ZAZ Cruise, it is still under development, and not ready for public testing I believe, the developer of the system is a member of the Pan India Nexon EV group and posts update on it.

How many of us statistically are affected by lack of electric supply , charging stations.
Which user would like to wait for 30 to 40 mins fast charging when on highway. People get pissed off, when toll booths sometimes malfunction to waste even 5-10 times of travelling time.
Petroleum industry is well estsblished, learnt all wrong-doing hardway to have stable process to extract fuel.
There is no way one can use electric car, unless battery density , charging time and recycling topics are taken care to march combustion engines times.
Just because I am doing it differently(electric mobility), does not mean it is sense full approach..
Let industry demonstrate to produce capble products(electric mobility), then automatically we will have customers buying it.
Hey, man!

You seem awful experienced with petrol cars and I'm thinking of replacing my Nexon EV with a petrol car; would like some insights from you.
  1. I have heard that petrol cars can not refuel at home while you sleep? How often do you have to refill elsewhere? Is this several times a year? Will there be a solution for refueling at home?
  2. Which parts will I need service on and how often? The car salesman mentioned a box with gears in it. What is this and will I receive a warning with an indicator when I need to change gear?
  3. Can I accelerate and brake with one pedal as I do today with my electric car?
  4. Do I get fuel back when I slow down or drive downhill? I assume so, but need to ask to be sure.
  5. The car I test drove seemed to have a delay from the time I pressed the accelerator pedal until it began to accelerate. Is that normal in petrol cars?
  6. We currently pay about 0.5 Rupees per Km to drive our electric car. I have heard that petrol can cost more than 10 times as much so I reckon we will lose some money in the beginning. We drive about 20,000 Km a year. Let's hope more people will start using petrol so prices go down.
  7. Is it true that petrol is flammable? Should I empty the tank and store the petrol somewhere else while the car is in the garage?
  8. Is there an automatic system to prevent gasoline from catching fire or exploding in an accident. What does this cost?
  9. I understand that the main ingredient in petrol is oil. Is it true that the extraction and refining of oil causes environmental problems as well as conflicts and major wars that over the last 100 years have cost millions of lives? Is there a solution to these problems?
  10. I have heard that cars with internal combustion based engines are being banned to enter more and more cities around the world, as it is claimed that they tend to harm the environment and health of their citizens?? Is that true??
I may have more questions later, but these are the most important ones to me at the moment. Thank you in advance for your reply.

Tata has got a great headstart in the EV space. Hope they continue this momentum with more development and innovation. Most other companies are atleast a couple years behind Tata in EVs.

What a month for Tata. Just the EV sales has crossed 2K+ in a month, that's really great to see. Hope we see more EV models from Tata motors soon.
There are manufacturers who don't even so many ICE ones.

Has anyone opted for their own insurance for Nexon EV? Quote from Dealer for XZ+ dark is around 98k.

Has anyone negotiated to reduce this or paid a substantial lower premium amount?

I took from Tata AIG on my own. Dealership too offered Liberty at similar premium.

Some one in Tata Motors have heard of osborne effect? Beats the hell out of me when these media people carry these types of articles and Tata motors keep quiet. Or is it that, still Tata motors have same old MBA people, who are immune to everything.

GUYS, i had 2 very Essential Queries:
1. What do you guys do at a signal? Shift to N or raise the HandBrake? I have noticed that the creep function gets cancelled when the handbrake is raised, and only comes on once the Accelerator/Brake pedal is pressed.
It's like an Auto-Hold feature

2. Do you guys find the Slow Charger supplied by Tata to be hot to touch, even hours after the battery has been charged, and the cable has not been removed after that???

1. I use brakes while on D. N + Handbrake for longer stops. Also observed that the car doesn't move on D+ Handbrake.

2. No. Did not observe this phenomena. I leave the car for charging overnight and remove the charger in the morning. Charger unit did not feel hot.

For #2 it seems to get hot when we leave it plugged in after charging is complete, and that's what my SA told me.

Checked few scenarios while charging :
1. Leave charger unit plugged in and switched on for few hours without connecting charger gun to the car : Neither cable nor charger became hot / warm.

2. Leave charger gun in the car for few hours (~ 5 hours) after charging to 100% : Charger unit became lukewarm and the cables did not become hot / warm

3. Charge the car to 100% from 66% (~3.5 Hours) : Charger unit became lukewarm and the cables did not become hot / warm

On D+Handbrake :
1. Car does not move ahead if handbrake is applied while in D. Also, car does not crawl / creep ahead if handbrake is released while on D. It will move only after pressing accelerator.

2. Similar phenomena is observed if driver side door is opened while car is on D and standstill (by depressing the brakes). May be to eliminate the chance of car moving ahead if driver forgets that the car is in D and steps out.

Yes. I took one out with Edelweiss. Their insurance costed less and had more bonuses.
