The best-selling electric SUV in India is the Tata Nexon EV and its most direct rival is the Mahindra XUV400. With the two EVs available at similar price points, it’s natural for the prices of some of their variants to overlap over each other.

  • Between the Tata Nexon EV and Mahindra XUV400, the latter is bigger by every measure and longer than its ICE internal combustion engine) counterpart, the XUV300. The Tata EV, on the other hand, is a sub-4m offering as it’s a direct EV equivalent of the ICE-powered Nexon.

  • The Mahindra XUV400 also leads the way when it comes to the wheelbase between the two which should give it the advantage of having a roomier cabin here.

  • If you want an electric SUV with a larger boot space, it’s again the Mahindra XUV400 that should be your pick as it has an additional 28 litres of storage space on offer that is likely to help in stacking a couple of more soft bags. Neither of these EVs has a front storage (frunk) option.

  • That said, the Nexon EV has a few extra features like an electronic parking brake with auto-hold, and a 6-speaker music system.
