In a major accident, a Tata Punch highlights the Tata Motors’ safety standards by keeping passengers safe despite a major hit.
Tata Motors has really improved safety standards in Indian cars. It is one of the few companies to have three vehicles with a 5-star safety rating. Even entry-level cars have received good safety ratings. Having an SUV is especially important in a country with a ton of bad roads. Now, a major accident of the Tata Punch put the safety ratings of the SUV to test. Nikhil Rana has shared the details of the serious Tata Punch accident on his YouTube channel to raise awareness of safety standards in modern vehicles. Let’s take a closer look at the aftermath of a Tata Punch accident on the highway.
As you can see, a Tata Punch is badly damaged on the front. However, it managed to save the lives of two people. This accident is reported to have occurred on NH7 as the driver was traveling towards Nepal along with his brother. Suddenly, a pickup truck came from the wrong side and hit the side mirror on the Tata Punch. Since the Tata Punch was at approximately the speed of 70kmph, it got a little imbalanced and hit the divider in front. While the front was damaged, the two airbags were deployed perfectly and saved both passengers. The only damage was on the outside and the insides were barely affected. The Tata Punch managed to keep even the engine safe.
Thousands of people lose their lives in avoidable accidents every year. Over-speeding is a clear no-no on Indian roads. Fortunately, now you can invest in a car with good build quality and safety equipment). The increased sales of Tata cars are likely to encourage other manufacturers to build safer cars as well. In most situations, the safety equipment and the build quality of the car could save your lives. Still, follow the traffic rules and report anyone driving recklessly to the authorities. Aso ensures that don’t drink and drive like the pickup driver in this incident.
