 The Tata Punch EV looks more premium than its internal combustion engine (ICE) counterpart, both inside and out

The Tata Punch has undergone a transformation with the introduction of its all-electric counterpart, the Tata Punch EV. The all-electric micro SUV gets an updated fascia and an extensive feature list, distinguishing itself from its internal combustion engine (ICE) counterpart. In this story, we compare the designs and differences of both the all-electric and ICE versions of the Punch through images.

The biggest design differences between the Tata Punch EV and Tata Punch ICE are evident at the front, where the fascia of the Punch EV has undergone a complete makeover. The electric version of the Punch showcases a Nexon EV-like fascia, featuring connected LED DRLs that span the width of the bonnet, a redesigned headlamp housing with an all-LED lighting setup, and a modified front bumper with a silver skid plate. The Punch EV's DRL setup also includes sequential turn indicators, a smart charging indicator, and welcome and goodbye animations. 

On the other hand, the LED DRLs on the Punch ICE are not connected and lack any animation or sequential function for turn indicators. The micro SUV features an all-black front grille and halogen projector headlamps. The fog light setup on the Punch too is halogen, unlike the LED fog lamps fitted on the Punch EV.

In profile, the Punch EV maintains almost the same design as its ICE version. The only notable distinctions on the electric Punch are the aerodynamically styled 16-inch alloy wheels.

Tata hasn't implemented any significant design alterations to the rear of the Punch EV either. Both versions of the Punch sport LED taillamps, with the electric Punch distinguishing itself through a silver skid plate integrated into the rear bumper and the Punch.EV moniker on the tailgate.

Unlike the ICE version of the Punch, the Punch EV also gets the new 2-spoke steering wheel with an illuminated Tata logo.

The ICE version of the Tata Punch on the other hand comes with a smaller 7-inch touchscreen unit which features wired Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. However, both Punch EV and Punch come with a 6-speaker Harman sound system.
