Ahead of its launch, Tata motors have again teased about the awaited micro SUV-Tata Punch. The teaser shows that the Tata Punch is capable of conquering any terrain. The Tata Punch was presented in the Auto Expo in 2020 under the concept name H2X. Even though auto enthusiasts were assuming the name of the micro SUV to be H2X, many were surprised by the new name.
The Tata Punch will fit just below the Tata Nexon in terms of hierarchy. The new SUV-Punch will launch and subsequently go for sale in the upcoming months (between October and November 2021) in India.
The teaser claims that the Punch will have multiple modes for conquering multiple terrains. The upcoming Punch will be the first car offered by Tata to be built on ALFA-ARC (Agile Light Flexible Advanced Architecture) and will be developed under the design language of Impact 2.0.
