The all-electric Tata Punch EV, India's first and safest electric vehicle scoring a 5-star rating in the Bharat NCAP crash test, has crossed the 10,000-unit sales milestone within 5 months after launch in January 2024. Tata says the Punch EV could achieve this milestone due to a combination of long range, exalting performance, cutting-edge technology, and features generally found in segments 2–3 above its own. 

Priced between Rs 10.99 lakh and Rs 15.49 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the Punch EV is the automaker's first electric car to be based on the new Gen 2 EV architecture, dubbed 'acti.ev'. Tata's second electric SUV, the Punch EV, comes in five broad variants – Smart, Smart +, Adventure, Empowered, and Empowered+. As for colour options, it can be had in five dual-tone and four monotone exterior shades, including Seawood Green, Daytona Grey, Fearless Red, Pristine White, and Empowered Oxide.

Tata Punch EV: Powertrain

The Tata Punch EV has two powertrain options: Medium Range (MR) and Long Range (LR). The former gets a 25kWh battery yielding a range of 315km (MIDC), while the latter is equipped with a larger 35kWh battery with an MIDC range of 421km on a single charge.

Both battery packs come mated to permanent magnet synchronous motors, but the MR variants make less power (81bhp) than the LR variants (120bhp). With 81bhp and 114Nm at its disposal, the Punch EV MR can sprint from 0 to 100km/h in 13.5 seconds, while the LR can do the same in 9.5 seconds, with 120bhp and 190Nm of torque.

Features-wise, the Tata Punch EV offers twin 10.25-inch screens, one for the infotainment and another for the instrumentation. It also gets an electric sunroof (optional), a jewelled rotary drive selector (available only with LR variants), ventillated front seats, connected car tech, automatic climate control, cruise control, a wireless charger, and an air purifier.

For safety, six airbags, ABS, and ESC are standard on all Punch variants. Other bits are a 360-degree camera, a blind spot monitor, ISOFIX mounts, three-point seatbelts for all seats, and an electronic parking brake with auto-hold functionality.
