Tata Motors has launched the 1lakhth unit of the Punch micro-SUV from its Pune manufacturing facility. It has achieved a new milestone by reaching this number in a span of 10 months as it was launched in October 2021. The Tata Punch is the fastest SUV in India to reach 100,000 sales.
Commenting on this milestone, Mr. Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd. and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. said, "We are happy to share that the Punch has crossed the 1 Lakh sales mark in a short period of 10 months. It is one of the bestselling SUVs from our 'New Forever' portfolio. This achievement is testament to the strong customer response and we are very grateful to them for their lasting trust.
Tata Punch recorded the highest sales last month with 11,007 units sold in the domestic market. The micro-SUV has consistently been a part of the top 10 best-selling cars in India. It is equipped with many high-end features such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, digital instrument panel, automatic climate control, automatic lights and cruise control. The Tata Punch is offered in 8 color variants that also include two-tone shades. Some of the standout features of the SUV are LED DRLs, LED tail lamps, rain-sensing wipers, ORVM auto-folding, 16-inch diamond-cut alloys and iRA connected car technology with more than 25 features. The Tata Punch has received a 5-star safety rating from Global NCAP, making it the safest SUV in India.
“Punch is our second product based on the ALFA architecture and has successfully built its popularity by creating a new segment, thereby reinforcing the four main pillars of a true SUV – Unique design, versatile and impressive performance, roomy and spacious interior and ultimate safety. We are confident that the Punch will continue to win the love of customers and continue to redefine the SUV experience through its performance,” added Chandra.
Under the hood, the Punch SUV has a 1.2L petrol engine which delivers an ARAI-certified mileage of 18.82 kmpl with manual and 18.97 kmpl with AMT gearbox options. It directly rivals Maruti Suzuki Ignis in the Indian market.
