If it’s complex I might as well switch over to the 3.3 kw slow charger.
Kindly enlighten
Check sanctioned load from the power supplier, it should be printed on your electricity bill.
Make sure the cables coming to your house can withstand the 32Amps for the charger plus the load of your entire house. Balance all the loads as evenly among the 3 phases.

From the charger to your meter/DB, you will need 10sq.mm wire.

Your dealer is correct. Only one smart key is being provided as of now (due to semiconductor crisis) but my dealer has promised that the second key will be delivered in a few months - let's see. Try and get a similar commitment from your dealer.

While Tata Power guys will take care of charger box installation and wiring technicalities, you need to ensure that the sanctioned load for your house/apartment is enough to sustain charger load plus that of other equipment you might operate while your car is charging. For instance, if you leave the car for overnight charge and your home air-conditioning is on as well, you should not end up blowing fuses

In case you are not already aware, power consumption of "1 ton" (typical a/c load terminology) is equivalent to approximately 1 kW.

Many thanks for the clarification.
Mine is a private house with all rooms air conditioned. The present load is already nearing the sanctioned load of 25 kW.

I have now applied for the extra load up to 40 kW with the electricity board.
If that comes through I'm planning to go ahead with the 7.2 kw charger, if not I will probably settle for the 3.3 kW one or the simple 15 A plug in my parking.
Fingers crossed.

So yesterday I saw a brand new Nexon EV XZ+ Teal blue near my apartment. I approached the owner and asked him about booking and all. To my surprise he told me that he booked his car in April with some other dealer in Mumbai. He told me he got his delivery prioritized through someone in his company. As I have heard so many stories of out of turn delivery of Nexon, it was not surprising but I still felt bad.
So my advice to other would be that its useless to follow up with the dealer for your booking. That was the biggest mistake I did. Most probably they are the ones benefitting most out of this crunch situation. Its better to contact company directly. Don’t wait for too long and don’t rust dealers when they commit a delivery period of of 4 months or six months. Start calling customer care after four weeks. Be patient, ultimately they will register the complaint. I thing ideally car should get delivered within 6-12 weeks.
This is my interpretation of the current situation. Please correct me if I am overthinking or the situation is same everywhere. On this forum I know of @ Vindi13 and @Bruichladdich who booked through same dealer. Probably they can also share their experience.
Hi,
Finally got my booking of Xz+ dark edition delivered yesterday for the booking I made in November. More a sigh of relief than a gush of joy, given the long wait time.
To a large extent, these timelines are driven by Tata motors and less by dealers. I would be lying if I said I did not think of jumping the queue via TaMo - but then decided against using professions connects for this favor.
All in all, the dealership was OK. The manager made an extra effort to get our car delivered yesterday. But the entire team I interacted with - salesman, Team Lead, demo person is moving out/ has moved out in this span (life is short). What I was not OK with was the lack of communication during the waiting period.
Anyhow, and good luck with your cars!

Got my Nexon EV XZ+ Lux delivered yesterday night. Headed over to select motors, Hyderabad, to get a demo of Nexon EV Max and disliked how much the seating comfort has been compromised to accommodate the larger battery.

When discussing with the sales executive, he said he can allot Nexon EV immediately if I am willing to take. Plunged in and paid the advance the very next day.

8 days later, I have the Nexon EV at home. I know it's way too many compromises in terms of features when compared to the EV Max but seating comfort is something that's quite elementary and cannot be compromised, hence EV over EV Max for me.

Any which ways, I guess the demand for Nexon EV plummeted (might be wrong though) after the launch of EV Max. Got to know even from Malik cars that they have ready stock of Nexon EV in case I am willing to go for it. Just a heads up to anyone looking for Nexon EV, not the EV Max.

Hey guys, I received my Tata Nexon EV XZ+ Lux 2 days ago.

When I try to use the z-connect app, it fails to sync with my car or perform any function. Am I missing any step? Also, the current location shows somewhere in Mumbai whereas the car is in Hyderabad.

Last updated date is being shown as 30th April.

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Check if your KYC documents are submitted ? Also, did you get any SMS about eSIM activation ?

Thanks for pointing out. Just had a chat with my sales executive, he has no clue about it and said he will arrange a call back with his senior.

Your dealer needs to upload your KYC documents, post which it will be activated for you within 2-3 working days.

Any idea if i can put a car cover on the Nexon EV while it charges overnight? Will this affect the battery's cooling capabilities? I hear a steady thrum which i assume is the cooling and don't want to interfere with that.

The Tata Nexon EV is a fun car to drive. It felt so much better in acceleration than my Nexon Diesel AMT.

Hello all,

I've booked the Nexon Max variant a week before it was launched and finally was able to test drive it last week.

While the drive quality was great, the seating was uncomfortable!
I'm 6ft tall and the part that connects the steering to the dashboard (attached pic) was rubbing against my knee. I couldn't turn my leg freely at all.

The only seating position that worked was to push the seat all the way back and wasn't the ideal position for me. I had to maintain a restricted posture when driving this car and was pretty uncomfortable with that protrusion rubbing against my knee.

I checked the same in the Nexon non-max version and had the same problem.

Wanted to ask if anyone (especially 6ft and above) had faced this issue?

I am 5 11. While I found the seating, both driver and rear seats, of EV Max to be quite uncomfortable, I could easily find comfort in EV seating.

Opted for EV got the delivery as well last Monday.

Yes, I concur that the non-max seating to be better than the new variant. Especially, the rear seating on the Max is very bad!

The seating is a deal-breaker!

The 1.5 lakhs subsidy was never available for EV Max. Only for cars who's billing value from the company is below 15 lakhs. Even in normal Nexopn EV, it was only available till XZ+ model.

The capacity has been filled in Maharashtra.
