The 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N is undoubtedly the most advanced ladder-frame SUV to come from an Indian automaker’s stable. It received 1 lakh pre-orders in just 30 minutes, and the new Mahindra Scorpio-N has been booked for almost the next two years. The company had earlier revealed that deliveries would begin in September, and it seems that the process is on the right track, as Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra recently shared a video of the Scorpio-N being produced at the company’s facility. . The video was uploaded on the company’s official YouTube channel. The assembly line can be seen in the video, and it is ready for assembly and dispatch with the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-Ns.
The video shows the complete assembly process of the SUV, starting with the sheet metal stamping process, followed by spot welding of the stamped panels to form an exoskeleton. Then, hinged panels such as the bonnet, tailgate and doors are bolted onto the hinges, after which, the shell is painted and the interior trims are installed.
While the company hasn’t shown the construction of the drivetrain and powertrain in the video, they can be seen being installed on a ladder-frame architecture, which then gets the bodyshell installed over it.
With this video, it is clear that Mahindra has started the mass production exercise of the 2022 Scorpio-N, and thus it is safe to assume that the customer deliveries will start soon.
Talking about the price of Mahindra Scorpio-N, its price starts from Rs 11.99 Lakh ex-showroom. The SUV is available with two engine options – 2.0L mStallion turbo-petrol and 2.2L mHawk turbocharged diesel engine.
