Tata Passenger Electric Mobility, a specialized EV division of Tata  Motors has launched the Nexon EV MAX today in India, on May 11

The Tata Nexon EV MAX is a new high-range variant to be sold alongside  the existing model - the Nexon EV - which happens to be the best-selling electric car in India.

The electric vehicle from the homegrown automaker has an increased range of 437 km with a bigger battery pack.

The Tata Nexon EV MAX is priced over and above the top spec variant of the Tata Nexon EV.

Tata Nexon EV MAX long range starts at Rs 17.74 lakh (ex-showroom) for the base variant.

It will get the bigger battery pack, which  is expected to be rated at 40 kWh and is 30% larger than the current  model's 30.2 kWh pack.

This can give the Tata Nexon EV MAX a maximum range between 400-450 km,  as against Tata Nexon EV's claimed 312 km range on a single charge.
