The XUV400 will be the first of the five electric SUVs to hit the roads and will make its debut in India next month. Unlike, the other four upcoming electric SUVs, the XUV400 is based on a current vehicle in Mahindra's lineup - the XUV300. Both the XUV300 and XUV400 electric are based on the Ssangyong Tivoli's platform. However, unlike the XUV300, the new XUV400 will make use of all the space offered by the Tivoli's platform and be around 4.2 metres long as EVs are not eligible for the subsidies offered for sub 4-metre vehicles by the Indian government.
