The Indian Army has placed an order to acquire 1,470 units of the newly launched Mahindra Scorpio Classic SUV for 12 units of the armed forces. Update was shared by
Mahindra Automotive on Twitter. The handle wrote, “We are proud to announce the order for 1470 units of Scorpio Classic for 12 units of the Indian Army across the country. We thank the #IndianArmy for trusting us.” Responding to the post, Chairman Anand Mahindra said, ‘Jai Hind…’.
Mahindra Scorpio is an important brand for the Indian UV giant, so much so that the company currently sells two variants of the Scorpio in the Indian market – 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N and 2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic.
Scorpio Classic is powered by new-generation 2.2L mHawk oil burner power plant. With an all aluminum construction, it is lighter than the motor it replaces at around 55kg. Also, it uses electronic actuators which make it more responsive and the NVH levels have been reduced significantly as claimed by Mahindra. Peak power and torque output stand at 130 HP and 300 Nm respectively.
With just two variants on sale namely the S and S11, the Mahindra Scorpio Classic is priced at Rs 11.99 lakh and Rs 15.49 lakh respectively. While the S trim remains a stripped-down version with very limited features, the S11 comes equipped with all the bells and whistles.
