Speaking about the new gen electric car of Tata Motors Ziptron tech, it could be either the Altroz EV, which was showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, or the Nexon electric SUV, which has already spied on test.

Considering that the Nexon EV has already entered the test phase, it is more likely to become the first Tata electric car with Ziptron technology. Not much details are available as of now about the Tata Nexon electric, but it is expected to get larger battery than on offer with the Tigor EV. This will deliver more driving range, expected of about 300 kms on full charge. Price could be in the range of Rs 15 lakhs.
