Indian automaker Mahindra is setting the stage for the unveiling of its first all-electric car, the XUV400, in September 2022. In fact, the brand is also set to reveal a new range of electric SUVs at its Oxfordshire centre in the United Kingdom on 15 August, 2022.
Mahindra could reveal the prices of the electric XUV400 at the beginning of next year, while it will commence deliveries of this electric SUV by the first quarter of 2023. Although the details about the electric powertrain of the electric XUV400 are unavailable yet, it may be powered by a single-motor setup.
