Some spy images have also revealed that the XUV 400 EV will look quite different from Mahindra’s original XUV 300 sub-4 meter SUV. Mahindra’s new XUV 400 is expected to have a length of 4.2 meters as the sub-4 meter rule for subsidy benefits does not apply to electric vehicles.
The design of the Mahindra XUV400 will be different from the XUV 300
Talking about the design of the upcoming XUV 400, the profile of this vehicle will be slightly round instead of being boxy or flat like the XUV300.

Some more images of this model have revealed that unlike the regular electric cars, the charging slot will be placed on the front fender. Most of the design features of this new model from Mahindra will look similar to the e-XUV300 concept. The e-XUV300 was showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. The XUV400 will also get a closed front grille, different style bumpers, new headlamps and alloy wheels.
