Tata Motors has unveiled the Nexon EV Prime at the NADA EV Expo 2022. The Nexon EV Prime’s models, inspired from the Nexon EV Max, get minimal design changes and new added features as that of the outgoing Nexon EV.
The Nexon EV Prime’s design is similar to its predecessors. However, the new EV comes with new design changes such as dual-tone body colour, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, front DRLs, and EV badging. And for interior, the e-SUV gets a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, 7-inch infotainment system, leather-wrapped steering wheel and 60:40 split seats, among others.
The new EV comes with updated features such as indirect Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), cruise control, multi-mode regenerative braking system, and 35 smart connected features accessed via a Tata Motors ZConnect Mobile App.
