Tata Motors is soon going to launch the electric version of the Punch, and it’s going to get big upgrades over the ICE version. Tata has been very busy testing the EV on the roads as once again they were spotted and this time it reveals several new details while still being wrapped in camouflage.
The latest spy shot comes from the Youtuber, Vipul Chavan, and this spy shots reveals new details of the Punch EV. For instance, the test mule almost gives away the exterior design of the EV. It looks like the Punch EV will follow the same design language as its elder sibling, Nexon EV facelift like the connected LED DRLs that spans across the whole width of the electric SUV. The lower bumper design features a vertical straight lines pattern which is different than the tri-arrow pattern on the ICE Punch.
Below the connected LED DRLs, it has cube-shape LED headlamps that could be split headlamps vertically positioned. Moving to the side profile, it largely remains the same, except it will be getting new aero-efficient 5-spoke alloy wheel design to help with the range. Moving to the rear, it’s unlikely it’ll get connected tail lamps, but the design will be tweaked and will look somewhat similar to the Nexon EV Facelift.
Earlier Spy Shots of the Punch EV had revealed updated interiors over the ICE version. The EV was seen sporting new 10.25-inch Infotainment System which could be available from mid to top trims while lower trims gets 7-inch unit. It’ll borrow the two-spoke steering wheel from the Nexon EV which has a display that illuminates the Tata logo. The EV will also get rotary dial gear shifters, and it’s possible it’ll get digital instrument cluster or maybe a redesigned instrument cluster that displays EV-related information.
Apart from this, the EV was said to be seen with a electronic parking brake and could be exclusive to top variant.
When it comes to Features, it’ll come with automatic climate control, 10.25-inch infotainment system with wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto, Wireless Charging Pad, Voice-activated electric sunroof, LED headlamps, and many more. As for the safety feature, it’s expected to come with 6 Airbags, ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Cruise Control, Tyre-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Disc Brakes for all wheels, 360 Surround View Camera, Rear Parking Sensors, and few more.
While we’ve no official word on the battery specs, but considering the Punch EV will be the fourth EV in the line-up, it can come with a battery pack bigger than the Tigor (26 kWh) to offer range of up to 500 KMs.
Tata has said, the Punch EV could hit the roads before the year ends, and since December is the only month left this year, expect the EV to launch in the mid to late December.
