Mahindra & Mahindra has launched an entry level version of its flagship model Scorpio, called Scorpio EX. The new offering is powered by a 75bhp m2DiCR engine, and offers a mileage of 14kmpl mileage (as per ARAI). This new offering is priced at Rs.7.21 lakhs (ex-showroom Pune, for BSIV).
The Ex version will replace the M2Di Scorpio which will be discontinued from BS3 markets. The new 2.5 litre m2DiCR engine which also powers the Bolero VLX and Xylo D2 produces 75bhp power and 220Nm of torque.
The new 2.5 litre m2DiCR engine with 75bhp power and 220NM torque is a product of efficient engineering. It is equipped with the fuel-saving Micro Hybrid technology, which allows it to intelligently switch the engine into the standby mode, when not required – ensuring lower fuel consumption while being more environment-friendly too. Compliant with stringent BSIV emission norms, the Scorpio Ex emits lower emissions leading to a reduced carbon footprint.
Additional features include crash protection crumple zones, to protect passengers in the unfortunate event of a collision and the digital immobilizer which protects the vehicle from theft. Further, effortless acceleration enables the vehicle to go from 0 to 60 kmph in just 11.2 seconds. The Scorpio Ex is available in four attractive colours namely Rocky Beige, Diamond White, Fiery Black and Mist Silver.
On the occasion, Vivek Nayer, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd – ‘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.’
Weirdly, the official website has not yet been updated with the new variant.
