Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., pioneers of the SUV segment in India, has launched its much-awaited SUV – the All-New Scorpio-N – starting at Rs 11.99 lakh. Poised to take forward the ‘game-changer’ legacy of the Scorpio brand, the All-New Scorpio-N is designed.

The All-New Scorpio-N is completely new ground-up, with no carryover components of the existing Scorpio. This allows the All-New Scorpio-N to elevate existing segment benchmarks across all critical parameters: performance, capabilities, technology, sophistication, ride and handling, NVH, interiors and appearance.

Designed at Pininfarina, Italy and Mahindra India Design Studio (MIDS), Mumbai and engineered by the teams at Mahindra Research Valley (MRV) near Chennai and Mahindra North American Technical Center (MNATC) in USA, and manufactured at the state-of-the-art world-class facility at Chakan, Pune, the All-New ScorpioN is truly a global product.

The development and engineering of the All-New Scorpio-N is the outcome of an overall investment of Rs 1,600 crore which includes setting up a world class highly automated manufacturing line.

With its unmissable design, sophisticated ride and handling, thrilling performance, advanced technology, reassuring safety and of course, its terrain-conquering abilities, the All-New Scorpio-N takes forward the unbeatable Mahindra legacy of building authentic, desirable and tough yet sophisticated SUVs.

The All-New Scorpio-N disrupts existing product category hierarchies and will be a force to reckon with across multiple SUV segments. It is a global product, being unveiled simultaneously in South Africa and Nepal, alongside the India launch, and will be followed by launches in other international markets in the near future.”

Bigger, bolder, more powerful, sophisticated, and laden with safety and technology, the ScorpioN nomenclature was carefully chosen to represent the fact that it raises the game to the power of N.

Thrilling performance The All-New Scorpio-N is engineered for those looking for a new-age authentic SUV. Built on our new third-generation body-on-frame platform, the Scorpio-N boasts of class-leading structural rigidity, off-road capability and exemplary on-road manners.
