    The one-off XUV400 uses fabrics to enhance the interior of the EV SUV, and there is no change to the basic layout of the cabin. However, it features a new upholstery with copper stichting and ‘Rimzim Dadu x Bose’ badging on the headrests and the rear armrest. The exterior also gets a special blue colour with similar copper accents as seen on the standard XUV400.

    The badging is also found on the bonnet, boot lid and the C-pillar, with the twin-peaks Mahindra logo also getting the blue outline.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
