Tata Motors launched the Tata Punch in India on October 18 2021. Since then, it has been a great hit in the market. The company also rolled out the 1,00,000th unit of the Punch micro SUV in August 2022. By this, the Punch became the first SUV to achieve this milestone in just 10 months since its launch.
The Tata Punch EV will be based on the ALFA platform, which underpins the Altroz hatchback. It is also expected that the Punch EV will be powered by Ziptron electric powertrain that powers up the Tiago and Tigor EV but with higher power output.
Talking about the battery, we expect Tata to offer the Punch EV with two battery pack options – medium range and long range.
Tata will also make some changes to the exterior and interior bits to distinguish itself from the ICE variant. The Punch will get electric-themed styling tropes and an Electric-specific Teal Blue shade with a tri-arrow design and the ‘humanity’ line grille similar to other Tata EVs.
Moving on to the inside, the Punch EV will retain much of the look from its petrol variant. It will get a dark-toned interior with EV-themed colour detailing with electric blue accents around the instrument panel, AC vents and on the seat fabric with a tri-arrow pattern looks particularly nice.
It is expected that Tata might showcase the Punch EV at the upcoming Delhi Auto Expo and the launch could take place sometime in September 2023. We expect prices to range between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 14 lakh (ex-showroom).
