Mahindra XUV400 : More Details

Mahindra recently launched the updated XUV400. The all-electric SUV is now priced between INR 19.19-19.39 lakh. With this, the car now gets features like cruise control, front fog lamps and two tweeters. Additional features like Electronic Stability Program (ESP), hill hold assist and auto dimming IRVM are also added. Lastly, the Mahindra XUV400 will also get a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

Mahindra has targets to deliver over 20k units within a year of the launch. The first deliveries will begin in March for the XUV400 EL. Meanwhile, during the upcoming Diwali season, the XUV400 EC will roll out. The pricing is introductory, as is the case with all new Mahindra vehicles.

Furthermore, there are also plans to offer a panoramic sunroof across its XUV range. Hence, we can also expect the XUV400 to get this popular feature. However, it might arrive first on the XUV300 followed by the electric XUV400. The XUV400 facelift might get the sunroof option when it launches sometime in 2025.
