Both claim to deliver over 400 km of driving range, but here’s how much they actually deliver in our latest ‘Drive to Death’ video

Tata Punch EV vs Tata Nexon EV

Tata recently launched the Punch EV, providing an all-electric option for those looking for an entry-level EV in an SUV form factor. The Indian marque also offers the Nexon EV, which is the best selling EV in the country at the moment. If you are considering either, watch to see which of the Tata electric SUVs offers a better range in real-world driving conditions.

But before that, take a look at the powertrain options offered with both the Tata Punch EV and the Nexon EV in the table below.

With the powertrain specifications of both the Punch EV and Nexon EV in check, find out how they perform in our ‘Drive To Death’ test comparison video below.

With both the Nexon EV and Punch EV fully charged, the former's odometer indicated 99 percent charge with a range of 289 km, while the latter's odometer indicated 100 percent charge with a range of 233 km. Both EVs are set to Eco drive mode with regenerative braking at Level 3. Given the test is conducted in hot summer days, the AC and ventilated seats are also switched on for the test.

Tata Punch EV

For the test, long-range variants of both models were selected. The Punch EV has a claimed range of 421 km, while the Nexon EV offers a claimed range of 465 km. Our test route includes inclined city driving conditions, inner-city roads with minimal traffic, and highways.

Tata Punch EV

The Punch EV delivered 258.6 km of range with one percent charge remaining, while the Nexon EV delivered 284.2 km with zero percent battery. Both EVs failed to reach 300 km of range. However, we believe that under cooler conditions, with temperatures not as high as 41 degrees, they might have performed better.
