It is the first Mahindra electric model to feature the new bronze-coloured ‘Twin Peaks’ logo in the centre. Mahindra XUV400 will be available in five colours: Arctic Blue, Everest White, Galaxy Grey, Napoli Black and Infinity Blue with dual tone roof option in Satin Copper finish. The SUV rides on high gloss alloy-wheels featuring a diamond-cut high-contrast surface treatment.
The bumper styling is also sporty with bronze accents and a protruding crease which features fog lamps and air vents. The inclusion of bronze theme in the XUV400 is inspired from Mahindra’s XUV.e range of born EVs which made their world premiere last month. The side profile is mostly identical to the XUV300 with similar glass house and character lines. The rear end gets a different design from the XUV300 with new license plate, wraparound tail-lamp cluster and tailgate.
As for features, Mahindra XUV400 gets BlueSense Plus mobile app with 60+ class leading connectivity functions with Smartwatch connectivity, OTA software updates and Multiple driving modes.
The XUV400 comes equipped with a IP67 certified (Waterproof & Dustproof) 39.4 kWh battery pack which delivers top power of 147.5 bhp and segment-best torque of 310 Nm. It has a driving range of 456 km on a single charge while doing a 0-100kmph sprint in just 8.3 seconds with a top speed of 150 kmph. The battery can be charged from 0-80 percent in only 50 minutes by using DC fast charger while it takes 6 hours 30 minutes for 0-100% charge via a 7.2 kW/32A outlet. However, a standard 3.3 kW/16A domestic socket takes 13 hours to fully charge the SUV.
