    Mahindra XUV400 EV: new design details 

    As seen in the image of the electric SUV’s front end, the DRLs now only confined to the headlight unit, unlike in the XUV300, where the DRLs drop down from the headlights. The XUV400 gets a closed-off, X-patterned, black and bronze front grille with Mahindra’s new ‘Twin Peaks’ logo in the centre, also finished in bronze. 

    The XUV400 has a more aggressive front bumper design, with a prominent crease that houses fog lamps and what looks like an air-vent. More bronze accents can also be seen on the front bumper. This bronze treatment is also seen on Mahindra’s XUV.e range of born EVs, which were revealed last month. 

    From the side, there is not much to distinguish the XUV400 from the XUV300, as the former gets a similar glass house and character lines. At the rear, the SUV will get a revised tailgate design, new wraparound tail-lamps and a more pronounced license plate housing.
