Not all that you will be getting for the rupees 1.5 lakh more, that this car demands over the standard. Nexon ev, with the bullet points. Out of the way lets talk about the exterior of the new nexon evmax. One might think that it is business as usual and for the most part it is, but there are two new changes and one of them is very important, starting with the first change it is. The design of these diamond cut alloy wheels, whereas the standard version has an 8 spoke design. These have a 5 spoke design, but the more important change is right behind this rear wheel, which is the addition of new disc brakes and having disc brakes on all four wheels, definitely gives better control to the driver under emergency. Braking. In other exterior news. The media car that we drove was sporting, the new intensity color that suits the car. Well, four ev badges around the car lets. Everyone else know that you are not worrying about your fuel bills anymore. However, there is no max badging on the car. The only way one can tell the max, apart from the standard version on the outside, is by differentiating among their alloy wheel designs.

Then there are the mad blue accents on the lower grille window line and at the rear, signifying this nexons eevee origins, while the tri arrow shaped led drls, give good illumination the absence of led headlights and fog. Lamps is a miss in our minds with that done. Lets hop inside the ev maxs cabin and see whats new Music once inside. The first thing new buyers will appreciate and existing users would envy, is the addition of this new drive, selector knob that now features a digital display. This will help the driver identify if they are in park, reverse neutral or drive much more easily under direct sunlight when compared to the single led dot setup in the standard version. The knob now also gets a textured dial, which i feel gives better rotation feedback right. Beside the selector knob, there are drive mode selection buttons for the eco and sport mode, which we will talk about shortly and here below the knob are the new, auto hold and electronic parking brake selectors then, on the left side of the console, you have the selector Buttons for the new four mode break regeneration system, while at level zero. The system disengages completely. The other three modes are quite distinct in field 2. at level 1. The break regeneration is noticeable, but not interfering and at level 3 it gets a lot more noticeable. Another big upgrade to the evmaxs cabin is the addition of these new ventilated seats, which are wrapped in what tata calls a macarana beige.

Colored leatherette, ventilated seats have gained popularity in the past few years in total tata claims that this evmax has 30 new features to which i will get to in a bit. But lets start our drive and talk about whats under the hood, the under body and the back. The nexon evmax makes 143 ps of power, and 250 newton meters of torque tata has also electronically limited. This evs top speed at 140 kilometers per hour, whereas the standard nexon ev limits at 120 kilometers per hour during the launch event tata announced that the max can do a 0 to 100 sprint in under 9 seconds. And while we have not confirmed this using any kind of professional equipment in sports mode, the car certainly reaches the 100 kmph mark with lightning speed, pushing you against the seat. On the other hand, the ct and eco modes keep the power delivery very amiable, something that first time, ev buyers will appreciate. Overall, the nexon evmax is nimble, easy to maneuver and a comfortable companion to zip zap or zoom around town, the larger 40.5 kilowatt an hour battery pack and motor have an 8 year or 160 000 kilometers warranty. While tata has announced a 437 kilometer, arai certified range on a full charge. During our drive experience, the ev showed an estimated range of 282 kilometers at 99 charge with a consumption of 113 watt hours per kilometer, keeping brake regeneration and other factors in mind. It is safe to say that the vehicle was good for 300 plus kilometers for the day, based on the specs of this nexon ev lets do some simple calculations to understand better what it would be like to live with on a day to day basis, the new Nexon ev max now features fast charging as well, while the standard 3.

3 kilowatt portable charger is standard issue and can give a zero to full charge in 15 to 16 hours buyers. This time also have an option to opt for a 7.2 kilowatt, fast charger at an additional cost. Additionally, the ev supports fast charging of up to 50 kilowatt an hour which can charge the ev max from 0 to 80 percent. In less than an hour at an average cost of rupees 6.90 per kilowatt hour in delhi, it will cost the buyer under rupees 400 to fully charge the nexon eb max keeping energy loss and other factors in mind. Electricity costs are likely to go up a little when the ev is charged using a 7.2 kilowatt or 50 kilowatt fast charger. During our drive, the ev consumed between 113 watt hour to 157 watt hour of power per kilometer, depending upon driver behavior, brake regeneration and outside temperature. At this consumption rate, the nexon ev costed, roughly a rupee per kilometer, and for every one kilowatt an hour of the total 40.5 kilowatt hour battery pack, we ran 7.4 kilometers coming back to the noteworthy upgrades inside the cabin of the evmax. It now comes with an air purifier, a feature that a city dweller like myself, truly does appreciate. Then there is the electric sunroof, the harman sound system and the centrally mounted 7 inch touchscreen the glove box is cooled and the nexons itpms feature will alert you if one or more tires have low pressure.

The max also has cruise control for added highway convenience, keep in mind that this is a basic cruise control and will only help the driver regulate, speed, Music, this being only an upgrade to the standard version of the nexon ev. Of course, a lot of the features between the two cars are shared and, as i mentioned earlier, there are 30 new features in this max version. But one thing that has not changed is the 350 liter boot space, which is a pleasant surprise, considering more often than not automakers compromise on storage or interior space in order to fit in larger battery packs or motors available. Only in the xz plus and the xz plus lux variants, the tata nexon evmax demands a rupees, 1.5 lakh markup over the standard version. And if you choose to go in for the 7.2 kilowatt an hour fast charger, then youll have to shell out rupees. 50. 000. More while i doubt most buyers will question tatas, brilliant pricing here.
