Tata has recently introduced the Punch iCNG in the Indian market, showcasing its commitment to providing alternative options to traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. The company’s focus on electric vehicles (EVs) and compressed natural gas (CNG) cars aims to address the growing frustration among customers due to the constant surge in fuel prices. With electric cars still being relatively expensive, CNG cars emerge as a practical and cost-effective solution for many. Especially for city-dwellers, CNG infrastructure is becoming more readily available, making CNG cars increasingly popular in recent years. As people seek more sustainable and economical choices, the demand for CNG vehicles is on the rise across the country.

Tata Punch iCNG Walkaround Video
The video by Oye Arjun on YouTube provides a detailed look at the exterior and interior of the micro SUV. At the front, the car features sleek LED DRLs with projector headlamps, a chrome belt, glossy black treatment on the grille, and fog lamps. The side profile showcases stylish 16-inch alloy wheels, body-colored door handles, and turn indicators on the outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs). Moving to the rear, the car lacks a wiper but comes with LED taillamps.
Inside the cabin, there are several noteworthy features, including a digital instrument cluster, a 7-inch infotainment display by Harman, push-button start/stop, armrests, steering-mounted controls, automatic climate control, electric sunroof, voice commands, and more. The vlogger takes the viewers on a comprehensive tour, highlighting the car’s design and various interior amenities.
The Tata Punch iCNG is equipped with the same 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Revotron engine as its petrol counterpart. However, in its CNG configuration, the engine delivers a robust output of 73.5 PS and 103 Nm of peak power and torque. The power is channeled through a 5-speed manual gearbox for smooth transmission.
Impressively, the Punch iCNG maintains a ground clearance of 187 mm and offers a spacious boot capacity of 210 litres. This ample boot space is a result of smart engineering by Tata Motors. The car accommodates two CNG tanks underneath the boot cover, where the spare tire was traditionally placed. These tanks have a total capacity of 60 litres (water capacity). In place of the spare tire, the Punch comes with a tyre puncture repair kit, ensuring convenience and practicality for the driver.
The Tata Punch iCNG is competitively priced, ranging from Rs 7.10 lakh to Rs 9.68 lakh (ex-showroom). These attractive price points make it a compelling choice for customers looking for alternative powertrain options. With Tata Motors offering both CNG and electric powertrains across various models, they are steadily gaining ground and challenging Hyundai for the second spot on the sales charts.
It will be fascinating to observe the market’s response to the Punch iCNG. The upcoming sales numbers will provide a clearer picture of how well-received this micro SUV is among customers.
