Tata has been doing phenomenally well in the EV sector. Especially in terms of sales, it has been dominating the market. All this while, we have been proud of our very own Indian brand for making such advancements. But where’s Mahindra been? It too is an Indian brand, and a good one. Well, Mahindra has been busy launching record-breaking SUVs like the Thar, XUV700, and the Scorpio – N. However, that’s not it. Mahindra’s next big project for 2022 is the XUV400. Today, let’s talk about the Mahindra XUV400!
The Mahindra XUV400 is an electric SUV, that will be based on the XUV300. The design will be revised both on the outside and inside. With the little information we have been able to gather from the spy shots, the eSUV will get redesigned LED lights that will remind you of some Japanese SUVs. The Mahindra XUV400 will also offer more space in the cabin.
What’s new on the Mahindra XUV400
Well, though it will be an EV version of the XUV300, we do expect many new features on this one. Since that launch is still at least one year away, we hope that Mahindra loads up this car with the latest tech and convenience features. ADAS is also something that is highly probable on this car. If so, then this would be the first EV in the segment offering ADAS!
Mahindra XUV400 – Range
The expected range for the Mahindra XUV400 lies between 400 – 450KMs on a single charge. These numbers would be very ideal for an EV of this segment. Mahindra is known to be a good optimizer of power and economy, and the same is expected from the XUV400.
Why is Mahindra late to the game?
There can be two reasons behind this. First – Mahindra has been focusing a lot on manufacturing, marketing, and selling their SUVs. In the last 3 years, Mahindra has pulled off amazing lanches and campaigns for their new cars. This may be one reason for the delay in launching an EV. The second reason might be pricing. As of now, EVs are considerably more expensive when compared to their ICE counterparts. They might just be waiting for EV pricing to normalize before they launch the Mahindra XUV400. This will give them instant recognition as a VFM EV brand. A bonus (and dream) reason might be that Mahindra is developing some cutting-edge technology that will change the EV game in India. But let’s focus on the first two reasons for now :).
