Tata Motors announced on Friday that its Punch micro SUV has now hit the crucial production milestone of two lakh units. Tata Punch SUV starts at ₹6 lakh for the base Pure variant and goes up to ₹9.50 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top Creative (O) variant.
First launched in October of 2021, Tata Punch was introduced to tap into the growing popularity of the SUV body type. The vehicle has found favour for a number of reasons which include a relatively affordable pricing, a capable engine and catchy body styling.
At launch, Tata Punch was introduced in four trims and 1.2-litre, three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine which is mated to a five-speed manual as well as an AMT gearbox. The engine itself produces around 86 hp and offers 113 Nm of torque. There are also a number of customization options available on the Tata Punch, a clever move because the vehicle is primarily positioned towards a younger car-buying audience.
As mentioned, Tata Punch took 10 months from date of lauch to reach the one lakh production milestone and then took another five months to rack up the next 50,000 - in January earlier this year. The drive to the two lakh milestone has been even quicker, taking all of four months.
