Mahindra XUV400 – Battery, Charging Time, and Range
The Mahindra XUV400 gets an IP-67 rated 39.5kWh battery pack that claims an ARAI-tested range of 456km on a single charge. It powers a Permanent Magnet Synchronous (PMS) Motors generating maximum power of 149PS, along with a best-in-class peak torque of 310Nm. The drive is sent to the front wheels. Sweetening the driving dynamics are three available driving modes: FUN, FAST and FEARLESS. Mahindra claims the XUV400 can reach 0-100kmph mark in 8.3 seconds before attaining a top speed of 160 kmph.
It can be charged to the 80% mark through a 50kW DC fast charger in just 50 minutes. A 7.2kW charger, on the other hand, can juice it up to 100 percent in 6 hours 30 minutes. One can even charge it through a regular 16A socket that will take around 13 hours to fully energise the battery pack.
Mahindra XUV400 – Design and Dimensions
Speaking of the design, the Mahindra XUV400 looks largely similar to its ICE counterpart, except for some EV-specific changes, such as a clossed-off front grille with dual-tone black & copper elements and tweaked bumpers at both ends. It also receives new alloy wheels and a redesigned tail lamp, making the SUV look smart and trendy.
The SUV will be available in 5 attractive color options: Arctic Blue, Everest White, Galaxy Grey, Napoli Black and Infinity Blue.
Dimensionally, the SUV measures 4.2m in length, making it 205mm longer than the XUV300. However, the width and wheelbase of the car remains the same. It is also bigger than India’s best-selling electric car, the Tata Nexon EV.
