It also includes an LED light bar, a split headlamp setup, and a new alloy wheel design. This is the Tata’s first vehicle built on its new Gen 2 architecture called Acti.EV. This architecture will underpin a range of new Tata EVs and SUVs, including the upcoming Curvv EV, the new Sierra EV, and the Harrier EV.

The Tata Punch EV offers a choice of two battery options; a 25kWh battery with around 315km of MIDC range and a 35kWh battery with around 421km of MIDC range. Two charger options are available, a 3.3kW wall box charger and a 7.2kW fast charger. The Punch EV supports DC fast charging and can be charged from 10-80 percent in 56mins using a 50kW DC fast charger. Power is delivered to the front wheels via a 122hp, 190Nm motor on the Long Range variants, and an 82hp, 114Nm motor on the regular variants.
According to Tata Motors, the Long Range variants can accelerate from 0-100kph in under 9.5 seconds and the standard models complete the speed in 13.5 seconds. The EV has a water wading capacity of 350mm and a ground clearance of 190mm.
