Mahindra the leader in the Indian automotive market has announced that they will start deliveries of the brand new Mahindra Scorpio-N from tomorrow that is 26th Sept. The automaker has 1 lakh SUV reservations on hand and has essentially sold out of units for at least a year. On August 15, 2022, online reservations for the new SUV began. Mahindra was forced to close the reservation window after 30 minutes due to the 1 lakh reservations that were made for the SUV. Bookings for the new Scorpio are already being sold on classified websites for astronomical premiums due to India’s intense interest in it. Although there are SUVs with monocoque bodies that are priced similarly to the Scorpio-N, none are equipped with ladder frames at that price point.
Mahindra will begin accepting new reservations in a few months, but customers who order the new Scorpio-N should expect to wait at least a year. This is because demand is so high. Modern Chakan factory owned by Mahindra is where the Scorpio-N is made. The new Scorpio production facility is a highly developed building with lots of automation and robots. Expect a high-quality finished product because the production quality appears to be quite high. The Scorpio was previously made at the automaker’s plant in Nashik. The premium XUV700 is now being produced alongside the new SUV.
Two engine choices are offered for the brand-new Mahindra Scorpio-N: a 2.2 litre turbocharged diesel and a 2 litre turbocharged petrol (called mHawk). A six-speed manual gearbox and a six-speed torque converter automatic gearbox are available for both engines. The petrol versions of the Scorpio-N are rear wheel driven, whereas the diesel versions can be ordered with four wheel drive.
The automatic trims of the 2 litre turbo petrol engine produce 200 Bhp-380 Nm, while the manual trims produce 200 Bhp-370 Nm. Three different tuning levels are offered for the 2.2 litre mHawk diesel engine, which has been in use for many years. The base diesel manual trim’s engine has 130 bhp and 300 nm of torque, while higher manual trims have the same engine tuned to have 172 bhp and 370 nm of torque. The top-tier diesel automatic trims have a state of tune of 172 Bhp-400 Nm. The Scorpio-N is the strongest Scorpio Mahindra has ever produced based on these figures.
The SUV is offered in a whopping 25 variants, meeting the needs and budgets of a wide range of buyers. Prices for the entry-level Z2 diesel trim start at Rs. 11.99 lakh and go all the way up to Rs. 23.9 lakh for the top-of-the-line Z8 diesel automatic 4-wheel drive trim. Since the current prices are only good for the first 30,000 reservations, prices will soon be increased. The new Scorpio-N is undeniably a big winner for Mahindra, and it’s now up to the car manufacturer to deliver the SUV on schedule given that there are thousands, if not lakhs, of customers prepared to write a check for the newest Mahindra in town.
