If you are a potential EV buyer, you have probably waited a long time for this car after speculation, spy pictures, and rumors. Finally, here it is. The battery may look like a standard EV but it has a lot of new advanced and updated technology underneath.
Exterior -Tata Nexon EV Max
One look will not suffice to distinguish it from the standard Nexon as there is absolutely no badge that it is maximum if you are an x1 expert you will notice a change of paint shade which is called front intensity it still gets halogen headlamps with led models Wheelbase length and width remain the same but the ground clearance is now 190mm which is 15mm less than the standard car.
You will notice a slightly different design for 16-inch alloy wheels and if you look closely you will notice the rear disc brakes of the Ev max. There is no change in the back and it is internal which is now seeing relatively more noticeable updates. The exterior of the Nexon Evmax changes dramatically, and most of them are centered here on the center console. The first big one that jumps at you is the drive selector that is now digitally clit as well as easy to read during the day if you look closely.
There’s the Nexon Eve theme and it’s set up where it looks like a nice nerl finish so it really adds an overall premium factor then you have an electronic parking brake now there’s an auto-hold function your resin switch here very conveniently your resin The layers are adjusted to accommodate the Echo Mode and Sport Mode switches so there’s a lot of pressing. You also have a wireless charger automatic rearview mirror in your left hand and in Lux trims you’ll find front ventilated seats that work great.

Modified floor board and rear seat space -Review
Features also sadly most mean no rear-seat space gain but small split in the rear seat now dimensions have not changed so wheelbase and length are still the same you don’t have much of the same still get the same amount of room as before
but what has changed is that the floorboard is now 10mm More and that means you have to kneel a little higher on the floor because of the big battery so tall adults have to push them back a little more on the knees here now headroom is no problem for me legroom is no problem you will get a nice center armrest behind which There are two cup holder AC vents. There is no USB port. Sadly, I missed it a bit, but overall, it’s not too bad.
Boot capacity -Tata Nexon EV Max Review
A big very positive factor is that the boot space is not compromised. You see again with the size of the battery you would expect some of it to go back to the boot space but it is still 350 liters so it is a nice touch.
Battery and Performance -Tata Nexon EV Max Review
However, while these updates are significant, the larger one is the battery pack, which is now 40.5-kilowatt-hours higher than the standard 10-kilowatt-hour standard car,
and this means an increase in power, as well as the subsequent creation of an EV Max with 250 Nm of 143 horsepower and It, can go from zero to 100 in 9.3 seconds but all 143 horsepower is only available in Sport mode and if you are in City mode or Echo mode the power is limited to 97 horsepower and 170 Nm it still seems significantly more responsive than the standard car.

Tata Nexon EV Max -Real world range
Tata Nexon EV MAX 40.5kWh Range (km)
Now of course the number claimed by the data will not be as high as the real-world numbers but you can still get a lot of juice out of this battery in practice in our real-world range tests that involve a mix of Nexon running cities and highways. EV maximum average is 263 kilometers per kilowatt-hour 6.5 kilometers which is an increase of 55 kilometers compared to the standard version.
Regenerative Braking -Tata Nexon EV Max Review
What plays an important role in most other area levels is that you now have four modes Zero One Two and Three Three which is used for the most powerful and zero costing and all it does is change the resistance and drain the battery much more clearly.
The region also changes the overall range of vehicles so if you are in sport mode with the lowest region you have the lowest range and if you are in the eco with the highest region then your offer has the maximum range.
Kerb weight-Tata Nexon EV Max
Now what’s worth mentioning in the Nexon Evmax is that it comes from 70 battery tracks weighing in at 100kg and 30 extra equipment.
Suspension and ride-Tata Nexon EV Max Review
Now with that gain of 100kg, the suspension has to go through a bit of refinement as a result it is now a bit tighter than before your body moves fairly, especially on broken patches you must feel the thuds coming. Cabin on a flat road while cruising durability and consequently better handling.
Steering and handling-Tata Nexon EV Max Review
What helps is that the steering is heavy now and it weighs a good amount and it is a bit cumbersome in the city because you know how to drive in tight spaces and Translate well.
Braking-Tata Nexon EV Max Review
The upgrade for the Nexon Ev max is the brakes that you now have rear disc brakes, the only Nexon that gets the rear disc and they feel the brakes and the paddling effort is so normal that it doesn’t feel like an EV or hybrid
which You know the reason it doesn’t feel like wood is that the updated braking Tata has removed the vacuum booster and replaced it with a pressure pump that provides better mixing friction and area and it’s something that is really impressive because when you are about to stop or If you encounter an emergency you want to brake hard It is very normal that you will not get a knee-jerk reaction It does not feel awkward or dull in any way and it certainly does not feel wooden It is much more sure foot and it is something that The Nexon EV Max is very impressive.
Recharging times –Tata Nexon EV Max Review
|Tata Nexon EV Max|
|3.3KW AC – 15hrs (10-100%)|
|7.2KW AC – 6.5 hours (0-100%]|
|50KW DC – 56 mins (0-80%]|
Tata has also introduced a 7.2-kilowatt fast charge option which costs over Rs 50,000 and it plays a huge role in recharging. Zero two hundred percent full charge takes six-point five hours on a seven-point two kilowatt AC wall. An EV next to a box charger with a 15-amp plug will take a maximum of 10 to 100 to 15 hours and 56 minutes to charge from 50 to zero to eighty percent dc at 50 kW but if you haven’t bought the 7.2-kW charger you can always do it Choose one later and get access to fast charging which says that if you buy a standard Nexon Eve it will not support a larger charger.
Price and verdict –Tata Nexon EV Max Review
The next one EV max is priced from 17.74 lakh rupees to 19.24 lakh rupees which is a good 2 lakh rupees more than the standard EV.
However, for that relatively marginal extra, you get a larger battery more range usable features and fast charging options the next EV was already a strong value proposition in the ev game and the max has definitely taken it further ahead.
