Driving the Nexon EV is a delightful experience, offering speed and fun typical of electric cars. While the car maintains a comfortable ride, the additional weight from the batteries slightly alters the handling without significantly affecting the overall driving experience.

The Nexon EV comes with two driving modes: ‘D’ for city-oriented driving with reduced torque, and ‘S’ for accessing the full 245Nm of torque, ideal for open roads. Despite its small battery pack, the Nexon EV offers impressive performance during a mix of city and highway driving conditions.

2. **MG Comet EV**: MG Motor has implemented a price reduction across its entire India lineup. The MG Comet EV, in particular, sees a significant reduction of Rs 99,000.

The three available variants – Pace, Play, and Push – have witnessed a noteworthy price drop, with the latter two trims now being Rs 1.40 lakh more affordable. Consequently, the revised prices for these variants are Rs 7.88 lakh and Rs 8.58 lakh (ex-showroom), respectively.
