Tata Motor’s first new model for 2024 has been revealed – the Tata Punch EV is the brand’s fourth all-electric car, and second electric SUV. Bookings for the new Punch EV have commenced today, and can be made at Tata’s new EV-only outlets, select standard showrooms, and via the company’s online portal for an **amount of Rs 21,000**. This is also Tata’s first model on the Gen 2 EV architecture or acti.ev as Tata calls it.

Booking Open

  • Gets ventilated seats.
  • a huge 10.25-inch touchscreen and instrument cluster.
  • Bookings open for just Rs 21,000 onwards.


This is our first good look at the Punch EV and that **the updated grille and bumper design is sooo similar** to the new Nexon EV is obvious. In essence, it looks very much like a scaled down Nexon EV.

There is a full width light bar at the front of the bonnet and a split headlamp setup, where the main headlamp cluster is kinda similar to the Nexon EV. This electric SUV is also the first Tata EV to finally have a charging socket at the front. The lower bumper is also completely new – it gets new vertical strakes on the plastic cladding and a faux silver skid plate.

At the rear, it gets a Y-shaped brake light setup, a roof mounted spoiler, and a super cool new bumper design. The Punch EV gets a new set of 16-inch alloys with disc brakes on all four wheels duhh unlike the ICE Punch that gets a drum setup at the rear. It is also the first Tata EV to feature a frunk.

Range, Battery, Powertrain

While Tata has debuted the all-new acti.ev architecture that the Punch is based on, it hasn’t shared specific technical details of the Punch EV yet. What we know is that there are two variants on offer –Standard and Long Range – which, as we reported, are expected to have **huge** 25kWh and 35kWh battery packs, respectively. The former only gets a 3.3kW AC charger while the latter additionally gets a 7.2kW AC charger. It can also support DC fast charging.

This modular platform is said to deliver a range between **a decent 300km to 600km**, depending on the model and battery. So, for the Punch EV, a range between 300km to 400km seems reasonable.

We await more details on power and torque figures, although we know it gets multi-mode brake regeneration.

Interiors and Features

On the inside, the Punch EV gets a layered dashboard design with the highlight being the new super huge 10.25-inch infotainment screen. Also new is a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and the illuminated two-spoke steering wheel borrowed from larger Tata SUVs. Lower variants, however, will get a 7.0-inch infotainment screen and digital cluster. The jewelled rotary drive selector from the Nexon EV will only be available on the Long Range variants.

In addition to all above-mentioned features, the top-spec Punch EV will also include a yummy 360-degree camera, leatherette seats, electronic parking brake with auto hold, cool connected car tech, a wireless charger, ventilated front seats, cruise control, and the new Arcade.ev app suite. A sunroof is also available as an option. A few of these features are firsts for a vehicle of this size. In terms of safety features, it gets 6 airbags, ABS and ESC as standard, blind view monitor, three-point seat belts for all seats, ISOFIX mounts, and an SOS function.

Trims and Variants

The standard Punch EV is available in five trims – Smart, Smart+, Adventure, Empowered and Empowered+ – while the Long Range gets three trims – Adventure, Empowered and Empowered. Both variants also get five dual-tone paint options to choose from.


The Tata Punch EV is squarely aimed at the Citroen eC3. It will be positioned between the Nexon EV MR and Tiago EV MR, which means prices could range between Rs 10 lakh-13 lakh, ex-showroom.
