Tata Motors has recently introduced the all-new Punch.ev and commenced its bookings for a token amount of Rs 21,000. The forthcoming EV will be available in five broad trim levels (Smart, Smart+, Adventure, Empowered, and Empowered+) and two powertrain options (Standard and Long-Range). For those considering a booking, here’s an overview of its variant-wise powertrain choices: –
As the above table reveals, the Standard range option will be offered with the entire variant lineup of the Tata Punch.ev, whereas the Long-Range powertrain option will be available from the mid-spec Adventure variant.
While Tata is yet to reveal the powertrain specifications, we expect the Punch.ev’s Standard version may feature the Tigor EV’s 26.5 kWh battery pack, providing a claimed range of approximately 315 km. On the other hand, its Long-Range could be equipped with Nexon’s 30 kWh unit, boasting a claimed range of over 325 kilometres on a single charge.
