Business5 min read
Tata Motors launched its second electric vehicle today, the Tata Nexon EV. The EV avatar of the popular Tata Nexon is bound to be a head-turner, especially with diamond-cut alloy wheels, dual-tone roof and sporty looks.

If you are in the market for a new car, or if you are looking at upgrading to an electric car, you might have one question in mind – how does the Tata Nexon EV compares with the MG ZS EV?

We are here to answer that question for you.

The Tata Nexon EV is decidedly cheaper, but cheaper is not always better. Or is it? Let’s find out.

Tata Nexon EV vs MG ZS EV: Design

Design is an important factor when you’re trying to decide between two cars. For some, it even comes down to the colour and the shade, so how do the two cars measure up in this regard?

The Tata Nexon EV sports the company’s new Impact 2.0 design language. It has a grille on the front with a chunky black bar in the middle. Tata has given it a slightly angular design and new 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels.

The Tata Nexon EV comes in three colours – Signature Teal Blue, Glacier White and Moonlit Silver. The sunroof comes in contrasting tones, which adds to the looks of the car.

On the other hand, the MG ZS EV adopts a much bolder, premium design from the onset. There are fewer distractions on the front when compared to the Nexon EV – it has the grille, the lamps and the air vents, all cleanly separated from each other.

The MG ZS EV comes in three colours – Copenhagen Blue, Currant Red and Ferris White.
