Riding on the success of its twin cylinder technology, Tata Motors has not only refreshed its existing CNG line up with the upgraded Tiago and Tigor iCNG but also launched the brand new Punch iCNG with this revolutionary technology. The twin-cylinder technology that debuted with the Altroz iCNG in May this year, has received an astounding response for the disruption it has created in the segment – enabling CNG vehicles to provide their customers with a non-compromised boot space, best-in-class features and a superior drive experience.
“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,” said Vinay Pant, Head-Marketing, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd.
With multiple milestones to its credit, the Punch has been successful in creating its own mark. And now equipped with the most innovative CNG technology in the country and exquisite features, this Punch goes far and beyond.
It comes with advanced features like Voice assisted Electric Sunroof, Front Seat Armrest, USB C Type charger and a Shark fin antenna. The smart placement of the twin cylinders in Punch iCNG under the luggage areas ensures boot space similar to that in ICE SUVs.
It offers incredible performance with the powerful 1.2L Revotron Engine. The advance iCNG Technology gives an unmatched performance with a perfect combination of power and pick-up by delivering superior power of 73.4 PS @6000 rpm and torque of 103 Nm @ 3230 rpm.
Tiago and Tigor iCNG:
The Tiago and Tigor brands have been appreciated for their versatility. Both models are the only vehicles in their segments to be offered with three powertrain options – petrol, electric and natural gas.
The latest refreshes of the Tiago and Tigor iCNG will come equipped with Tata Motors’ modern twin-cylinder technology that provides consumers with no compromise on boot space, making them an even more appealing option amongst the CNG loyalists. This technology enables the Tigor to offer a CNG tank capacity of 70L (water capacity), the highest in the industry. Since their launch in January 2022, the Tiago and Tigor iCNG have gained popularity with consumers, with combined sales of over 50,000 units till date.
Tata Motors’ venture into the CNG segment has been quite successful, and all its offerings have been immensely appreciated in their respective segments, thereby growing the Company’s market share and strengthening its multi powertrain strategy.
