Both EVs in this comparison have similar battery pack sizes offering a claimed range of up to 315 km

Tata recently implemented price cuts on two of its best-selling electric cars, one of which is the Tata Tiago EV. Following the price reduction, the Tiago EV's XZ Plus Lux long-range (LR) trim is now closely priced to the Tata Punch EV Smart Plus medium-range (MR) variant. According to Tata, the price cut comes as a result of reduced battery pack cost. Additionally, the company mentioned that it had already factored in reduced battery pack costs when launching the Punch EV so it is unlikely to get any such price revisions in the near future.

Here’s how the specifications of the Punch EV’s one-above-base Smart Plus variant goes against those of the Tata Tiago EV XZ Plus Tech Lux long range variant. Before we get into details, let’s have a look at the prices of these EVs.
