Mahindra first revealed the XUV400 electric SUV as the eXUV300 Electric concept at the 2020 Auto Expo. However, the carmaker recently revealed details about XUV400 including the fact that the new electric SUV will be longer than 4 metres (4.2-metres) which shouldn't be an issue for the upcoming electric SUV as EVs are not covered by the sub-4-metre subsidy benefits.
