This electric car from MG is going to come with a crossover design. The company is specially designing this car keeping in mind the needs of the Indian customers. This information was given by Rajiv Chhaba, President, MG Motor India.
Competition with the popular Tata Nexon
One of the major reasons for the popularity of this electric car is its price. Actually, Nexon EV is the cheapest electric SUV in the country. Its starting price in the Indian market is Rs 13.99 lakh, which goes up to Rs 15.99 lakh. The absence of any other electric car in this range is a big advantage for the company, which is reflected in its sales as well.
Permanent Magnet AC motor has been given in Tata Nexon EV. It has a lithium-ion battery for power, which is liquid cooled and IP67 certified. That is, its battery is water and resistant. To put it in more simple language, its battery is not affected by both water and dust. The Nexon EV has a battery of 30.2 kWh. This electric car gives a range of 312 km on a single charge. That is, once fully charged, this car gives a journey of up to 312 km without stopping. Its new electric powertrain generates 245 Nm of peak torque. This electrician achieves a speed of 0-100 kmph in 9.9 seconds.
