Tata Nexon is currently the most popular electric SUV in the Indian market. The Indian carmaker recently launched the updated facelifts of both the Nexon and Nexon EV. When compared to the previous version, the new one looks futuristic and also offers a lot more in terms of features. While many people have adopted Nexon EVs, there have been various instances where customers have actually complained about issues with the car. The Nexon EV has been in the market since 2020, and even today, people face issues with it. Recently, we received a report from Hyderabad where a Nexon owner got a High Voltage alert on his instrument cluster while driving the car.
The videos and images of the Tata Nexon EV Max have been posted by the customer in a Facebook group. The owner, Sridhar Ghanta, has actually shared a couple of videos and images where the Nexon EV’s instrument cluster is visible, and we can also see the same car on a flatbed. The owner, in his post, writes, “In the morning, I posted about Nexon EV’s water wading capacity, and by evening, I’m not happy to post this negative service delay experience. With hardly 5 months of EV Nexon ownership, my EV started flashing Hv system fault and came to a complete halt with only 16% charge left. It may be a software glitch, but I’m not happy with the delayed towing service. The entire day, I had to deal with this issue only. I hope Tata won’t disappoint in addressing this service issue.”
The owner actually took the car through a waterlogged section, and the issue on the instrument cluster came up after that. He is actually not worried about the issue or the warning on the instrument cluster; he is upset about the fact that the Tata dealership or service center was not quick enough to respond. The warning sign on the instrument cluster only appeared after he drove the car through the water.
Tata Nexon EV Prime and Nexon EV Max both come with water and dust-resistant battery packs. The batteries are neatly tucked under the floor of the car. There are a lot of wires under the body, and some of them carry high voltage current from the batteries to the electric motor. It is quite possible that the water might have caused some issues in this system, and that’s why the warning popped up. We really hope that the customer got his issue resolved. The comment section of this particular post is filled with mixed reactions about the car and the service center.
The 2023 Tata Nexon EV was launched in the market recently at a starting price of Rs 14.74 lakh, ex-showroom. Tata has dropped the Prime and Max badging, and they now call it Medium Range (MR) and Long Range (LR). The variants have also been rejigged. Nexon EV offers 6 variants to choose from, namely Creative+, Fearless, Fearless+, Fearless+S, Empowered, and Empowered+. The Long Range version of Nexon EV comes with a 40.5 kWh battery pack, while the medium-range version gets a 30 kWh battery pack. The electric motor has been updated and is lighter than the previous version. The LR variant claims a range of 465 km, and the MR variant offers a driving range of 325 km.
