Nexon EV and Nexon EV Max – 5 important differences you need to know!

Tata has launched the next model in its EV line – NEXON EV MAX!

Tata has released a new Nexon EV Max in India, priced between Rs 14.79 lakh (former showroom) and Rs 17.4 (former showroom). The new Nexon comes with a long list of new features, a few changes to the exterior, a more powerful engine and a more expensive price. The Nexon EV Max is now the best model in the Nexon EV range and is more affordable than many other EV models in the country.

The new Nexon EV Max has an extended list of features not offered by the standard Nexon EV, with updates on many aspects, including a larger battery that has increased driving range.

Although the Nexon EV Max is basically an updated Nexon EV, there are a number of differences between the two models.

Highlights of the new Nexon EV Max changes:

  • Updated Powertrain in the form of an electric motor with increased power

  • Better and bigger battery pack – gives it an extended range

  • Available in 2 versions – XZ + and XZ + Lux

  • Slight changes in appearance – new alloy wheels, rear disc brakes and colors

  • New security features

In this article, we have compared Nexon EV and Nexon EV Max. Check out the main differences between these two models.

External changes

The new Nexon EV Max has not undergone any aesthetic upgrades and still looks like its predecessor. But it gets new alloy wheels and rear disc brakes. It also comes in two new shades – Intensi-Teal and Pristine White and Daytona Gray, previously presented by Tigor EV.

The next difference is a slight decrease in ground clearance for the Nexon EV Max. It is now 200 mm – 5 mm smaller than the Nexon EV.

Max’s suspension was also re-adjusted for better handling.

Interior renovations

Nexon EV Max received a new upholstery in beige. The old model had cream shades inside.

Other new features:

  • Light transmission selection mechanism
  • “Park” mode
  • Air purifier
  • IRVM automatic dimming
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Cruise control
  • Wireless phone charger

Like the Nexon EV, the Max features a top hatch, a 7-inch touch screen, automatic AC, rear AC fans and built-in vehicle technology inside.

New security features on the Nexon EV Max:

  • Tire pressure control system
  • Electronic parking brake with automatic stop function
  • Electronic stability program
  • Help to get up from the hill
  • Hill management
  • Automatic brake lights are based on regenerative braking

Powerful installation

The standard Nexon EV comes with a 30.2 kWh battery pack and electric motor (127 horsepower and 245 Nm). But the new EV Max has a larger battery – 40.5 kW / h and a powerful engine (143PS and 250 Nm).

This increases the Max’s range to 437 km (the Nexon EV’s range was 312 km). Max can also run from 0 to 100 km / h in 9 seconds, which is impressive for electric vehicles in its segment.

Other upgrades include a four-level adjustable regenerative braking system. This improves the ability to recharge the battery. With this update, Max now supports single pedal control. (The standard Nexon EV had only one preset regenerative brake.)

It takes 8.5 hours to charge 10-90 percent through a standard EV 15A plug, and 10-100 percent through a Nexon EV Max takes 15 hours.

Charging the battery:

Standard Nexon EV: 8 hours to charge up to 20-100 percent on a 3.3 kW AC charger.

The Nexon EV Max has a 7.2 kW AC fast charging option (Rs 50,000) at home, while a 3.3 kW home charger is offered as standard.

At point 15A:

Standard EV: 8.5 hours to charge from 10 to 90 percent

Nexon EV Max: 15 hours to charge from 10 to 100 percent
