Nexon EV Max efficiency surprised me in Bangalore's traffic conditions

The advertised mileage of the Tata Nexon EV Max stands at 437 Km.

BHPian varkey recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Went for a Sunday morning drive to my in-laws place through Bengaluru city and achieved 97 Wh/km! This is the first time I am seeing the average below 120 Wh/km let alone 100 Wh/km.

97 Wh/Km works out to a projected range of 417.5 km for the EV Max's 40.5 kWh battery, which has an advertised range of 437 km.

I was not consciously trying to drive conservatively, it was through the city and with the traffic and traffic signals every few 100 meters, it was practically not possible for me to drive any faster. I have done this same trip innumerable times with my ICE car, and the total trip time is more or less the same, if not slightly better.

Eco Mode

  • Level 2 Regen
  • AC @ 24 Auto
  • 50 min travel time
  • Avg speed ~ 30 km/h
  • Top speed ~ 60 km/h
  • Distance ~ 24 km

Would I drive at this pace or style on an open road? Definitely not, but in the city with traffic, it kinda makes sense and practical.

This was the state sometime before I started the trip.
