    No, it is usually not advised to drive a standard passenger car, let alone a Mahindra XUV 400 Electric, across significantly flooded roads after a lot of rain. The majority of passenger cars, including the Mahindra XUV 400 Electric, have a restricted ability to wade in water. They aren't meant to go through deep, flooded waters because the drivetrain, electrical system, and air intake of the engine could get destroyed or drowned. Due to water intrusion, driving through deep floodwaters can seriously damage underbody parts of the vehicle, including the engine's sump, transmission, differential casing, and exhaust system. It can be exceedingly dangerous for water to enter the brake lines and calipers after driving through floods and cause brake failure or reduced braking performance. An excessive amount of water on the road can cause aquaplaning, a condition in which the tires lose contact with the pavement and the car becomes uncontrollable. Unseen hazards such as deep potholes, debris, or exposed manholes can be hidden by floodwaters and inflict serious damage to vehicles or even cause accidents. It is nevertheless advised to avoid driving in flooded regions unless it is absolutely necessary and the water level is far under the vehicle's wading depth restriction, even if the Mahindra XUV 400 Electric is said to have a 350mm water wading capability. If you have to drive on flooded roads, you should drive extremely slowly, continue very cautiously, and don't brake or accelerate suddenly. It is advised to have your car properly inspected and serviced to look for any possible damage after driving through floodwaters.
