As Tata prepares to introduce four new electric cars to the market, the Punch EV has been spotted undergoing testing on Indian roads. The new Punch EV is expected to make its debut in the Indian market by the end of this year.
Despite heavy camouflage, the Tata Punch EV closely resembles the regular Punch, although subtle differences may exist, similar to what we’ve seen in other Tata models such as the Tiago and Nexon. Anticipate blue accents throughout the body, while the overall shape is likely to remain unchanged.
The spy images also reveal rear disc brakes on the electrified version, a departure from the drum brake system seen in the ICE version. With the electric powertrain, additional features are expected, including wireless charging, auto hold, and more.
A glimpse of the dashboard indicates that the car will retain the same 7.0-inch Harman infotainment system found in the regular version. Additions like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, and more are also likely to be included.
Powertrain details remain unknown
While specific details about the powertrain of the upcoming Tata Punch EV are not currently available, it is anticipated that the vehicle will feature Tata’s Ziptron technology, similar to the Tata Tiago EV and Nexon EV. The Ziptron technology provides various battery pack options, each offering different ranges.
The recently introduced Tiago EV, for instance, comes with a 24 kWh battery pack that achieves an MIDC-certified range of 315 km, while a smaller 19.2 kWh battery pack offers a range of 250 km. It is probable that the Tata Punch EV will maintain similar range figures.
4 new EVs coming soon
Tata is working on four new electric cars that will come to the Indian market soon. N Chandrasekaran, Chairman of Tata Sons, revealed the information to the shareholders of the company. Tata will likely launch the facelifted version of the Nexon EV. It will be a majorly cosmetic job instead of the full car update. We will also get to see an updated feature list.
The manufacturer will also bring the new Harrier EV to the market. Tata showcased a concept version of the vehicle at the Auto Expo. It will come with a dual motor set-up, which will add AWD capability to the vehicle. The vehicle is likely to offer 400 km range.
Tata will also launch the production version of the Curvv EV. It is based on Tata’s second-gen platform and the car will come with a real-world range of around 400 km.
