Mahindra XUV400 EV will be revealed on September 8th. It is based on the XUV300 compact SUV.
Pratap Bose, Mahindra and Mahindra’s Chief Designer Officer, has officially teased the XUV400 EV for the first time. According to the teaser, the new electric SUV will be unveiled on September 8th. Mahindra will finally launch its first fully electric SUV, competing with the best-selling electric vehicle in India, the Tata Nexon EV.
The teaser shows the charging port which is placed on the left front fender. This is the same placement that was spotted on the test mules. The XUV400 EV will come with some kind of fast charging and home charging facility as well.
The teaser also includes a front view of the electric SUV. It has headlamps that look similar to those on the XUV300. However, the vertical LED strip found on the bumper is no longer present. The halogen projector appears to be used in the XUV400 EV, and there are L-shaped LED Daytime Running Lamps.
The XUV400 EV boasts Mahindra’s new twins-peak logo. The grille is now closed because there is no engine underneath the bonnet. The grille now gets ‘x’ elements. This could be the new design element that we might see throughout Mahindra’s new electric vehicles.
Mahindra is calling the new SUV the XUV400 to differentiate it from the XUV300, which is a compact SUV. This is due to the XUV400’s expected length of 4.2 metres, indicating that it will not be a compact SUV. Mahindra made this decision because there are no excise duty benefits for electric vehicles under 4 metres in length. As a result, it makes sense for the company to take advantage of the platform’s full potential and create a 4.2-metre electric SUV. As a result, it will be longer than the Nexon EV.
The teaser does not reveal any details about the battery or the diving range. However, it is expected that two battery sizes will be available, as Tata Motors does with the Nexon EV Prime and Nexon EV Max. Because they will be direct competitors, the XUV400 EV is expected to be priced similarly to the Tata Nexon EV.
