With manufacturers looking to clear unsold stocks at the end of the year, it’s a great time for new car buyers to avail attractive discounts and benefits on cars and SUVs. Mahindra, in particular, is offering very attractive discounts on the XUV300 range and the all-electric XUV400. The latter is available with benefits of up to as much as Rs 4.2 lakh.
Mahindra XUV400 year-end discounts
Up from what was Rs 3.5 lakh last month, Mahindra is offering benefits of up to Rs 4.2 lakh on the EL variant of the XUV400. Do note, that this discount is available on models without ESC as standard (subject to availability of stocks), whereas models with ESC get discounts of up to Rs 3.2 lakh. Meanwhile, the lower-spec EC variant is available with benefits of up to Rs 1.7 lakh. This makes the XUV400 line-up significantly more affordable than the Tata Nexon EV.
The EL gets a larger 39.4kWh battery (456km of claimed range) and 7.2kW charging capability, while the EC trim comes with a 34.5kWh pack (375km of range) and a 3.2kW charger. Both versions of the Mahindra XUV400 are propelled by a 150hp electric motor that drives the front wheels. Prices for the XUV400 range between Rs 15.99 lakh-19.39 lakh, ex-showroom.
Mahindra XUV300 year-end discounts
The entire range of the XUV300 is listed with attractive discounts this month, which includes the petrol, turbo-petrol and diesel variants. Maximum discounts are available on the top-spec diesel variants – W8 and W8(O) – of up to Rs 1.72 lakh, while the lower-spec W6 and W4 trims are available with benefits of Rs 1.4 lakh and Rs 59,000, respectively. Priced at Rs 14.76 lakh, the top-spec XUV300 W8(O) diesel variant, after applying all the discounts, will be more affordable than all the top-spec variants of its diesel rivals such as the Nexon, Venue and Sonet.
Meanwhile, the base-spec, 110hp turbo-petrol variants of the XUV300 are available with benefits ranging between Rs 45,000-1.63 lakh, with maximum benefits available on the top-spec W8 trims. Prices for these variants range between Rs 7.99 lakh-13.46 lakh. Lastly, the higher-spec 130hp turbo-petrol variants are listed with discounts of Rs 57,000, Rs 1 lakh and Rs 1.50 lakh for the W4, W6 and W8 trims, respectively, although this engine is only available with a manual gearbox. Prices range between Rs 9.31 lakh-13.01 lakh.
The reason why both these models are listed with such heavy discounts is that they are soon due for a mid-lifecycle update. Mahindra has been testing the XUV300 facelift that gets a comprehensive exterior and interior makeover for a while now, and its launch is due in the next few months. A similar cosmetic update for the all-electric XUV400 should be in the pipeline too. It’s quite normal for carmakers to roll out such benefits on the outgoing model in order to clear stocks, especially at this time of the year.
