  • On the other hand, the XUV400 EC Pro is loaded with only a few comfort and convenience features like push-button start/stop, dual-zone AC, keyless entry and all four power windows.

  • In terms of safety, the Punch EV is slightly ahead with technology like 360-degree camera, six airbags and electronic parking brake with auto hold.

  • Mahindra is offering the safety net of the XUV400 eC Pro with some basic features which include dual front airbags, electronic stability program and rear parking sensors.


It is clear that the Punch EV Empowered Plus S Long Range offers more value for the price. Higher range, faster charging options and a long list of premium comforts make it a far better package than the base-spec XUV400.

However, if you prefer something with a true EV drive experience with more road presence and rapid acceleration at increased range, then the XUV400 EC Pro is more suitable for you. Its larger dimensions, which lead to a more spacious cabin, make it slightly more suitable as a family car. Not to forget, the XUV400 has the upper hand when it comes to boot space, which will help in packing a few extra soft bags for a weekend family trip.

So, which of these two electric SUVs will you choose and why? Tell us in the comments.
