The Tata Nexon EV is currently the best selling electric car in the market. It accounts 60 percent market share in its segment. This year Tata Motors will give the Nexon EV a much needed update.

2022 Tata Nexon EV
In 2022 model, the Nexon EV will get 40kWh battery pack. The current Nexon EV gets a 30.2kWh battery pack. The bigger battery pack variant will sell alongside the current model. With 30.2kWh battery pack, the Nexon EV offers a real-time range of 180-200Km. With bigger 40kWh battery pack a good range of 400km can be expected.
