The Mahindra XUV400 is the latest electric SUV in the country, and while it was officially launched earlier this year and quickly garnered over 10,000 reservations, a special edition Mahindra XUV400 E-Print was recently unveiled during the upcoming Formula race.
Formula E, the all-electric variant of Formula One, made its Indian debut on Saturday at the street circuit in Hyderabad. Mahindra Racing is the only Indian team competing and one of the oldest since the season first started in 2011. While the focus this Saturday will be on the performance of the two Mahindra electric race cars on the track, the spotlight will also be on Mahindra’s push for the Indian EV market. The electric version of the XUV300, the XUV400, therefore carries great expectations from the company.
