Biggest launch by the company since XUV700 in September last year

Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) on Monday launched the all-new Scorpio N with prices starting at ₹11.99 lakh. Its top-end variant is priced at ₹19.49 lakh, both prices ex-showroom.

The company has provided prices for only the manual variants as of now as prices of the automatic variants will be revealed at a later date. These prices are applicable only for the first 25,000 customers.

No carry forwards

The Scorpio N is built using a completely new platform and new engines and does not borrow any parts or essentials from the current generation Scorpio, which will continue in the market, M&M clarified.

The car will be available for test drives starting July 5 in 30 cities and in rest of the country by July 15. Its bookings will open online and offline simultaneously on July 30, on a first-come-first-serve basis, which will also form the basis for delivery dates.

Customers will get a two weeks’ window to change their choice of variant after the first booking is made. Deliveries of the new SUV will commence in the forthcoming festive season.

The Scorpio N will come powered by a choice of two engines and five model variants and seven colours. A petrol-powered engine generates peak power of 205PS while a diesel engine generates maximum power of 175PS. Both options will have 6-speed manual and automatic transmission with an option of 4X4 as well.

The launch comes at a time when M&M and the rest of the automotive industry is ramping up production with the easing of supply chain pressures, especially with improving availability of semiconductors.
