As of March 2022, Tata Motors has sold 10,526 units of Punch Mini-SUV in the Indian market, which is quite impressive sales performance.
Tata Punch was launched in India in October last year, and has already become one of the most popular cars in our country. A total of 10,526 units of the subcompact SUV were sold in the domestic market in March 2022, making it the fourth-highest selling SUV in India this month.
As of February 2022, Tata Punch’s sales figures stood at 9,592 units, which translates to a sales growth of 9.74 percent on a month-on-month (MoM) basis for March 2022. Since the slightest crossover did not happen Selling for a long time, there is no comparison (YoY) sales per year to make here.
Currently, Tata Punch offers a single engine option – a 1.2-liter, naturally ambitious, inline-3 petrol mill. This powerplant is good for a maximum power of 86 PS and a maximum torque of 113 Nm, and the transmission choices consist of a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 5-speed AMT. An inactive start-stop system is provided as standard, which helps to increase the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
Tata Motors is expected to add a 1.2-liter turbo-petrol engine option to the Punch, probably the same one that is responsible for the Altroz i-turbo (110 PS / 140 Nm). In addition, an all-electric version of the small SUV is expected to be in development, which will debut in a year or two. The Tata Punch EV will be the most affordable electric car in the brand’s lineup at launch.
The price of Tata Punch in the Indian market is quite competitive, from Rs. 5.67 lakhs to Rs 9.48 lakhs (former showroom, New Delhi). It is available at the following trim level (Personas) – Pure, Adventure, Accomplished, Creative and Kaziranga editions. There is an optional package on offer for each trim.
Tata Punch ranks below the Nexon in the domestic car maker’s passenger car range. In the Indian market, it competes with the likes of Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, as well as hatchback alternatives like Maruti Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, etc.
