On Republic Day, Mahindra & Mahindra opened reservations for the XUV400 electric SUV, and it has been officially announced that the company has received well over 10,000 reservations. The five-seater SUV is now on backorder for up to seven months, but the domestic SUV expert hopes to deliver 20,000 cars within the first year of its launch.

The company has stated that top-end EL version deliveries will be given priority. The first consumer deliveries will start in March 2023, although the low-end model will be delivered to customers later this year, around the holiday season. The Mahindra XUV400 faces off in the local market against the Tata Nexon EV, MG ZS EV, and BYD Atto 3.

The EC grade can be purchased with either a 3.3 kW or 7.2 kW AC charger and the smaller battery pack; however, the EL grade can only be purchased with the 7.2 kW AC charger and the larger 39.5 kWh battery pack. Priced between Rs. 15.99 lacks and Rs. 18.99 lacks (ex-showroom), the Mahindra XUV400 is available for only the first 5,000 reservations of each variant at the introductory rates.

It has two battery options: a 34.5 kWh and a 39.4 kWh. Both have an electric motor with 150 horsepower and 310 Nm output. The driving range of the former is 375 km, while the latter’s range is 456 km on a single charge. It can be refilled back to 80% from zero with a 50 kW DC fast charger in about 50 minutes.

There are two basic AC chargers available: 3.3 kW and 7.2 kW. The XUV400 is built on the same chassis as the XUV300 but has been expanded to have a length of nearly four metres overall. In contrast to its ICE sister, its boot space capacity is not compromised.

The features include disc brakes on all four wheels, six airbags, a steering wheel with mounted controls, automatic climate control, cruise control, a semi-digital instrument console, movable headrests, and more. It also includes a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with AdrenoX, OTR updates, a single-pane sunroof, in-car connected technology, automatic climate control, automatic parking, and more.
