The latest teaser of the upcoming Mahindra XUV400 reveals the SUV’s grille-like elements
Mahindra has put up a teaser of the upcoming XUV400 electric SUV ahead of his global unveil that’s slated to take place on 8th September. The teaser reveals some interesting details of the SUV.
The headlights look the same as the XUV300’s projector units. However, the grille design looks different. It gets a jewel-like design and might not a functional unit owing to the SUV being an electric car.
The XUV400 will be Mahindra’s first EV venture after not tasting success with the REVAi, e2o, and eVerito. The electric SUV will compete with Tata Tigor EV, Nexon Prime EV, and Nexon EV Max.
The price announcement and deliveries are likely to start only from October onwards. Sources said the SUV will come powered by battery packs from LG Energy Solution, a subsidiary of LG Chem which, in-turn, is a subsidiary of LG Corporation, South Korea.
The EV features a hunched back design at the rear for increased dimensions. It will not be restricted to the XUV300’s under-4-metre length but rather be longer at around 4.2 metres to accommodate the electric powertrain.
It’s expected to be high on space. The C pillar will be quite broad for better room inside. The tail lights will sport different design elements inside. The shape of the tail lights will be quite edgy than the outgoing model.
The upcoming XUV400 will command a premium over the XUV300 that will include the increased costs of the electric powertrain just like the Nexon’s electric variant. We expect a price tag of around Rs. 20 lakhs (ex-showroom).
The SUV is expected to be loaded to the brim with features. It might get ADAS features from the XUV700. It’s expected to be quite powerful with terrific acceleration figures owing to the electric powertrain.
