Mahindra Scorpio Automatic to be available only on order

Mahindra Scorpio Automatic to be available only on order

Mahindra Scorpio has been one of the best-selling SUVs in the country since it was launched in 2002. It is offered in a number of variants to suit the budget of a wide range of audience. While some variants of the Scorpio are doing really well, reports suggest that the Mumbai-based company has stopped the production of the Automatic version for the domestic market. This decision was reportedly taken because of the variant’s low demand, though if you still need one, Mahindra will build the car for you. 

The automatic gearbox is offered only in the top-end VLX variant with two-wheel-drive (2WD) as well as four-wheel-drive (4WD). With a price tag of Rs 11.35 lakh for the VLX 2WD and Rs 12.33 lakh for the VLX 4WD, these two are currently the most affordable automatic SUVs on sale in India. Reports suggest that the automatic variant can be booked for a token of Rs 50,000.  

Mahindra had previously stopped making the automatic variant back in 2012, though production was resumed in March, last year. While the earlier automatic gearbox was procured from an Australian company called, Drivetrain Systems International (DSI), Mahindra sources the current six-speed units from Bosch. 

Mahindra sells the Scorpio in several global markets like Australia, Bangladesh, France, Italy, Nepal, Malaysia, Russia, Spain, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Latin America. The company continues to sell automatic variants in these countries and so making one for an Indian customer won’t be much of a problem. The Scorpio, despite being an old model, continues to be the cash cow for Mahindra, and it is going to be updated soon. The facelifted Scorpio has been spotted undergoing trials quite a few times and is expected to keep the model fresh till the next-generation car is ready.
