Tata is set to unveil a new technology tomorrow while unofficial bookings for Nexon Long Range EV has also started
Tata Motors has flaunted a teaser on its social media handles that it’s set to unveil a new technology tomorrow while the brand’s select dealerships have also started unofficial bookings for its upcoming Nexon Long Range EV slated for 11th May launch.
Of late, the Tata territory has been quite buzzy with the brand currently on an EV onslaught. Starting from the unveil of the Curvv concept to rigorously testing the Nexon and Altroz EVs, Tata has, indeed, taken the EV game forward this time.
Now going by the details of the teaser that show a globe with connected dots, the new technology might be related to EVs with advanced connected features.
During the unveil of its Avinya concept a few days back, Tata stressed on the point that future connected technologies will be based only on audio and interaction rather than large displays and touchscreens that are the current trend with big EV makers like Tesla.
In fact, even the electric 2 wheelers in India are getting bigger and bigger screens with TVS being the only exception. It has brought Siri-like audio interface on its recently launched Ntorq 125 XT scooter rather than increasing the existing screen size.
Similarly, the Avinya concept had a large dash speaker but only a puny touchscreen fixed on to the steering wheel. Though the new technology unveil tomorrow could be on the said lines, we might also be wrong as not many details have been revealed by the brand.
This aside, sources said, select Tata dealerships have already commenced bookings for the upcoming Nexon Long Range EV ahead of its launch on 11th May. Though exact booking amount is not known, it should be in the vicinity of Rs. 20,000 to 30,000/-.
The long-range version reportedly features a big 40 kWh battery pack with a claimed range above 400 km (100 km up from the standard car) and real-work figures easily above 300 km.
