MG is a brand owned by Chinese SAIC motors.

Every day Chinese phones explode due to cheap battery. If EV batteries explode, you will be known as a terrorist who died in a car bomb.

Budget+Chinese Car=deadly combination.

No thanks, I shall stick to TATA EVs.

Where do you think nexon EV gets parts from?

I own both a Tata harrier and a Hector. 

MG’s service commitment is 10x better than TATA

I know we all lookup to home grown brands but they’re just not there yet.

Which parts? Those which could explode eg battery? You tell us 🙂

FYI — Tata manufactures battery fitted in Nexon EV.

Tata provides 8 years / 1.6 Lakh km* warranty on battery & motor. And battery cost is going down and fossil fuel cost is going up. Do the math before outright suggesting not to by EV.

Deal Newbie Deal Newbie

over the time battery degrade no range as they advertise in 2-3 yrs . Will get only 30 percentage of advertised ad. U end up paying more. And cucumber some charging. Not to buy atleast for 4 -5 yrs

Tata does not manufacture the battery. It is assembled at TATA autocomp systems Pune. The cells are outsourced/Imported. Don’t know who is the source

tata just assembles the battery pack. the battery cells come from china.

There is no large scale li-ion cell manufacturer yet in India
Nexon imports both motor and battery cells(tata assembles cells to make battery pack) and many other parts required for  EV-I think origin country is china because its the cheapest always
This is the reason tata EVs are so costly in india
For reference nexon XM
EV- 14.24 Lakh(13.56 Lakh after removing GST of 5% on EV)
XM petrol-8.4L(6.51 after removing GST), >7. Lakh Extra they are charging
MG ZS cost 21.49 Lakh(15.35L ater removing import duty)
for <2L extra in MG they are giving bigger car ,lot bigger battery and many other features
This shows how much mg is ahead and how much tata has to pay for battery and motor(both are not in house)
Once MG starts assembling in india and get in to 5% GST, RIP tata EV

I was not aware that they are importing batteries from China. I was under impression that they are manufacturing them locally with the help of Tata Power and Tata Chemicals !!

I’m sure they will manufacture their own batteries in near future.

You were correct! The battery pack is manufactured by Tata AutoComp while the battery cells are made by Tata Chemicals.

Tata Chemicals has a plant in Gujarat that can house the manufacturing of active materials, li-ion cells, and batteries.Moreover, Tata Chemicals is in talks to buy British battery manufacturer Johnson Matthey to increase it’s battery production.Tata Chemicals has also partnered with ISRO to use its cell technology.

And BTW most of the countries prefer to importing Li ion cells from Taiwan instead of China coz they understand what sort of crap China manufactures e.g Corona 😂

Yes,of course,every proud Indian will name Tata,Infosys,Aditya Birla,Wipro,Reliance,Amul,Hero,Mahindra,Ranbaxy,L&T,Serum Institute of India (SII),Bharti Airtel,HCL, Maruti Suzuki and be proud of these organizations.Why do you have a problem with that ?

Do you understand the difference between JLR China / Chery Jaguar Land Rover and Tata Nexon ? Don’t you ? Find out, before posting illogical links. JLR China and Chery Jaguar Land Rover are China based units and nowhere related to Nexon EV. BTW what’s wrong with being a patriot and being proud of achivements of an Indian company ? What are you proud of ? Corona ? 

If somebody is excelling in a particular field we should acknowledge and celebrate his/her achievements.Similarly if a fellow Indian or an Indian organization is doing great we must celebrate their accomplishments.What’s wrong with that ? Get over your inferiority complex ,white fetish and mental slavery!!

My uncle dumped his MG Hector for Kia Seltos and a neighbour sold his Hector after 8 months for Nexon EV.They were upset as Hector proved quite inferior and powerless in comparison to it’s rivals.I have come across many people disappointed with Hector’s dismal show.It’s certainly no match for Tata Nexon EV.

