The Tata Punch EV is next on the list of Tata’s EV launches after the recent facelift of the Nexon.ev. Tata has been testing the SUV for a while and recently a new test mule has been spotted yet again but this time some new features have also been revealed.
Tata Punch EV – So what are the new details?
The mule was spotted during test runs in the Mumbai-Pune expressway and from the looks of it, the EV will get Nexon-like styling in the front, the sharply outlined headlights give it away despite the camouflage. However, the grille design might be different. Apart from the design cues from the 2023 Nexon facelift, the EV will also get a 360-degree camera system, as a camera can be seen in the bumper.
The major change that was noted this time was a brand-new set of alloy wheels that are most likely production-spec because they are the same ones used in the Tiago and ICE Punch.
Another major change was inside the car, which is a new floating 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen system. The display will either be from the Fearless variant which has thinner bezels or the one used in the Creative variant.
Design-wise apart from the Nexon-like front styling, the SUV will overall follow the design language of the ICE Punch, similar to the Nexon.ev which follows the Nexon facelift’s design. Also, the SUV will likely get EV badges and blue accents to differentiate it from the ICE Punch.
As for the powertrain, no information is available except that the EV will most likely be powered by the same Ziptron technology that also powers the Nexon.ev and Tata Tiago EV.
Tata Punch EV – Launch date?
That’s it for new details. The company has been doing a good job of keeping upcoming SUVs hidden, even going as far as to add a fake exhaust tip, which again honestly attracts more attention.
The EV is expected to launch before this year ends or by early 2024, though no date or timeline is given. What’s confirmed is that the Tata Punch EV is the next EV launch from the brand. Also, taking into note the increasing rate of appearance of the test mules, it won’t be wrong to assume the entry-level SUV EV will make its debut very soon.
