End of the day, it doesn't make any difference which EV I have. Please show me an official policy it you want to credibly dispute this point.
That way, people may manage to get MG serviced at Tata and vice versa !

Even if it is asking favour, it works better in the same ecosystem.

For people like me, who do not have much contacts at Tata Motors or at Tata Power, going to Tata Service station with Nexon EV is much more convenient than going to Tata service station with MG.

And on policy, I am not a book keeper and I do not have any. However, MoU as per Autocar is only for 'Fast' chargers.

Let me know if you have any policy document that says non-commercial 16A / Slow charging infrastructure at Tata / MG / Hyundai / Mahindra is to be shared across EV landscape.

Net Net, the advantages of Nexon EV over MG ZS EV are
- Build Quality
- Superb ride and handling
- Access to TATA ecosystem for charging.

But it does lose to ZS in
- Features set
- Space
What is the basis of claiming that NEV has a better build quality than ZS EV? I have never heard any ZS facing issues with its motor falling off or D2N. In terms of NCAP, both have a 5 star rating. So, I am finding it difficult to understand what makes NEV have better build quality (though I must applaud TML for improving the build quality of its cars by leaps and bounds).

Correction, it is 2.7Kw vs 7KW AC and 21KW vs 50KW. on DC.

Why 50KW on the MG? MG ZS can charge at a maximum 75KW. I have charged at 60KW often myself.

this details that ZS is 50KW.

In addition to personal experience, several publications including MG itself rate it at 75KW. See an example that includes an actual test below:

Camouflaged Nexon EV spotted testing with different alloy wheel design in Pune, Longer range model?

Indeed looks like an electric model. Blue tri arrow pattern appears briefly at 0:25.

This alloy design looks much better than the old one to me at least. Exciting times ahead.

Makes me wonder, is Tata going to give different trims for bigger battery pack or is it going to be like configuring laptops online where you select RAM and storage independent of each other (ie having choice of 40kWh in XM variant) or will Tata restrict 40kWh to higher trims.

I think the need of hour is to allow diversity, if someone wants an XM with more range, it should be available to user at their choice.

The alloys seem to be inspired from the MG ZS ev

Also, as Shresth has mentioned, it should be like configuring a PC or a laptop, being able to choose if one wants the smaller or larger battery pack irrespective of the variant.

If 40 KWh is the size of battery pack on this "long range" Nexon, it's kind of a joke. It should be the standard range , with 30 KWh version being Short range
IMO, a truly "long range" version of the Nexon should get no less than (useable) battery pack of 60KWh. Sure, it will drive up the costs, but then its "long range".

Things improve incrementally. 30KW would become 40 and then 50 and so on with a little cost increase of a few lakhs each time.

Hello bhpians.

Just confirmed from my sources that the longer range Nexon EV is likely not launching this year. Also the new and bigger battery is said to be quite heavy and expensive as compared to the current one so it's going to be a nightmare at the time of replacing the battery and also the overall dynamics of the car are likely to take a hit due to the added weight.

But knowing how Tata tunes it's suspension systems these days, I would say that they will still find the perfect balance between ride and handling for the new and improved Nexon EV.

Thanks much sir !

However- any chance that they will launch an upgrade of current car with improved/missed features added ? Most importantly with Cruise and Stability controls?

Thanks in advance.

That's a bummer, I was looking forward to the long range Nexon EV. It would have suited 90% of my requirements.

I will be starting work commute post the current covid wave, this means a daily commute of around 35Kms and followed by my weekend drives of around 300Kms. Nexon EV with a larger battery pack would have been perfect.
