Tata Motors is ready with the Nexon electric vehicle and it is all set to unveil the car on December 17, 2019. This will be the company's first electric SUV in the country. It is of course, not the first electric car from the Tata Motors stable because the Tigor has that distinction. While the unveil will happen in December, the company will launch the car only next year. The Nexon EV will not be the first electric car from the Tata Motors stable, but it will be the first car to be powered by the company's latest Ziptron electric powertrain technology, and an expected range of 250 to 300 km on a single charge. It will use a Lithium-Ion battery, which will be liquid-cooled and IP67 certified for water and dust resistance. Tata Motors has also announced that it will be offering 8-years warranty on the battery, and as for the electric motor, it is a permanent magnet AC motor with regenerative braking which charges the battery on the drive.
