The Tata Nexon EV has received a software update which has brought multiple improvements, ElectricVehicleWeb.in understands.
The new Tata Nexon EV software update changes the software to version 2.07, and this can be done by taking the car to the service center. The first of the enhancements the v2.07 software brings in an optimized creep mode. The creep function takes lower time to activate, making the transition from stop to creep smoother.
The regeneration function in the Tata Nexon EV felt harsh to some drivers below 20% SoC previously. Following the software update to version 2.07, that’s no longer the case. Another improvement is the reduced effort for braking. It seems that the first few centimetres of travel in the brake pedal are now dedicated to regeneration.
The energy consumption rating, displayed in Wh/km unit, is more accurate in the Tata Nexon EV with the v2.07 software. The energy consumption rating still includes the reserve battery charging in the calculation. Coasting in the Tata Nexon EV is now easier. There is at least 1-2 cm of travel in the accelerator pedal where the vehicle performs coasting now. This means more relaxed driving on highways.
It is expected that the software update could offer a small gain in range too, but this is yet to be verified.
