At the same price, the smaller Tata Punch EV offers more technology and range than the Tata Nexon EV

Tata Nexon EV vs Tata Punch EV

With the recent price reduction, the Tata Nexon EV has become more affordable by up to Rs 1.2 lakh, with a starting price of Rs 14.49 lakh (ex-showroom). It just so happens that is also the ex-showroom price for the top-spec Tata Punch EV Empowered Plus Long Range variant. 

Tata has stated that it has passed on the benefits of the reduced battery prices to its customers by lowering the prices of the Nexon EV (and the Tiago EV too). On the other hand, for the Punch EV, the automaker mentioned that it had already factored in reduced battery pack costs at the time of its launch in January 2024. 

Let’s see how the entry-level Nexon EV compares to the top variant of the Punch EV on paper, starting with their specifications.

Tata Punch EV Interior

  • At the same price point of Rs 14.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Tata Punch EV offers far more features than the Tata Nexon EV. 

  • The Punch EV will look like the richer offering of the two at this price with its all-LED lighting with welcome and goodbye animations,  and 16-inch alloys and roof rails.

  • However, the Nexon EV Creative Plus mid range variant still gets LED headlights with LED DRLs and LED taillamps. Those 16-inch steelies get stylised wheel covers which do make them look better than usual base-spec wheels.

  • Inside, the Tata Punch EV Empowered Plus variant not only gets a bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen system, it also features a larger 10.25-inch digital driver’s display, whereas the Nexon EV gets 7-inch screens for both. Additionally, the Punch EV’s instrument display can be synced with the infotainment system to display maps via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

  • The base-spec Nexon EV misses out on features like ventilated front seats, cruise control, wireless phone charger, air purifier, automatic headlights, and rain sensing wipers, all of which are available with the top-spec variant of the Tata Punch EV.

  • When it comes to safety, the Nexon EV does get 6 airbags, a rear parking camera with sensors, and electronic stability control. But the Punch EV’s safety kit further includes a 360-degree camera, electronic parking brake with auto-hold, and a tyre pressure monitoring system as well.

Clearly, the Tata Punch EV’s top-spec Empowered Plus trim offers a lot more features and more driving range than the Tata Nexon EV’s base-spec Creative Plus variant, at the exact same price. However, the Nexon EV offers the benefit of bigger road presence and a more spacious cabin thanks to its larger size making it slightly more suitable as a family car.

If you are ready to compromise on the size and a bit of interior space, the top-spec Tata Punch EV offers a lot more value for money over the base-spec Tata Nexon EV. Which EV will choose between the two at the same price and why? Let us know in the comments.
