Chandigarh, (Aditi) : Mahindra & Mahindra, India’s leading SUV manufacturer, took the wraps off the fun and fast XUV400 electric SUV on the eve of World EV Day, for personal car buyers looking to embrace the future. Part of the Mahindra EV iconic brand XUV recently announced in the UK, the XUV400 is the first EV from Mahindra to feature the twin peaks logo with satin copper finish, giving it a distinctive presence on the road.

The XUV400 is a generously sized electric SUV that boasts cutting-edge technology, powerful features and thrilling performance. Operating in the C-segment SUV category, the XUV400 is 4200 mm long and boasts a wheelbase of 2600 mm, which offers its occupants not only excellent cabin space and legroom to luxuriate in but also best-in-class boot space of 378 litres/418 litres (up to roof). At 1821 mm, it is also the widest e-SUV in the category – offering plenty of shoulder space for occupants. The dimensions of the XUV400 also impart an unmissable road presence. The stunning performance of the XUV400 makes it the first Indian make passenger vehicle with the fastest acceleration in the non-luxury segment as it attains the 100 kmph mark from standstill in a mere 8.3 seconds and goes on to reach a top speed of 150 kmph. The thrilling performance is matched by its exemplary driving range. A full charge delivers an anxiety-free range of 456 kilometres as per Indian driving cycle standards (MIDC). This comes via a 39.4kW battery pack that uses state-of-the-art Li-ion cells, which offer longevity as well as quick charging – it takes only 50 minutes to complete 80% charging with the 50kW DC fast charger. When charged via a 7.2 kW/32A outlet, it takes 6 hours 30 minutes for 0-100% charge and the same is achieved in 13 hours while using a standard 3.3 kW/16A domestic socket.

The XUV400 is designed to stand out on Indian roads and comes with a signature trim accent in sophisticated satin copper finish. It rides on high gloss alloy-wheels featuring a diamond-cut high-contrast surface treatment.

Built in collaboration with global partners from South Korea, the XUV400 leverages their strengths across various segments – an advanced tech eco-system for speed and expertise – including calibration, system integration and vehicle validation. Powered by global technology leaders, the XUV400 comes equipped with high precision micro controllers for critical parts such as smart vehicle control unit and battery management system with highest level of safety compliance according to global standards.
