What’s New?

 

 

The Tata Nexon and Nexon EV's Dark Edition models exhibit a sleek all-black exterior shade complemented by blacked-out 16-inch alloy wheels. Notably, these SUVs proudly display a ‘Dark’ badge on their side fenders, with the 'Nexon' badges also appearing in black. However, a distinctive touch on the Nexon EV Dark model is the blue 'EV' badge, setting it apart from its internal combustion engine (ICE) counterpart.

Both the Nexon and Nexon EV feature an entirely black interior and leatherette seat upholstery with the headrests adorned with 'Dark' branding for added style and sophistication.

 

Other Features

 

The Nexon and Nexon EV Dark editions maintain the same features as their standard counterparts, without any alterations. Notably, the Nexon EV Dark edition is exclusively available on the top-spec Empowered Plus LR variant.

 

Each SUV is outfitted with a host of premium features, including a 10.25-inch digital driver’s display, a high-quality 9-speaker JBL sound system, a single-pane sunroof, and wireless charging capabilities. Setting the Nexon EV apart, it flaunts a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, contrasting with the Nexon’s 10.25-inch display. Moreover, the electric SUV is equipped with innovative vehicle-to-load (V2L) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) functionalities.

 

Regarding safety, both the Nexon and Nexon EV are equipped with six airbags, a 360-degree camera featuring blind spot monitoring, electronic stability control, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
