Specification Comparison of XUV400 and Nexon EV
The country’s EV industry is expanding rapidly, as are mass-market Indian companies like as Tata and Mahindra. Tata Motors now sells three EV models: the Nexon EV, the Tigor EV, and the recently announced Tiago EV. In the form of the XUV400, Mahindra’s opponent has now unveiled its maiden attempt at an electric SUV. The Mahindra E-SUV competes directly with the Tata Nexon EV, so here’s a short spec comparison.
Tata offers two Nexon EV models: the Nexon EV Prime and the Nexon EV Max. The former is priced at Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom) and comes in three variants: XM, XZ Plus, and XZ Plus Lux. Meanwhile, the latter is offered in two variants: XZ+ and XZ+ Lux, beginning at Rs 18.34 lakh (ex-showroom).
The recently released Mahindra XUV400, on the other hand, is offered in two trim levels, EC and EL, with a starting price of Rs 16 lakh (ex-showroom).
With the EV Prime and EV Max variants, Tata Nexon EV receives two battery pack options: 30.2kWh and 40.5kWh. The former is coupled to a motor that generates 127bhp and 245Nm of torque and has an ARAI-certified range of 312km. The latter, on the other hand, is coupled to a motor that generates 141bhp and 250Nm of torque and has an ARAI-certified range of 437km on a full charge.
The Mahindra XUV400 also comes with two battery pack options: 34.5kWh and 39.4kWh. Both battery packs are linked to an electric motor that produces 150bhp and 310Nm of torque. Despite having a similar power output, the 34.5kWh battery pack has an ARA-certified range of 375km and the 39.4kWh battery pack has a range of 456km on a full charge.
