Mahindra has launched the Scorpio EX, a new, entry level variant of the Scorpio. The m2DiCR engine in this base Scorpio produces 75bhp of power and 220NM of torque and returns a mileage of 14 kmpl (as per ARAI). This entry level model is priced at Rs.7.21 lakhs (ex-showroom Pune, for BSIV). Equipped with fuel-saving Micro Hybrid technology, the Mahindra Scorpio switches into the standby mode, when not required. Features of the Scorpio EX include crash protection crumple zones, to protect passengers and the digital immobilizer. The SUV accelerates from 0 to 60 kmph in 11.2 seconds.

“At Mahindra, our endeavour has always been to offer the best-in-class products and this new offering from the Scorpio stable is no exception. With its easy drivability, great mileage and refined performance, I am sure that the Scorpio Ex will be an instant hit with young customers looking for an affordable entry point into the Scorpio franchise. An unmitigated success in the SUV segment since its launch, the Scorpio has kept up its momentum with constant up-gradations and new offerings,” Vivek Nayer, Senior VP, Marketing, Automotive Division, Mahindra, said.
