“Gearing up to outshine expectations. Arriving today,”
The excitement around this launch has been building for some time, especially considering the popularity of the Nexon EV since its initial release in 2020 in the Indian market. To heighten the anticipation, Tata Motors has unveiled a captivating teaser of the Nexon facelift on the social media platform X.
