Tata Motors has more than 80% of the market for electric passenger cars, so it is currently the leader in this market. The company plans to make a million electric cars in the country to meet the growing demand. Tata Motors sells the Tiago EV, the Tigor EV, the Nexon EV Prime, and the Nexon EV Max right now. The local car company has confirmed that the Punch electric will soon be added to its fleet of electric vehicles.
Tata Motors had shown off a pre-production version of the Altroz electric car at the 2020 Auto Expo. In fact, the model that is ready to go into production has been seen testing on Indian roads more than once. The Punch EV could come out before the Altroz EV, according to plans. We think that the new Tata Punch EV will be shown to the public for the first time at the 2023 Auto Expo. It will come after the Tigor EV and before the Nexon EV Prime.
The Citroen eC3, which will come out in the first quarter of 2023, will be a direct competitor to the Tata Punch EV. The report says that the electric Punch could come with two types of batteries and have a range of between 300km and 350km. The Punch EV will be the first electric car made by Tata that is built on the latest ALFA modular platform. The ALFA platform can work with different body styles and engine types, such as electric, internal combustion engine (ICE), and hybrid. The Altroz hatchback is also built on this platform.
The Punch EV will likely have the same features as the Punch ICE. It is likely to have a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that works with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a semi-digital instrument cluster, automatic air conditioning, powered ORVMs, cruise control, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, and other features. This model is also likely to have regenerative braking with multiple modes, traction control, iTPMS, leather seats, and other features.
The price range for the ICE version of the Tata Punch is between Rs 6 lakh and Rs 9.54 lakh. We think that the price of the new Tata Punch EV will be between Rs 11 lakh and Rs 13 lakh.
