All you need to know about the Mahindra XUV400 EV: Features, range, expected price, and more

Highlights

  • Mahindra is expected to launch the EV by January next year
  • The EV will feature a 39.4 kWh battery with fast charging capabilities
  • Early tests reveal superior performance and acceleration

Mahindra has formally revealed the XUV400, although interested buyers won’t be able to get it until at least January 2023. The EV would compete with the likes of the Tata Nexon EV and its variants, although this depends on the XUV400’s pricing. Ahead of the EV’s official availability in January 2023, here’s a refresher on its features.

Mahindra XUV400 EV features, design

Performance is front and centre with the XUV400, with a 0-100 kmph acceleration of just 8.3 seconds. This is delivered with what Mahindra calls a “best-in-class” torque output of 310 Nm. The Zee News team took the new EV for a spin at Chennai’s Mahindra SUV Proving Track, spotting a few nice touches by the Mahindra design team.

Unfortunately, the cabin appears to be fairly mainstream, with a comparatively smaller infotainment system and a handful of buttons to go with it. Cruise control is available by default, however, while customers also get a digital instrument console and a sunroof. There is some hope that Mahindra will iron out these minor deficiencies ahead of the January 2023 release. The electric SUV will also get six airbags.

As most of us know already, the overall design of the XUV400 has been borrowed from the XUV300. There’s the new copper twin peaks company logo on the front, while the XUV400 has the distinction of being the widest car in the segment. It has an overall length of 4.2 metres, unlike the XUV300 which had to be modified to fit under the 4-metre segment for tax purposes.

Mahindra XUV400 EV range

Mahindra says the XUV400 can run for up to 456 km on a single charge using the 39.4 kWh battery. The company is also providing fast charging capabilities for the battery, enabling 0-80% charging in under 60 minutes. Mahindra may also sell a wall-mounted fast charging unit as an accessory for XUV400 owners. This could allow the EV to fully recharge in 6 to 7 hours.

Mahindra XUV400 EV price

Mahindra claims it will market the XUV400 as a C-segment EV, indicating a higher price tag. This could push the car’s starting price beyond Rs 20 lakhs. But given that Mahindra is trying to compete with Tata Motors’ Nexon EV lineup, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if the company decides to sell it for a similar price tag as the top-tier Nexon models, such as the Nexon EV Max.
