Mahindra will unveil its Born Electric vision on August 15 showcasing what the future of EVs from them will look like.
The Mahindra XUV400 electric SUV was spied indicating that the launch is nearing. Mahindra has a concrete plan to enter the mass EV market with a ton of launches planned for the next few years. The vision of what these products will look like will be unveiled on August 15. XUV400 is essentially the electric version of the XUV300 compact SUV but will be longer than the latter by 200 mm. Tata Motors has over 70% of the EV market in India and its Nexon EV is achieving great heights with each passing month. This will be Mahindra’s answer to that.

Mahindra XUV400 Electric Close To Launch?
The spy images have been uploaded on Instagram by cruise_rider01. This SUV is heavily camouflaged but the signature LED DRLs are clearly visible. We have seen an elongated version of these DRLs in the XUV300 with which it will share its exterior styling. The headlamp cluster also resembles the one on XUV300, the grille area is sleek but will be closed off as EVs don’t need air intake for the engine. Apart from that, the bumper is sportily designed with a hint of skid plate underneath the camouflage.

Similarly, the side profile looks like the XUV300 albeit with longer dimensions. While the XUV300 is just under 4 m long, this is reported to be around 200 mm longer. This will, essentially, put in a segment of MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona Electric. The side body panels have sporty creases with muscular rear fenders and prominent wheel arches. There are functional roof rails as well. The taillamps are partially visible in these images and there is a roof-mounted spoiler.
