Mahindra has recently updated the XUV400 electric SUV with more features just months after it first went on sale. The updated Mahindra XUV400 is now priced at Rs. 19.19 lakh (ex-showroom) for the EL variant and gets notable updates which were otherwise missing on the electric SUV. The new features now make the 2023 Mahindra XUV400 more capable than ever to take on the Tata Nexon EV in the same space.
The updated 2023 Mahindra XUV400 now comes equipped with Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Hill Hold Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), auto-dimming IRVM and cruise control on the EL variant. The electric SUV also gets fog lamps, boot lamp and tweeters as part of the audio system.
There are no changes under the hood with power coming from a single electric motor tuned for 150PS and 310Nm of peak torque. Mahindra offers the XUV400 with two battery options – 34.5 kWhn and 39.4 kWh. The former offers a range of 375 km (MIDC), while the latter claims a range of 456 km (MIDC) on a single charge.
The XUV400 is based on the XUV300 but is longer in comparison since EVs do not conform to the sub-4-metre regulations applied on ICE cars. Apart from the basic visual changes to give it an individual identity, both models are identical in other aspects. The XUV300 is due for a facelift by the end of 2024 or in 2025, which is when we expect to see more comprehensive upgrades on the XUV400 as well.
Meanwhile, Mahindra’s electric offensive will begin in December 2024 with the XUV.e8 electric SUV. This will be followed up with the XUV.e9 and BE.05 in 2025 and BE.07 in 2026. The company also has the production version of the Thar.e concept in the works, apart from electrified versions of the Scorpio and Bolero. The models will arrive by the end of the decade.
