Mahindra is preparing to launch its first modern electric vehicle, the XUV400, in the domestic market on September 8, 2022. Only recently, the domestic SUV manufacturer debuted its specialized INGLO platform, which will back five electric SUVs sold under the XUV.e and Born Electric brands. The first e-SUV, designated the XUV.e8, will be released in December 2024.
It will be designed in the same manner as the XUV700. In April 2025, the XUV.e9 with a coupe-like roofline will be the second zero-emission SUV. Mahindra has more than two years before the debut of the entire new range of EVs. The XUV400 will compete with the growing trend for passenger electrified SUVs.
It is the production version of the eXUV300 concept that debuted at the 2020 Detroit Auto Show. It shares many similarities with the XUV300 compact SUV, including the ICE platform, the X100. The SsangYong Tivoli’s X100 architecture has been re-engineered to meet the needs of the electric car, and it will be approximately 200 mm longer than the XUV300 (at 4.2 m).
Mahindra XUV400 Features
With sub-four-meter tax breaks not available for electric vehicles, Mahindra has opted to take advantage of the chance and lengthen the overall length of the SUV. The exterior will have new LED headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, a shut-off front grille, a redesigned front and rear bumper section, freshly designed taillights, a changed tailgate, and so on.

The Mahindra XUV400 will be the brand’s most inexpensive electric SUV, with costs starting at around Rs. 14 lakh (ex-showroom). More advanced technology, such as ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) derived from the XUV700, a larger touchscreen entertainment system with AdrenoX interface, linked tech, and so on, are expected in the cabin.
In terms of performance, a single electric motor with 150 hp will power the front wheels, allowing it a claimed driving range of well over 350 km on a single charge. Mahindra may also introduce two battery packs to compete with the Nexon EV Max.
