Tata Punch EV
The electric avatar of the Tata Punch will be designed on Generation 2 (Sigma) platform, a heavily modified version of the ALFA architecture. This platform will be optimized for converting to electric, as the transmission tunnel will be removed to create a flat floor to accommodate the larger battery pack. It is expected to be offered with two battery pack options.
The company showcased the Curvv EV concept in April 2022. The concept indicates the brand’s next step towards an electric future. Tata has confirmed that the SUV coupe will offer multiple powertrains, including pure EV, petrol and diesel. The electric model is based on the modified X1 platform used in the Nexon range. It is expected to get a bigger 40kWh battery pack with a range of over 400km. The new model will rival the MG ZS EV, Hyundai Kona EV and the Mahindra XUV400. It will likely be 4.3 meters in length and get a longer wheelbase.
The Avinya is the first concept model from the brand to be based on the Generation 3 architecture – ‘Born Electric’, which supports multiple body styles. The new architecture will offer more cabin space with the same footprint. Tata’s Born Electric is a skateboard pure EV platform in which designers can use the best weight and space efficiency (best weight and space efficiency). Powertrain details of the all-new Tata Avinya EV are yet to be revealed. Tata Motors aims to offer an electric range of over 500 km for all its future EVs designed on its Generation 3 platform.
