Tata Motors has recently unveiled its much-awaited Punch EV, which is now available for pre-booking with a token amount of Rs 21,000. The launch of the Punch EV is expected to bolster Tata Motors’ dominance in the Indian electric car segment, where it currently holds a commanding 85 percent market share.
The Tata Punch EV is slated to hit the Indian market around mid-February 2024, with an estimated ex-showroom price bracket of Rs 12 lakh to Rs 14 lakh. The automaker has already shared details about the exterior colors, variants, and other key aspects of the upcoming electric SUV.
Price of Tata Punch EV
The Tata Punch EV is expected to be priced between Rs 12 lakh and Rs 14 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV is now open for pre-booking both online and offline with a booking amount of Rs 21,000. The official launch of the electric SUV in India is anticipated around mid-February 2024.
The Tata Punch EV will be available in four unique exterior color options, namely Seaweed Dual Tone, Empowered Oxide Dual Tone, Fearless Red Dual Tone, Daytona Grey Dual Tone, and Pristine White Dual Tone.
The Tata Punch EV will come in two range-based variants: Punch.ev and Punch.ev Long Range. The standard model will be available in five trim options: Smart, Smart+, Adventure, Empowered, and Empowered+. The Punch EV Long Range variant will be offered in three trim options: Adventure, Empowered, and Empowered+.
While Tata Motors has not revealed specific features of the electric SUV, the upcoming Punch EV will be built on the acti.ev architecture, a dedicated EV platform that promises an enhanced digital cockpit experience. The platform is also expected to offer ADAS L2+ capability, 5G connectivity, and bi-directional charging, enabling the vehicle to charge other devices and participate in vehicle-to-vehicle charging. The Punch EV is also expected to support over-the-air (OTA) software updates and feature cloud connectivity.
While the Tata Punch EV shares design elements with the internal combustion engine-powered Punch SUV, it features unique aspects that set it apart. The front profile of the Punch EV is distinguished by a closed-off panel, eliminating the need for a traditional radiator grille. A sleek LED light bar, serving as the daytime running light, spans the width of the car and is positioned at the edge of the bonnet.
The headlamp design and a unique front bumper further differentiate the Punch EV from the ICE model. Variations in the side and rear profiles of the electric SUV are also expected compared to its internal combustion engine counterpart.
The Tata Punch EV aims to deliver a range of approximately 300 kilometers on a single charge. However, specific details regarding its power, torque, and top speed are yet to be disclosed. The SUV will come with a 3.3 kW wall box charger, and the Long Range variant will be equipped with a 7.2 kW fast home charger.
The Tata Punch EV is slated to hit the market in February 2024. However, the precise delivery schedule might fluctuate based on the chosen variant and the availability of specific exterior paint shades. In instances where the desired options are not readily available, a provisional waiting period of approximately two weeks is being communicated to customers in certain cities.
