How easy it is to get refund back if i don't go ahead eventually after test drive?
It is a very straight forward process

All bookings are fully refundable

I got a call directly from the marketing team

They mentioned a state subsidy for purchases in Maharashtra and some added benefits from their side which will be disclosed at the time of the launch

The subsidy would help in getting the price down by quite a bit

I found this online and it seems to be in line with what their team was talking about

Thanks for sharing this. Even MG told me something like this similar on phone so now itís more clearer on what they were talking about

Also donít forget if you are taking a car loan, Tax deduction upto 1.5 lakh can be claimed on interest paid under section 80EEG

All in all, for Mumbai users like us, EV looks like a very tempting option with all benefits we get.

I completely understand that, just pointed it out

Just got back from the test drive of the MG

Very disappointed by the sales team, very limited knowledge. No idea about the features!

They were very shrewd and behaved like they were doing me a favour, only allowed me to take the car for a short spin.

This was in stark contrast to Tata Motors where the executives were eager and interested. They seems to be well trained and responded to my queries. Looking forward to driving the Nexon EV.

MG seemed good but the handling was a bit off. Also rear space is better than Kona but very limited. Suspension was more supple than the Kona. I believe Nexon will ace it in this department.

MG will trump the Nexon on snob value, battery range and also probably on interiors. However I would buy the Nexon any day.

Agree, but price is going to be a crucial factor too. Anything around 15L is going to be an good deal for Nexon.

If the Nexon EV actually becomes available around 15L, it would really be a big announcement of EV arrival in mainstream. The top trim diesel Nexon BSIV retails around 12L OTR. A BSVI face lift one would be even higher.

Just about 3 L for a full fledged EV! That would be unbelievable becoming reality overnight.

From the images it appears that the battery unit is projecting out too much from underneath. Hope Tata would have looked into it otherwise ground clearance may be a bit lower.
Also good to see is that the charging slot is at its usual location where fuel filling slot is for the ICE cars. This is convenient in terms of usage and easy to adapt.

It is much closer than that. Top trim diesel + automatic retails for 13+ lakhs on road. In a few states like Karnataka, its almost 14 lakhs on road due to high road taxes. BSVI prices are increased by Rs ~40,000 for top trim models and will result in Rs 50,000 increase in OTR price.

Of course, we need to take into account of insurance prices of Nexon EV as well. But as many states are waiving off-road taxes for EVs, Nexon EV will just cost ~2 lakhs more than top end diesel automatic. Also, transmission of EV will be much better than AMT.

Daeym, your post reminded me that my son or any future generations would not exactly understand what I'm saying when I tell them stories of how I quickly upshifted to have a quick escape on a steep turning road around a fast bus...

Was focused on the impending death of ICEs. Totally ignored the fact that the fun part of driving - gear shifts is dying too.
Sorry

Not just convenient but also thoughtful and safer than frontal placement. In case of ZS EV and Kona EV even a moderate impact frontal crash can render the charging slot useless. Also one had to bend a bit to insert the charging gun into the slot in case of ZS EV which is not ergonomic.
