Mahindra XUV400 EV release date revealed by teaser 

Highlights

  • The XUV400 EV has leaked on numerous occasions in the past
  • Crucially, the new EV won’t be a part of the company’s recently unveiled INGLO platform
  • The XUV400 could be competitively priced to take on the Tata Nexon EV lineup

Mahindra has officially teased the arrival of the hotly anticipated XUV400 EV, which is expected to resemble the XUV300 mid-size SUV. Notably, the XUV400 wouldn’t belong to the company’s recently detailed INGLO platform for EVs.

The first of the INGLO-based Mahindra EVs will only arrive by late 2024. But EV fans have the XUV400 to look forward to, with the teaser providing some key details, including the date when it would be revealed.

The teaser video uploaded by RushLane gives us an early glimpse of the XUV400’s design, while still maintaining some mystery. While there’s not much we can tell from this short video, we now know that the automaker will formally unveil the new EV on September 8. While we may get to see the EV in all its glory next week, there’s still no word on when it would reach consumers.

 Mahindra XUV400 EV rumoured features, price

While the electric XUV400 will look fairly similar to its ICE-based sibling, it is actually lengthier by around 0.2 metres, measuring 4.2 meters overall. We also know that the XUV400 will leverage the Mahindra AdrenoX platform for its touchscreen infotainment system. Meanwhile, the advanced driver-assistance system or ADAS will likely be available, but only for the top-end versions of the XUV400, RushLane speculates.

These top-shelf features suggest that Mahindra’s new EV will compete directly with the Tata Nexon EV and its variants. The latter currently holds a substantial portion of the Indian EV market, so it could be a big ask for Mahindra to dent Tata Motors’ market share.

Mahindra has managed to keep most of the hardware of the new EV a secret, including the power train and battery options. However, it is rumoured that the company could offer the XUV400 EV in two battery options, with the range expected to be roughly the same as the Tata Nexon EV Prime and Max.

Pricing information hasn’t been disclosed either, but since the XUV400 will compete with the Nexon EV lineup, it’s safe to assume that it will cost between Rs 15 lakhs to Rs 20 lakhs, depending on the variant.
