Mahindra XUV400 Vs Tata Nexon EV Max: Two of the best in class SUVs conpared in depth, read before you make up your mind

Mahindra XUV400 Vs Tata Nexon EV Max: The Tata Nexon EV is the most popular electric car in India right now. The Mahindra XUV400 is a direct competitor to it that came out recently. Both cost between Rs 15 lakh and Rs 19 lakh and claim to have a range of more than 450 kilometres.

Now, we’ve tested and run down their batteries to 1%, but not on the same day or in the same conditions, to see how far they can go in real life. Let’s see if the XUV400 and Nexon EV Max can come close to what they say they can do and which one goes farther:

ModelNexon EV MaxXUV400
Claimed Range453 kilometres456 kilometres
Real-world Range293.3 kilometres289.5 kilometres

More than 300 kilometres on a full charge

Both SUVs’ claimed ranges were off by more than 150 km, and they came very close to the 300 km mark in a variety of driving conditions. If owners drive even more slowly or spend a lot of time in the city, they might be able to get more than 300 kilometres on a full charge.

Both SUVs fell short of their claimed ranges by more than 150 km and came very close to the 300 km mark in a mix of driving conditions. So, if you drive in normal or Sport mode, it’s likely that the range will go down even more.

With these numbers, a buyer might be able to go from Mumbai to Pune and back, or from Delhi to Jaipur or Agra, but not both ways.

When the charge goes down, what happens?

Mahindra XUV400: As the charge goes down, the top speed is capped at 50kmph when it’s at 10%. When the battery is at 8%, the top speed drops to 40 kmph. When the battery is at 3%, the top speed drops to 30 kmph. You can’t drive it faster than 10kmph when the charge is at its lowest. Even when there is only 10% of a charge left, it keeps the buyer’s chosen settings for the climate control and regenerative braking.

Tata Nexon EV Max: In the case of Tata, the regenerative braking gets stronger when the charge level drops to 20%. As soon as it hits 10%, the remaining driving range disappears from the dashboard and the top speed is limited to 55kmph. Here, even the Sport Mode is turned off.

The most expensive version of the XUV400 EV costs the same as the most expensive Nexon EV Max. The base model of the first car costs Rs 50,000 less than the base model of the second car. If your budget is still tight, you could also look at the Nexon EV Prime, which has a claimed range of only 320 kilometres.
