SUVs have garnered significant prominence in the last few years. People buy SUVs due to their high ground clearance and high seating position. But still, this all results in slightly reduced driving dynamics when compared to sedans and hatchbacks. This is where a coupe design comes into play. Coupe designs are still catching up in India. Mahindra has been working on an coupe SUV concept. Tata Motors is also planning to launch a coupe version of the Nexon. Tata has big ambitions from this coupe Nexon to rack in 9000 to 10,000 sales per month. In today’s article, we will see a Tata SUV that will rack in 9,000 sales a month.

The Nexon coupe will be a stretched version of the Nexon. With the Nexon coupe, Tata wants to enter the C-SUV segment to compete with the Hyundai Creta. The coupe will share the same platform (X1) that is used by Nexon. Front three-quarters of the car will remain identical to the Nexon, while the rear is expected to get a tampering roof to get the coupe design. Tata is also expected to give it a sportier design with coupe characteristics. 

EV variant

Tata is expected to bring an EV version first to establish the coupe design. It is expected to get an electric motor like the Nexon EV with a bigger 40kWh battery pack. Tata will upgrade the electric motor to produce more power and torque than the current Nexon EV.

Tata will debut the new 1.5-litre petrol engine on the Nexon coupe. Tata will have to fine-tune the engine considering the upcoming BS6 stage 2 emission norms. It will also offer a 1.5-litre diesel with a different tune on the Nexon coupe.
