Celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi, Mahindra & Mahindra’s Chairman Anand Mahindra has unveiled the first look of the ‘all-electric’ Mahindra SUV – XUV400.
“Today is a very auspicious day, so delighted to announce another curtain-raiser coming your way soon,” says a video shared on Twitter by the Indian billionaire.
As per the video, the car will be “revealed” on September 8, 2022.
Earlier, Mahindra & Mahindra held a large event in the UK to promote its future line of electric SUVs.
Models like the XUV.e8 or XUV 800, XUV.e9 or XUV 900, and three further e-SUV concepts from its Born electric range are included in this.
The manufacturer additionally unveiled the INGLO electric platform that would support its electric lineup displayed in the UK. According to the most recent rumours, Mahindra said it was likely to introduce the new XUV400 electric SUV in India in September 2022.
The new XUV400 electric SUV appears to have been doing test drives on public roads a few weeks ago, according to spy photos of the vehicle. Significantly, Mahindra &Mahindra must make up ground in the EV market as the introduction of their INGLO-based electric vehicles is still years away.
Mahindra & Mahindra already face formidable competition in the EV market from Tata Motors’ Nexon EV, now the most popular electric vehicle in India.
Sources claimed that South Korean battery maker LG Energy Solution would supply batteries to Mahindra’s first electric SUV.
According to the source, the batteries will power the Indian automaker’s XUV400 SUVs, which should arrive between the fourth quarter and January.
