Mahindra XUV400 electric SUV launch timeline announced: To challenge Tata Nexon EV


The all-electric version of the Mahindra XUV300 is just around the corner. Mahindra will launch the electric version of the XUV300 – likely to be called the XUV400 EV – in September this year.  This announcement came from Mahindra earlier today, when the automaker revealed that it had received an investment of Rs. 1,925 crore (USD 250 million) from British International Investments (BII) for a new electric vehicle company. The new electric vehicle company from Mahindra is currently valued at 9 billion dollars, and the first vehicle to roll out from this company will be the XUV400 EV. The Mahindra XUV400 EV will go up against the Tata Nexon Electric SUV, which is India’s best selling electric car.

While the Mahindra XUV300 measures under 4 meters in length for excise duty benefits, the XUV400 EV will be longer, at about 4.2 meters. This is because the Indian government doesn’t have excise benefits based on length for electric vehicles. The larger size of the XUV400 EV is expected to make it a lot more comfortable and spacious than the Tata Nexon EV.

It’ll also give the new electric vehicle a stab at larger electric SUVs such as the MG eZS and the Hyundai Kona, two other hot selling electric cars of India. As for pricing, we expect the Mahindra XUV400 EV to start at about Rs. 15 lakh, bang in Nexon Electric territory. A 375 Km range is expected for the top-end trim of the Mahindra XUV400 EV while lower variants could deliver about 250-300 Kms of real world range per charge.
