Just weeks after announcing its latest electric vehicle technology, Tata Motors has revealed that the first electric car to roll with the Ziptron power train will be the Tata Nexon EV. It will source power from advanced lithium-ion cells which will give a drive range of about 300 kms on a single charge. The battery pack will also be liquid cooled and will be packed in a solid IP67 case which provides high strength outer shell to protect critical electric vehicle components.
Shailesh Chandra, President Electric Mobility business & Corporate Strategy, Tata Motors says, "We are proud to announce that Nexon EV will be available for personal buyers in india from Q4 (Jan-Mar) FY19-20. Powered by the cutting-edge Ziptron technology, Nexon EV promises to address the barriers that exist in the EV market today.
The Battery Management System (BMS) in the Ziptron power train is designed for extended battery life of up to eight years and will offer consistent performance. It is a permanent magnet AC motor with regenerative braking which charges the battery on the drive.
