New Launch Today : Tata Punch CNG starting Rs. 7.1 Lakhs
Tata Motors, India’s largest automaker, has taken a giant step forward toward greener transportation options with the introduction of its revamped iCNG lineup, demonstrating once again its dedication to technological advancement and consumer pleasure. The new portfolio has the improved Tiago and Tigor iCNG models in addition to the highly anticipated Punch iCNG.
The base price of a Tata Motors Punch CNG is Rs 7.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), with the highest-end model costing Rs 9.68 lakh. There are three different Punch CNG trims to choose from: Pure, Adventure, and Accomplished. Both the Adventure and Accomplished trims have the same available packages as the standard Punch. However, the item is not available on the top-tier Creative trim offered by Tata. After the Tiago and the Tigor, the Altroz is the fourth CNG vehicle offered by Tata.
In CNG mode, the Punch generates 73.4hp and 103Nm and features a trunk capacity of 210 litres.
Tata Punch CNG – Impressive Features
The Punch CNG is equipped with the same three-cylinder 1.2-liter engine seen in the gasoline-powered Punch. The maximum output from this engine is 86 horsepower and 113 Newton-meters of torque when running on gasoline, and 73.4 horsepower and 103 Newton-meters of peak torque while running on compressed natural gas. This engine is only available in conjunction with a 5-speed manual transmission. Unlike Maruti and Hyundai, the Punch can be started immediately in CNG mode, just like the rest of the company’s CNG lineup.
The Punch CNG utilises Tata Motors’ tried-and-true dual-cylinder system, first seen in the Altroz CNG. Two smaller tanks, totaling 60 liters, have been installed under the trunk floor to make more room in the trunk. The 210-liters trunk space of the CNG Punch is 156-liters smaller than that of the gasoline-powered Punch.

Exterior, Interior, Features of Tata Punch CNG
The only noticeable alteration to the exterior of the Punch CNG is the addition of a ‘iCNG’ insignia, similar to those found on other Tata CNG vehicles, to the trunk lid. Similarly, the interior of the Punch CNG has not undergone any major revisions.
The Punch CNG’s top-tier trim includes a sunroof, which is now also standard on the Punch’s gasoline-powered variant, as well as a 7.0-inch touchscreen and digital driver’s display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, 16-inch alloy wheels, an engine start/stop button, automatic climate control, automatic projector headlamps, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and more.
The Punch CNG is Hyundai’s direct response to the Exter, which was just released and features a CNG powerplant as standard equipment. The latter may be purchased for an amount between Rs 8.24 lakh and Rs 8.97 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
