2022 Tata Nexon EV Max review

Read on to know about the review of 2022 Tata Nexon EV Max

The Tata Nexon EV Max has a larger 40.5 kWh battery pack, good for an ARAI range of 437 km. This is up from the 30.2 kWh of the standard Nexon EV and its 312 km certified range. The pack itself carries on to be a lithium-iron-phosphate one but Tata Motors says it has done work to improve its energy density. This has led to a 40 per cent rise in range from a 33 per cent increase in size.

The Tata Nexon EV Max has a more powerful 143PS and 250 Nm electric motor, and the effects of this are immediately visible on the move. Even in the new, most conservative Eco drive mode, the electric SUV makes for steady progress in start-stop traffic. There’s a little bit of the electric torque already available off the line and there’s none of the slightly laboured progress you would find in the low-power mode in the standard Nexon EV.

There’s no difference in outputs in the Eco or City modes. You receive about 98PS and 170 Nm in both, the only difference being a slightly sharper accelerator response in the City mode. In the real world, this appears to free up the Nexon EV Max in its motions a touch more but this is a minimal change that doesn’t significantly alter the driving experience.

A great addition is the four selectable regen modes. These make for more predictable driving than the earlier dynamic regen modes, helped by their thoughtful tuning and the conveniently accessed physical buttons.
