Used Tata Nexon EV units have started going on sale in some cities. Here are examples of barely-driven Tata Nexon EVs which owners have listed on classifieds website OLX.
Tata Motors launched the Tata Nexon EV in India in January and began delivering the electric car to customers in March. Due to the COVID-19 related lockdowns and travel restrictions, usage of cars has become mostly limited to only necessary city commutes during the last few months. Secondly the economic impact of the pandemic would leave many with pay cuts or job losses, and most are reevaluating recurring spends. These reasons could have something to do with the units on sale on OLX with really low odometer readings, though there could be others such as the owner deciding to pursue a a career opportunity overseas.
A used Tata Nexon EV that is on sale in Mumbai and advertised (pictured above) on olx.com has done only 1,000 km. Manufactured in the top-end XZ+ Lux trim, it packs an electric sunroof and all other best features one can get in the flagship Tata electric car. The asking price of the pre-owned unit is INR 16,95,000, and that’s a non-negotiable offer. The ex-showroom Mumbai price of a new unit in the XZ+ Lux grade is INR 15,99,000.
Another example on olx.com is a used Tata Nexon EV in Pune (pictured above). It’s a mid-range XZ+ grade configuration with 2,500 km on the odometer and an INR 15,00,000 asking price. There’s no mention of negotiability for this particular used Tata electric car listing. The ex-showroom price of a new Tata Nexon EV XZ+ in Pune is INR 14,99,000.
There’s one more olx.com listing which we can include, that shows a used Tata Nexon EV in Bengaluru (pictured below). This unit is in the range-topping XZ+ trim, has clocked 2,500 km and costs INR 16,80,000. The quoted price is not final, meaning that the owner is open to negotiating. The ex-showroom Bengaluru price of a new unit in the XZ+ trim is INR 14,99,000.
The Tata Nexon EV is currently the best-selling electric car in India, with a cumulative sales over 1,000 units. In addition to the XZ+ and XZ+ Lux grades, it is available in a basic XM grade as well, at INR 13,99,000 (ex-showroom Mumbai). Tata Nexon EV owners have also reported an increase in range and improved driveability following a recent software update.
