Tata Nexon EV v/s Nexon Petrol MT
Should you buy a Tata Nexon EV vs Nexon Petrol MT? With gas costs rising by the day, an electric car appears to be a viable option. But, given the current state of the charging network, is it a viable option? This question usually strikes your mind when it comes to purchasing a car. It's not easy to figure out which automobile is ideal for you. But there's no need to be concerned; see the table below for a detailed comparison of the two models based on their Price, Acceleration, Efficiency, Entertainment Features, Securities, and other specifications.
The Nexon EV and the petrol-powered SUV have almost comparable power statistics on paper. The EV, on the other hand, has 75Nm more torque than the gasoline version. Furthermore, the Nexon EV delivers power quickly, whilst the petrol SUV requires you to wait for the revs to increase. What effect does this have on the acceleration test? Continue reading to find out.
Despite its quick power delivery, the EV is 3.47 seconds slower than the petrol-powered SUV under comparable test circumstances. That is, however, in Drive mode, and power is limited. When the gear selector is laying to Sport, the EV unleashes its 129 horsepower and outruns its ICE rival by 3.75 seconds. The Nexon petrol is slower even during roll-on accelerations. It completed the 20-80kph and 40-100kph runs in 10.49 and 18.26 seconds, respectively. In comparison, the EV completed the 20-to-80kmph run in 9.09 seconds in Drive and 5.25 seconds in Sport.
The Nexon EV covered 9.35km per kWh, whereas the regular model returned 13.41km per litre. So, if we do the arithmetic, the Nexon EV can travel 282 kilometres on a single charge, whereas a tank would get you approximately 590 kilometres in the city. So, if your weekly commute is less than 300km, a Nexon EV makes sense because you can charge it weekly using your home charger. On the highway, the EVs' lower efficiency reduces their range to 211km. Road excursions must also schedule due to the limited charging network. The regular Nexon, on the other hand, has higher efficiency and can go around 890 kilometres. As a result, the gasoline Nexon, with its better efficiency, should make sense for long trips.
Overall, the Nexon EV is faster, especially in Sport mode. But does this come at the expense of range?
Tata Nexon EV - Rs 13.99 lakh to Rs 16.85 lakh
Tata Nexon Petrol - Rs 7.20 lakh to Rs 11.90 lakh
With rising gas prices, it makes sense to spend the additional money on the Nexon EV. However, this is generally true if you use it in the city. Because of the current thin charging network, the basic Nexon is a superior model for highway use. Also, while purchasing an EV for highway use, one should always consider range anxiety.
Locks & Security?
Tata Nexon EV facilitates the Speed Sensing Door Lock while providing security. On the other hand, this function is not available in Tata Nexon Petrol.
Entertainment, Information & Communication?
The best features EV provide the entertainment facilities. EVs facilitates the Integrated (in-dash) Music System, Speakers, USB Compatibility, Bluetooth Compatibility, MP3 Playback, AM/FM Radio, iPod Compatibility and Voice Command. I5 is the overall badge of EV over Tata Nexon Petrol.
So, starting here, you may get an idea of the affordability rate of both models and then examine their characteristics to get a visual sense of their relative position. You may easily make a purchase now that you know which one is ideal for you.
