Rumour: Tata Nexon Coupe to rival the Hyundai Creta

Nexon Coupe will be offered with a variety of powertrain options, including petrol, diesel and even electric.

It has already been reported that Tata Motors is planning to enter the mid-size SUV segment to compete with the likes of the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. As per a recent report, the carmaker is developing a stretched version of the Nexon with a coupe-like body style.

The Nexon, which is a sub-4 meter model, will be stretched to 4.3 meters. The Nexon Coupe will be offered with a variety of powertrain options, including conventional petrol and diesel engines. Moreover, an all-electric version is also said to be on the cards.

The longer Nexon Coupe is said to offer better rear-seat legroom and a larger boot. The wheelbase is expected to go up by 50 mm. While it will share the same X1 platform as the sub-4 meter model, it will boast a unique design.

Under the bonnet, the Nexon Coupe could use Tata’s upcoming 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine that is estimated to produce 158 BHP. Additionally, there will be the 1.5-litre diesel motor that makes 108 BHP and 260 Nm.

Nexon Coupe EV:

The all-electric version of the Nexon Coupe could use the same Ziptron powertrain as the current Nexon EV. However, Tata is working on an upgrade in the form of a larger battery pack (40 kW) and a more powerful electric motor. The former could get the same setup.
