Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024: The automaker has unveiled the twin-cylinder technology and exterior design of the Nexon iCNG model ahead of its formal launch. The concept version of the Nexon CNG will be on display at the event. The Nexon CNG's most significant update is that it will have a turbocharged CNG powertrain, making it the first vehicle in India to do so.
The CNG-powered Tata Nexon will make its debut at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024 today. Following this, the Tata Nexon will launch as the nation's first SUV with every engine option.
The carmaker has unveiled the twin-cylinder technology and exterior design of the Nexon iCNG model ahead of its official launch. The concept version of the Nexon CNG will be on display at the event. Nonetheless, the images show that the Nexon CNG has been updated with all of the most recent design modifications made during the most recent facelift.
The Nexon CNG's most significant change is that it will have a turbocharged CNG powerplant, making it the first vehicle in India to do so. The automaker has stated that the 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine will power the Nexon iCNG. The engine has a maximum torque of 170 Nm and 118 horsepower. The CNG version may have a different output; specifics are still to be disclosed. Both an automatic and manual gearbox are available for the powerplant.
The twin-cylinder technology from the automaker, which debuted in the Altroz hatchback and was later continued in the Punch CNG, will also be utilised in the Tata Nexon CNG. Tata Motors invented this technology, which uses two smaller, equally capable cylinders in place of one large cylinder. Tata Motors has been able to add more luggage space at the back thanks to this. Within the Nexon CNG, each cylinder will hold thirty litres.
In terms of appearance, the Nexon CNG shares design similarities with the facelift version that was introduced during the holiday season of the previous year. It has the same front fascia except for a new headlight and foglamp casings, a new grille and bumper, and Tata's new signature LED DRLs and connected LED lightbar up front. There are also linked LED taillights of a similar type available at the back.
