The XUV400 EV will be longer than the XUV300 SUV, with a price to be announced in early 2023.
According to this spy photo that has surfaced online, the Mahindra XUV400 EV will have unique rear styling. As previously reported, Mahindra’s new electric SUV, which will compete with the popular Nexon EV, will be based on the XUV300 compact SUV and will most likely be dubbed the XUV400 when it debuts in early 2023.
- XUV400 EV to get a unique rear design
- Will be 4.2m long but wheelbase length to be same as XUV300
- Expected to get tech features from XUV700
The Mahindra XUV400 EV will have a Distinctive Appearance
The SUV’s unique rear design is confirmed by the spy photo. The new wraparound taillights stretch horizontally, the tailgate and rear bumper are different, and the overall look of the SUV is much rounder than the 4m-long XUV300. Mahindra will extend the XUV400 EV’s length to around 4.2m, as we previously reported, because the sub-4m rule for subsidy benefits does not apply to electric vehicles. The latest spy shot also confirms that the final design of the new Mahindra XUV400 EV will be more in line with the styling of the eXUV300 concept, which had a similar rear profile and was shown at the Auto Expo 2020.
The Mahindra XUV400 EV is Expected to have The Following Powertrain and Features
Mahindra will equip the electric SUV with a single front-wheel-drive motor that produces 150 horsepower, slightly more than the Tata Nexon EV Max’s 143 horsepower. While details on range and battery capacity are still unknown, the XUV400 EV is expected to include the latest connected technology and ADAS features from the XUV700.
Future Plans for Mahindra
The XUV400 EV will be critical in helping the company establish itself as a mainstream electric vehicle manufacturer, similar to Tata Motors and MG Motor. The SUV is part of Mahindra’s plan to launch up to eight passenger electric vehicles by 2027, including ‘born electric’ SUVs. Mahindra recently signed an agreement with Volkswagen to investigate the use of its batteries and other EV components in Mahindra’s future electric vehicles.
