Tata Punch EV Set to Revolutionize Electric Mobility in India


Tata Motors has just revealed its newest all-electric car, the Punch EV, in India, which has created a lot of excitement among the public. The official release date is scheduled for January 17, marking Tata’s fourth venture into the electric vehicle industry. The Punch EV stands out as the pioneer to showcase Tata’s cutting-edge Gen 2 EV architecture, called acti.ev (active). Bookings are now open with a nominal fee of Rs 21,000. This particular model has gained immense popularity and is eagerly anticipated, highlighting the increasing demand for eco-friendly transportation choices.

Here are a few important facts about the upcoming Tata Punch EV, just before its planned release:


The Punch EV distinguishes itself with the most noticeable design variations compared to other Tata electric vehicles. Taking inspiration from the Nexon EV, the front end bears a striking resemblance to its electric counterpart, but in a more compact form. A fresh and modern look is achieved with a full-width LED light bar, a split headlamp setup with trapezoidal housing, and a front bumper adorned with a faux silver skid plate.

While the side profile and rear maintain a familiar appearance, there are notable updates such as new alloy wheels and a dual-tone rear bumper. What sets the Punch EV apart is its front trunk (frunk), making it the first Tata electric vehicle to incorporate this practical and distinctive feature into its design.


Although the complete technical details of the Punch EV have not been fully disclosed, it has been announced that the model will come in two versions: Standard and Long Range. According to initial reports, the Standard variant will have a 25kWh battery pack, while the Long Range variant will have a 35kWh battery pack. The Standard version is anticipated to have a 3.3kW AC charger, whereas the Long Range version will come with a 7.2kW AC charger and support for DC fast charging..

Tata’s groundbreaking acti.ev modular platform, created for the Punch EV, is expected to provide a wide range of 300-600km, depending on the particular model and battery setup. Taking this into account, a sensible estimated range for the Punch EV falls between 300-500km. It’s worth mentioning that this new platform represents a significant leap forward from the Gen 1 architecture, featuring notable improvements and modifications compared to the conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) platform.


The Tata Punch EV will come in five attractive colors. Here they are:

Empowered Oxide Dual Tone

Seaweed Dual Tone

Fearless Red Dual Tone

Daytona Grey Dual Tone

Pristine White Dual Tone


Tata Motors has yet to reveal the full details of the Punch EV’s interior, but we can anticipate some exciting changes in this area. The cabin will showcase a sleek 10.25-inch touchscreen and a modern digital instrument cluster. Additionally, there will be a stylish two-spoke steering wheel and a unique jeweled rotary drive selector positioned on the center console. A teaser image on Tata’s official website suggests that the HVAC control panel will also receive a redesign, featuring toggle switches and haptic buttons, similar to the layout found in the Nexon EV.

The top-tier version of the Tata Punch EV is expected to come with a wide range of impressive features. These include a 360-degree camera, comfortable leatherette seats, an electronic parking brake with auto hold, advanced connected car technology, a convenient wireless charger, ventilated front seats for added comfort, cruise control for a smooth ride, a sunroof to let in the sunshine, and the exciting new Arcade.ev app suite. It’s worth mentioning that many of these features are groundbreaking for a vehicle of this size, making the Punch EV even more appealing and innovative.


The Tata Punch EV has been strategically designed to compete with the Citroen eC3, positioning itself between the Tiago EV MR and the Nexon EV MR in the Tata lineup. Priced between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 13 lakh, the Punch EV aims to provide an attractive choice in the electric vehicle market.
