SUVs Leading The Way
With the demand rising for SUVs in the market, Mahindra is garnering more sales. Both the blockbuster launches, XUV700 and Thar, continue to attract customers in high volumes. Mahindra’s flagship SUV, XUV700, has one of the highest waiting periods in India. The waiting periods range from 6 to 24 months, depending on the variant and colour. The XUV700 AX7 L, at 24 months, has the highest waiting period.
Now to spice up the things, Mahindra also announced the launch of the Scorpio-N. The SUV is already in the news after being in the speculation for a long time. With the launch of Scorpio-N, Mahindra will further extend its hold in the SUV segment, thus boosting sales.
Scorpio-N: What Do We Know So Far?
Mahindra has released the official photos of the SUV, and right from the start, it does look quite big. Retaining its commanding stance, the Scorpio N gets pretty much the same characteristics as the current generation. The new six-slat grille adds to the new identity of the SUV. Other key highlighting design features include sequential side turn indicators, new headlights with LED projectors, and more.
As of now, Mahindra did not reveal the exact powertrain specification. The Scorpio N will come with both petrol and diesel engine options. In addition to this, customers will also have the option of choosing a manual or an automatic gearbox. The Scorpio-N will also get a 4×4 drivetrain option to make the SUV off-road capable.
