New Delhi: Mahindra has introduced the XUV 400 (Mahindra XUV400). It has a battery pack of 39.4kwh. The company claims that the XUV400 can deliver a range of 456 km on a single charge. It is based on the company’s own XUV300. It can be called an electric version of the XUV300. However, its length is more than the XUV300. Its length is 4.2 meters while the length of the XUV300 is less than 4 meters. But, is the XUV 400 perfect? Let us tell you about its 3 drawbacks.
1- Old Design
As we mentioned, it is based on the XUV300, so its design is almost identical to the XUV300, which you have already seen. However, a lot of copper finish elements have been used to make the SUV look electric. Apart from this, the front is also different from the XUV300 but the rest remains the same as the XUV300.
2- Lack of features
The XUV400 is not a very feature loaded electric SUV. The Type C charging port is also not provided in the XUV400, whereas now many cars have started getting Type C charging port. Apart from this, it also does not get ventilated seats while its rival Tata Nexon EV Max gets ventilated seats (front). Wireless charging is also not available in it.
3- Rear AC Vents
It is believed that the price of XUV400 can be above Rs 15 lakh. However, the prices have not been announced at the moment. But, if it is priced above Rs 15 lakh, then people would at least expect to get rear AC vents while the car does not get rear AC vents.
It is not that the car only has its drawbacks, it also has its advantages. The motor is quite powerful and the battery pack is also huge. Apart from this, the length of the car is 4.2 meters, so more space is available in the car. It gets the best boot space in the segment.
