Tata Punch waiting period goes up to 4 months

Tata Punch customers in Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata can expect delays of up to 3 months.

The Tata Punch made its debut in the Indian market last month. Pre-bookings for the sub-4 meter crossover had opened on October 4, and Tata had confirmed there was enough inventory to meet pre-launch bookings.

Now that Tata has delivered the initial batch of cars, the waiting period for the Punch is slowly creeping up. According to a media report, customers in Delhi will have to wait up to 4 months for delivery. Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata customers can expect delays of up to 3 months, while customers in Bangalore and Hyderabad will have to wait for up to 2 months. The cars are readily available in Chennai.

The Punch is available in four variants - Pure, Adventure, Accomplished and Creative, with prices starting at Rs. 5.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Tata Punch is based on the Agile Light Flexible Advanced (ALFA) Architecture. The crossover is powered by a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine featuring an automatic engine start / stop function, as well as two drive modes - City and Eco. The engine puts out 85 BHP and 113 Nm and is mated to either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed AMT.
