Tata Motors is slated to reveal the prices of the new Punch.ev in October, a month after the facelifted Nexon.ev’s launch. The new Tata Punch.ev is likely to retain most of its ICE-model’s design except for minor tweaks. However, the micro-SUV is also expected to receive a number of new features, some of which can be seen on the latest spy shots.
Tata Punch.ev: New Spy Shots Emerge
The 2023 Tata Punch.ev is currently in its final stages of development, with the test-mule in the spy shots looking like a production-ready unit. As mentioned above, the exterior styling is very similar to the Tata Punch petrol, except for the new LED headlights, different alloy wheels, and light blue accents. What’s more interesting is the interior, which looks more upmarket than its sibling. The leaked shots revealed that the Punch.ev will get a new twin-spoke steering wheel with an illuminated logo, similar to the new Nexon. It also gets a 10.25-inch infotainment system, larger than the 8-inch unit on the ICE-variants.
It remains to be seen if the Punch.ev will get an electric sunroof like the petrol models. If it does, it will become the most affordable EV to get a sunroof in India.
Tata Punch.ev: Powertrain Details
Powering the new Tata Punch.ev will be Tata’s Ziptron powertrain that also does duty in other Tata EVs. It will feature a liquid-cooled battery that will power a front-axle-mounted electric motor. Similar to other Tata electric models, the Punch.ev will likely be offered with two battery pack sizes and charging options. Additionally, it will be the first Tata EV to get a front bumper mounted charging socket
