Mahindra XUV400: Exterior Styling and Colour Options
The XUV300 serves as the inspiration for the design of the bigger XUV400. The electric Mahindra XUV400 is 4200mm longer than the ICE XUV300, thanks to the SsangYong Tivoli, which was originally designed for the 300. A blocked-off grille, bumper garnish with projector headlamps and LED DRLs, and satin-copper arrowhead inlays embellish the front. The LED taillamps at the back have the same shape but new copper accents, and the vehicle is equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels. Arctic Blue, Everest White, Galaxy Grey, Napoli Black, and Infinity Blue are the four available colour options, all of which can be combined with a satin-copper roof.
Mahindra XUV400: Powertrain, Range, and Charging Time
The Mahindra XUV400 is powered by a single electric motor with 150bhp maximum power and 310Nm peak torque. The car can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 8.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 150km/h with this engine. There are two battery options for the EC: a 34.5kWh battery pack and a 39.4kWh unit. The EC has a range of 375km, whereas the EL has an MIDC range of 456km. There are three driving modes in addition to the single-pedal Lively mode: Fun, Fast, and Fearless.
A 3.3kW or 7.2kW charger can be used to charge the Mahindra XUV400. The 7.2kW charger can fully charge the battery (39.4kWh) in 6.5 hours, while the 3.3kW charger takes 13 hours. In less than 50 minutes, a DC fast charger can charge a battery from 0 to 80 per cent. A 16A house plug can also be used with the vehicle. The SUV promises a guarantee of 3 years for unlimited kilometres and an extended battery and motor warranty of 8 years or 1,60,000km.
Mahindra XUV400: Interior and Features
The interior of the XUV400 EV is almost comparable to that of the XUV300. The dashboard is nearly identical, with some additional copper accents around the centre console, AC vents, and the new Twin Peak logo on the steering wheel. Inside, the XUV400 features a rearview camera, an electric sunroof, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, up to six airbags, four-wheel disc brakes, and compatibility with BlueSense Plus mobile apps, which enable 60+ connectivity features such as over-the-air (OTA) updates. The XUV400's three drive modes – Fun, Fast, and Fearless – modify the steering, throttle, and regenerative energy responses.
