The Nexon’s “best-in-industry dust and water proof battery pack” that satisfies IP67 requirements, fitted with the effect resistant battery housing and supports charging through regenerative braking could see a mild enhancement prior to it goes into the Altroz EV.

The Altroz electrical sits on the AgiLe Light FLeXibLe Advanced’ (ALFA) Architecture and will be placed as a premium metropolitan automobile. The somewhat unrealistic principle showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show sported a modern aero command center with a cockpit-like style featuring premium products. The twin display setup and the electric parking brake might show expensive for the hatchback, so expect to see a smaller sized screen, an instrument cluster with a small digital display and a traditional handbrake lever on the Altroz EV.
