Mahindra seems fully prepared for the launch of the new generation Scorpio. We have received numerous spy shots as of now, thus suggesting that the SUV is in its final phase of testing. The recently launched XUV700 continues to attract customers to the showrooms, which is also pretty much evident from the waiting period of the SUV. Mahindra is now focussing a lot on the SUV segment. Given the growing demand for this segment in the country, Mahindra is witnessing a steady growth in terms of sales figures.
