Mahindra and Mahindra have been emerging in the field of electric mobility. Even though the Indian carmaker was the first one to step into the space, the competition has grown a lot and Mahindra is yet to match shoulders. However, Mahindra is already working on its entire electric production cars and the first model is speculated to be the 2022 Mahindra XUV400 Electric. Here is everything you need to know about it.
2022 Mahindra XUV400 Electric - Details
Mahindra XUV400 is speculated to be the all-electric incarnation of the XUV300 sub-compact SUV. Mahindra is expected to launch the XUV400 by late 2022 and it will take on the likes of the Tata Nexon EV and MG’s upcoming affordable electric SUV. Mahindra showcased the unfinished prototype concept of the XUV300 Electric at the 2020 Auto Expo and we expect a ton of changes to be made over the model on display.
2022 Mahindra XUV400 Electric could be underpinned by Mahindra’s scalable and modular MESMA platform with two battery pack options on offer. The XUV300 on sale in the Indian market has now aged, whereas the Tivoli, on which the XUV300 is based, has already received a mid-cycle update in the international market. Hence, we can expect a lot of changes on the XUV400 in terms of design, dimensions, technology and features. As speculated by rumours, the XUV400 will offer the segment-best range along with a long list of features.
Mahindra has already stated the testing of the upcoming XUV400 with the bodyshell of the XUV300. We expect Mahindra to keep the XUV400 under the sub-four meter length to get advantage from lower tax impositions. In addition to that, government subsidies and no registration charges would make the product even more appealing to the future prospective buyers. Currently, the Nexon holds over 70 per cent EV market share, followed by the popular MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona EV.
