For faster charging, users can opt for a 50 kW DC fast charger, which charges the XUV400 from 10 to 100 percent in just 50 minutes, ensuring minimal downtime and maximum usability.

Real-World Range Test

Mahindra claims an official range of 456 km for the top-spec EL Pro 39.4 kWh model of the XUV400. During our real-world range test, we observed the following:

  • Starting with a fully charged battery, the onboard trip computer displayed a Distance To Empty (DTE) of 278 km in the default fun mode.
  • At the 75 percent battery mark, we had covered 67.2 km, with the trip computer indicating a remaining range of 209 km.
  • By the time the battery reached 50 percent capacity, we had traveled 129.3 km, with a remaining range of 138 km.
  • At 10 percent battery, we had completed 228.2 km, with a DTE reading of 24 km.
  • Finally, at zero percent battery, the XUV400 traveled an additional 27.8 km before coming to a complete stop at 256 km.

The XUV400 is a strong option in the electric SUV market because of these real-world results which also demonstrate the vehicle's remarkable economy and validate Mahindra's stated range.
