Just recently we brought you the news that the bookings of Nexon and Altroz Dark Editions has commenced and they will be launched soon. Now, in a new video surfacing on the internet, we can say that Tata will also bring the dark edition to the Nexon EV. Mind you, this is the most affordable electric SUV in the country right now.
We believe that the upcoming Tata Nexon EV Dark Edition will be based on the top-spec, XZ+ and XZ+ Lux. The price for XZ+ and XZ+ Lux sticks to Rs 15.56 lakh and Rs 16.56 lakh respectively. These are ex-showroom, Delhi prices. Based on the above prices, we believe this dark edition of Tata Nexon EV will cost a premium of Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000.
Like the Harrier, the Nexon EV Dark Edition too gets an Atlas Black colour scheme. From the video shared above, the front profile gets blacked-out treatment and the electric blue highlight follow across the foglights trim. You do get EV badging on the grille with a similar colour scheme.
Moving to the side profile then you get contrast grey coloured alloy wheels, Dark Edition badging on the front fender and electric blue highlights on the reflectors at the rear. Moving to the rear profile you see Nexon lettering in matt black colour and the EV badging is observed on the front door and rear profile. The cabin too now gets an all-black colour scheme with electric blue highlights on the AC vents, gear knob and other parts.
In another update, Tata also updated the Nexon EV with new alloy wheels design and a refreshed infotainment system. The new five-spoke alloy wheels design carries a more subtle look than the older ones and for the infotainment unit, the physical buttons are now removed. Some functions like Home, Back and more are now available on the touchscreen itself. This update was first seen on the regular variants of the Nexon before coming out for the EV.
Powering the Tata Nexon EV is a 30.2 kWh battery pack that kicks out 129 PS of power with a peak torque of 245 Nm. The torque is observed right from the start in all EVs. Tata claims that the Nexon EV can do a 0-100 kmph sprint in just 9.99 seconds.
The Nexon EV gets an ARAI claimed range of 312 km that is good for city and short highway trips. The battery can be juiced up from 0-80% via a DC Fast Charger in just under 60 minutes while it takes 8 hours to charge the EV 100% via the home charger that the company provides.
