Mahindra’s first electric SUV, the XUV400, has achieved a significant milestone of being produced with 100% renewable energy and in a water-positive set-up at the company’s facility in Nashik, Maharashtra. The company said that the energy saved in the production of XUV400 vehicles can light up more than 1000 homes in a year and is equivalent to planting one lakh trees.
Being produced in a water positive set-up also means that these vehicles help in saving more than 20,000 kiloliters of water and can provide water to 100 households in a year. The company said that it has taken a holistic approach to manufacturing the XUV400. Veejay Nakra, President, Automotive Division, Mahindra, said, “The overall approach is to build that planet-friendly vehicle in the most sustainable way possible and we have managed to do just that with our XUV400.”

Mahindra XUV400 is also the fastest booked electric SUV in the country as it has received 15,000 bookings in three days. The OEM plans to make 20 to 30 percent of its passenger vehicles electric by 2027.
Mahindra Group claims that its production facilities have a completely water positive set-up. It is also the first Indian ‘automobile and components’ company to feature in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) world index for the second consecutive year in 2022.
The automaker is also the first Indian organization to sign EP100 and adopt a carbon pricing model. The company’s North American facility in Houston recently converted to 100% renewable energy. The company has also been included in the CDP ‘A’ list for Climate and Water for the years 2020 and 2021.
In a separate development, the company has announced huge discounts worth a few more 50,000 on select models for the month of April. These models include Thar, XUV300, Bolero, Bolero Neo SUV and Marazzo MPV.
