The first new automobile was an electric entry-level model that made its debut in 2024. We are referring to the Tata Punch EV, which will go on sale later in January 2024 and for which reservations are now being taken. Technical details about this electric micro-SUV, which is the first vehicle built on Tata’s new Acti.EV platform is not yet available. In comparison to the internal combustion engine (ICE) version of the Punch, the electric version features an updated front fascia along with additional technologies and conveniences. The top ten features that the future Tata Punch EV has over the standard Tata Punch SUV are as follows.
Tata Punch EV Projector LED headlamps
Punch EV will come equipped with the new LED projector headlamps, although the ordinary Punch only has halogen projector headlamps. This information was disclosed by Tata. Along with the LED DRL strip that runs the entire width of the bonnet and has welcome and farewell sequences, they are also a part of the redesigned fascia, which is meant to resemble the Tata Nexon EV.
Tata Punch EV 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment
With its entry-level electric SUV, Tata has unveiled its bigger touchscreen infotainment system. It is a feature of the redesigned dashboard and improves the Punch EV’s interior experience over the Punch. Even better, it has the Arcade. ev function, which provides access to a variety of apps that can be played with while the electric vehicle is being charged. The standard Punch, on the other hand, has a 7-inch touchscreen.
Tata Punch EV 10.25-inch digital driver’s display
The premium, fully digital instrument cluster for the Punch EV, as opposed to the semi-digital cluster for the standard Punch, is another characteristic that has been carried over from the Nexon EV. This function is exclusive to the highest-spec model of the electric micro-SUV and is not available in any other model within this category.

Tata Punch EV 6 airbags
Six airbags will be included as standard equipment on the Punch EV, a feature update that is anticipated to become mandatory very soon. Rear parking sensors, ABS, and electronic stability control (ESC) are some of the additional safety measures available.
Tata Punch EV Ventilated front seats
The Punch EV’s most unexpected feature-first addition is likely the premium comfort of ventilated front seats, which Tata’s entry-level electric SUV will have. This will also only be available on the top variant.
Tata Punch EV Electronic parking brake
The electric Punch model has an electronic parking brake that is simpler to use and has an auto-hold option that is helpful while driving on hills, in contrast to the standard Punch, which has a traditional stick in the center console for the manual parking brake.
Tata Punch EV 360-degree camera
Tata will provide the Punch EV with a 360-degree surround vision camera system, elevating both the safety factor and the premium user experience over that of the standard Punch. This capability makes maneuvering in confined spaces even easier, even though the Punch’s compact size makes it easy to operate in urban areas.
Tata Punch EV Wireless phone charger
A standard feature of any contemporary vehicle, the Punch EV’s wireless phone charging will only be available on the top version. The standard Punch is devoid of this functionality as well.
