Written by News Team

The mini powerhouse, the Tata Punch micro SUV, has been doing decent sales in India since its debut in October 2021. Fast forward to January 2024,  Tata is celebrating a whopping three lakh Punch units hitting the streets, just a little over two years since it first hit the road. Priced from ₹6 lakh (ex-showroom), the Punch provides a budget option for SUV buyers.

Tata Punch – The Journey

The Punch started its milestone journey by hitting the one lakh production mark in August 2022, merely 10 months into its journey. In May 2023, the Tata Punch crossed the two lakh milestone, achieving it in a snappy one and a half years. Now, the third lakh milestone just breezed in, making it a quick eight months since its last celebration.

The Tata Punch is playing the field with some tough competition, especially from the Hyundai Exter, giving it a good run for its money. However, the Exter entered the market late last year. In order to keep up, Tata spiced things up by throwing in special editions like the Camo and Kaziranga for the Punch. Tata even introduced good to have features like a sunroof and a wireless phone charger, making the Punch an even more exciting package.

Tata also introduced the Punch in a CNG variant in 2023, giving those wallet-conscious users a chance to enjoy the Punch with lower running costs. The iCNG variant comes with Tata’s innovative twin-cylinder technology which does not take up the entire boot space. It doesn’t stop there. Tata recently opened bookings for the Tata Punch.EV. The EV variant comes with a fresh design and a lot of features, which will trickle down to the ICE variants as well in their next update.

In the ring, the Tata Punch throws punches with the Hyundai Exter and Maruti Suzuki Ignis, standing tall as an SUV alternative to cars like the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and Maruti Suzuki Swift.
