of the car is located in the middle of the car below the seats, The Battery supplies the power of 32Kilowatt which is enough to run the car. Also as thinking about getting it dusty or wet, The battery is protected by IP67 waterproof protection which will prevent it in water with 1 meter of range.
What is the warranty of the battery as well as the electric motor?
The Battery and the electric motor of Tata Nexon EV are valid for 1,60,000 KM or 8 Years of warranty whichever is first.
Tata Nexon EV review:
According to me, The car is really awesome with all features it’s worth the price, Also Electric technology is the future rather than being dependent on Fuels. Probably a normal petrol vehicle gives an average of 25-30 Km per hour. If we also consider the price of petrol which is almost 90 Rs in Mumbai, Will hardly give 300 Km at the price of 900 Rs. Whereas a Fast charger station would charge you 500 Rs and will give you 250 Km per charge. So this seems beneficial as well as the environment is friendly. So this car is really worthy and one should definitely give a try who is having a budget of 17 Lakh for a custom build electric Car.
This car uses ZIPTRON technology which comprises a highly efficient permanent magnet AC motor providing superior performance on demand. It also offers best in industry dust and waterproof battery system meeting IP67 standards. Further, ZIPTRON utilizes smart regenerative braking to charge the battery while on the drive.
The Review is based about my personal views on this car, I’ve not driven the car personally although I would leave some genuine youtube video links so that you yourself can watch the video and then judge the car.
Although the Indian customer interest for this car is increasing day by day, From past 10 months when the car was launched they sold only 1000 units of this car till the month of August 2020. It’s been 4/12/2020 and the company have created a milestone by selling another 1000 units in 3 months. The car is fully made in India and assembled in Ranjangaon, Pune.
