thought it was Feb 5th and had checked everyday for a week after that. I wanted to know what's the difference between this and company lease policy.

By the way, when is your car delivery expected?

Not sure, this is the info I got from the sales manager.

Pretty soon. I have asked for the dealer to evaluate my EcoSport for exchange. If the pricing is good, then I will go ahead with my delivery soon, else it might get delayed.

Off Topic: I took a proper test drive of Hyundai Kona yesterday along the same route as the one I took for Nexon. Kona is miles ahead of Nexon in terms of power delivery and consumption. For the same distance of 23Kms, Nexon range dropped by 28Kms, while in Kona, it reduced by 15Kms.
Kona also offers a lot more features and most importantly six airbags, but it is almost 9L more than the Nexon XZ+. Kona will consistently deliver over 350Kms, but Nexon will vary between 220-270Kms depending on the driving style. Not an apple to apple comparison.

One area where Nexon is much better is the ride quality. Kona has low GC and the ride is hard.

I am yet to see a nexon EV on the road, not sure if it has started or not. Mine is another month from now.

Kona/e-niro have the best efficiency in EV. Even with a 39kwh pack, it beats ZS which has 44kwh pack in terms of Range, a kona owner recently completed Bengaluru - Coimbatore stretch on single charge with no top ups on the way. That range is not attainable by ZS let alone nexon.
However, Kona is expensive by a good margine over Nexon and for me the back seat is not a comfortable place to be in that car, at least for adults. The under thigh support is underwhelming in that and will lead to cramps for adults in long drives. However, the front seats are something else in terms of power, drive, and creature comfort.

MID readings wont give the accurate picture. No doubt that Kona is the better one, but the best way to compare the range/charge for EVs under similar conditions is to fully charge them and drive them in parallel until the battery exhausts or until the car refuses to move forward, not just the same route but also at the same time & traffic conditions.

Hello All,

My booking is almost a month old and now I got email from Tata some time back as below:

"We are pleased to inform you that we are initiating the shipment of Nexon EV from our manufacturing facilities in Pune. The first batch of customer deliveries are expected to commence from 1st Mar 2020 for our XM and XZ+ customers based out of following city clusters – Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi & NCR, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kanpur, Kochi, Kolkata, Kottayam, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune & Surat cities. Shortly, we shall be in Kannur, Kozhikode & Thiruvananthapuram. Deliveries for XZ+ LUX variant will be initiated from 20th Mar 2020.

Representatives from our charging partner (Tata Power) have already initiated reach out to our customers for scheduling of site audits for home charger installation. We would urge you to kindly have your site audit scheduled and charger installed as it is a key prerequisite for delivery of your Nexon EV.

Our Tata Motors Product Specialists & dealer representatives will also be in touch with you to initiate and complete the financing formalities for purchase of Nexon EV. Request you to kindly complete all the formalities, including submission of any documents as required.

Completion of above actions would enable us to expedite your deliveries and continue to give you a pleasant experience during your journey with Tata Motors."

That should give you an idea of the delivery timeline for the Nexon EV. Has anyone been contacted by people from Tata power so far?

I just got a call from Tata Motors sales person in Bangalore saying that from next month Road tax will be applicable and price will go up by 40k. Not sure if this is a sales tactic or true. Anyone else heard about this?

They are not starting any deliveries this month as it is. So I am not sure what he means by price going up if nothing is delivered this month.

Road tax is waived off, nothing to this effect of changing was announced recently, in fact, the state budget is yet to happen. So the sales person is just blabbering nonsense.

I had assumed as much that it's a sales tactic to pressure into booking as I was showing interest.

I got a do a test drive of the Nexon EV. First things first, it's very silent. Put it in the D mode and cars pulls out without any noise! Only noise was from the AC. Car pulls very cleanly in the D mode and the pickup is very good in D mode. Things go crazy when you switch to S mode! It's ridiculously fast.

One needs to be careful when in this mode. I believe most won't need to bother S mode. Loved the drive, liked the road manners. Outright purchase is expensive I feel, would like to wait and see how the subscription plan is going to be.

Wait till they have excess inventory than initial demand. Car companies hope to skim the market first, before offering the products at some discount to others.

I guess 6 months should do it.

I read a news article stating that no road tax is applicable to EVs in Delhi but called the dealer and he said that road tax is indeed applicable.
Does anyone have any clarity if EVs in Delhi are subject to road tax or if they are registered for free?
