Tata Motors on Thursday rolled out the 1,00,000th unit of Punch compact SUV from its manufacturing facility in Pune, making it the fastest SUV in the country to achieve this milestone within a span of just 10 months of its launch. The achievement has been made possible due to robust demand by customers for the SUV that comes with five-star Global NCAP safety rating.

Since its launch in October last year, Punch has consistently been a part of top 10 highest-selling cars in the country. The SUV witnessed its highest-ever sales in July this year at 11,007 units. “(Punch) is one of the highest selling SUV from our ‘New Forever’ portfolio. This achievement speaks highly of the strong response from customers," said Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd.
