Small SUV, Big Shocker! Tata’s Punch Packs an Electric Punch You Won’t Believe

The car we experienced boasted the larger battery and a powerful 122 horsepower motor, delivering a 0-100 km/h time of 9.5 seconds – a significant improvement over the petrol model. Three driving modes (Eco, City, Sport) allow you to tailor performance to your needs.

Comfortable Ride and Confident Handling

The Punch EV’s stiffer body shell and well-tuned suspension ensure a comfortable and capable ride, even on rough roads. The car’s 190mm ground clearance adds to its off-road ability, further enhanced by Hill Hold and Hill Descent Control features. While handling isn’t its strongest suit, it offers enough grip and confidence for everyday driving.

Spacious Interior and Feature-Packed Cabin

The Punch EV offers a spacious interior for its size, with comfortable seating positions and a decent 366L of cargo space. The rear seat, while slightly higher than the petrol version, avoids the typical “knees-up” position seen in many EVs. The front cabin boasts a feature-rich environment, with a large 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster, ventilated front seats, a sunroof, and more.