The X Factor / USP of Tata is it’s ecosystem.Tata Motors is working with other Tata group companies including Tata Power, Tata Chemicals,TCS,Tata Autocomp,Tata Elxsi,Tata Technologies,Tata Capital,Tata Motors Finance and Croma.AFAIK it’s going to create an e-mobility ecosystem called Tata uniEVerse.Tata owners are gonna get access to several e-mobility services including charging solutions,and financing options.

Like Tata AIG has launched comprehensive EV insurance policies for car buyers.Tata Electronics is developing hi-tech electronics components & semi-conductors.Tata Auto Comp has tied up with Tellus Power Green to supply AC and DC fast chargers.

Tata Power has partnered with Lodha Developers to install EV charging stations in all its residential and commercial projects and it will be accessible to all residents and visitors who are Tata EV owners.It owns the largest public charging network in India with charging stations in 50+ cities and an app to find nearby charging stations.I have heard that it is also in talk with petroleum companies to build charging stations at fuel pumps.It aims to build over 10K charging stations by 2030.MG certainly gonna lack such vast netowrk.

Tata Chemicals is gonna acquire British battery manufacturer Johnson Matthey to increase it’s battery production.It has also partnered with ISRO to use its cell technology.

The government has sanctioned Rs 18K crore for the PLI scheme which is aimed at manufacturing Advanced Chemistry Cell (ACC) batteries locally with objective to turn India into a global hub for the manufacture of electric vehicles and cut down the cost of EVs so that people can prefer electric vehicles over gasoline vehicles.Many manufacturers including Hyundai,Ola,Mahindra,Exide,Reliance and L&T have already applied for this scheme.It’s time to bid adieu to Chinese crap coming in the form of battery bombs! 😊

Tata aims to recycle 500 tonnes of used Li-ion batteries, to recover valuable metals such as lithium, cobalt, nickel etc.The stock of the company was up by over 90% in 2021.Nexon EV’s sale is around 71.4% of all passenger EV sales in EV market and Tata is aiming to launch 10 new EVs by 2025 including an upgraded Nexon EV by mid-2022.

Tata is taking EV segment very seriously and has a separate subsidiary Tata Motors EVco Limited to handle it’s EV business.So while Tata Ecosystem is providing a better value for money service,Tata Nexon EV is without a doubt more bang for the buck! Tata is gonna be the flag bearer of Indian EV revolution for sure!!!

That article still does not answer if Tata is sourcing Nexon EV’s battery from China 😀

Anyways, its not about the parts, its all about the reputation a brand builds overtime and proves it with ‘hard’ facts. 
For now Tata has proven that their cars are safe and that too as per NCAP standards.

I know for a fact that JLR’s major profit comes from China Market. But isn’t that a good thing. The profit ultimately comes back to India. Tata becomes one of the only Indian brand who can go and sell in the China Market and bring profit home.

If you buy petrol or disel vehicle around 150000 km you spend 7,50,000/- on fual and 75000/- on service cost for 1,50,000 km, and you say 40% cost for replacement of battery it is much cheaper then petrol diesel vehicles…

I’m not talking about if its good or bad. All I’m interested is knowing data to prove the so called ‘fact’ 😁

one questions which is major source of electricity? Think twice before buying electric vehicles

I think you are hinting towards coal powered electricity generation plants being the primary source of electricity generation currently and since they contribute to ~50% of the total electricity generated. And also contribute close to 45% of countries total Co2 emission.

In layman’s terms, 50% of the electricity used by EV’s comes from the number 1 contributor to CO2 emission however the other 50% comes from a clean source. And since EV’s do not have tailpipe emission, they will not contribute towards 27% CO2 emission by ICE vehicles. And you add in savings on foreign reserves by cutting down on import of Petrol/Diesel, id does make sense to switch over to EV’s.

The problem with our country is ‘We want to save money while we have nothing to eat’. In electricity context, we are steadily ‘electrifying’ villages as we are not there yet, using electricity generated by coal powered plants and still trying to get our emissions down.

We will get closer to the ‘ideal’ situation but then we need to support and keep alive something which contributes to the cause positively, may be not be to the extent we want it to be but there are bright possibilities that in future it will, taking about EV’s here.
