Tata Altroz and Punch iCNG showcased at Auto Expo 2023

Tata Punch CNG utilises the automaker’s dual-cylinder setup for its fuel tanks. The two cylinders are housed underneath the boot floor. Each cylinder has a storage capacity of 30 litres. This frees up a lot of storage space. The CNG-powered SUV has a boot space capacity of 210 litres.

Powering the Tata Punch CNG is the 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine that is also found in the petrol variant. This engine produces a maximum power output of 77hp and 97Nm of torque in a CNG setup. In a petrol configuration, this engine puts out 86hp and 113Nm. Punch CNG will only be offered in a 5-speed manual transmission.

Tata Altroz and Punch iCNG: What’s on offer

Commenting on the launch, Mr Vinay Pant, Head-Marketing, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., said: “Building further on our success with the Altroz iCNG, and to make the CNG segment even more hotly contested, we are excited to introduce the twin cylinder technology in not just one but three products today – the Tiago, Tigor and the much awaited and loved sub compact SUV, the Tata Punch. Since its debut at the Auto Expo 2023, the Punch iCNG has been one of the most awaited products in this segment. 

With its uncompromised boot space and high end feature upgrades, the Punch iCNG demonstrates the go anywhere attitude of an SUV, which is engineered to meet the constantly evolving requirements of customers, who are tech savvy and demand best in class features along with an environment friendly and economical product. I am confident that these introductions put together will make our CNG line up appealing, holistic and stronger than ever.”
