The owner of a 5-month-old Tata Nexon EV is upset after the car got a high voltage alert on the instrument cluster
Tata Nexon is currently the most popular electric SUV in the Indian market. The Indian automaker recently launched the updated facelifts of the Nexon and Nexon EV. When compared to the previous version, the new version looks futuristic and also offers a lot 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 vehicle. The Nexon EV has been in the market since 2020, and even today, people are facing issues with it. We recently received a report from Hyderabad where a Nexon owner received a high voltage alert on his instrument cluster while driving the vehicle.
The customer posted videos and photos of the Tata Nexon EV Max in a Facebook group. The owner, Sridhar Ghanta, has shared a couple of videos and photos where the Nexon EV kit is visible, and we can also see the same car on a flatbed. “In the morning, I posted about the Nexon EV’s ability to wade through water, and by the evening, I’m not happy posting this negative service delay experience,” the owner wrote in his post. “With nearly 5 months of ownership of the Nexon EV, my EV started flashing an error In high voltage system and it stopped completely and only 16% charge left. Maybe it’s a software glitch, but I’m not happy with the delay in towing service. All day long, I had to deal with just this issue. I hope Tata doesn’t disappoint in handling this service issue “
In fact, the owner took the car through a waterlogged section, and the instrument cluster issue developed afterward. He’s actually not worried about the problem or the warning on the instrument cluster; He is upset by the fact that the Tata agent or service center was not quick enough to respond. The warning sign on the instrument cluster did not appear until he drove the car through the water.
Both the Tata Nexon EV Prime and Nexon EV Max come with water- and dust-resistant batteries. The batteries are neatly placed under the car’s floor. Under the body there are a lot of wires, some of which carry high-voltage current from the batteries to the electric motor. It is very likely that water has caused some problems with this system, which is why the warning appeared. We really hope that the customer’s problem will be resolved. The comments section of this 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 badges, and are now calling them the Mid-Range (MR) and Long-Range (LR). Variants have also been redesigned. Nexon EV offers 6 different variants to choose from, namely Creative+, Fearless, Fearless+, Fearless+S, Empowered, and Empowered+. The long-range version of the Nexon EV comes with a 40.5 kWh battery pack, while the mid-range version gets a 30 kWh battery pack. The electric motor has been updated and is lighter than the previous version. The LR model has a driving range of 465 km, while the MR model offers a driving range of up to 325 km.
