Tata Motors is working on an electrified version of their hugely popular micro-SUV, the Punch. This widely anticipated car’s test mules have been sighted on multiple occasions across the country, and the frequency of its sightings has recently increased. Recently, another Tata Punch EV test mule was observed sitting at a charging station with a charger affixed to the front of the vehicle.
B.choww published a photo of the Tata Punch EV standing at an electric vehicle charging station on their Instagram page. The car appears to be identical to the normal ICE Tata Punch in the first image; nevertheless, there are a few variations, some of which are minor and others not so much. The first thing to notice is that the car’s charging panel is located on the front bumper. The lid has been opened, and the normal charger has been linked to it.
Aside from that, the overall front of the car in the image appears to be identical to the ICE Punch. Another thing to notice is that the car is completely coated in body-hugging camouflage. In the following image, it is also possible to see that the car has been outfitted with what appear to be Tata Tiago alloy wheels. This is most likely just a replacement set of wheels and tyres, and the actual model will have a different design. Apart from that, the main change is that the car will be fitted with disc brakes in the rear, which the current ICE variant does not have.
Another Tata Punch EV test mule was sighted just a few days ago, but this time it was sitting on a flatbed. The same crucial details were noticed in that situation as well. The only other thing I noticed about the prior test mule was that interior images of it were also shared. And, like the exterior, the interior appeared to be virtually identical to the departing model. The interior of the Punch EV is likewise equipped with the same 7.0-inch Harman Kardon touchscreen infotainment screen and automatic climate control.
The exact details of this forthcoming EV’s engine are unknown at this time, however the Punch EV is expected to be driven by the same Ziptron technology as powers the Tata Tiago EV and Nexon EV. There are various battery packs available with varying ranges. The business provides the Tiago EV hatchback with a 24 kWh battery pack that has a MIDC-certified range of 315 km. A smaller 19.2 kWh battery pack with a MIDC-certified range of 250 km is also available. These figures are anticipated to be preserved by the Tata Punch EV as well.
