The upcoming Mahindra SUV was christened “Scorpio-N” today, as the company is gearing up to launch their latest offering on 27th June 2022.
Bearing internal codename “Z101”, the ‘Big Daddy of SUVs’ comes as a generational upgrade over the aging Scorpio, with Mahindra claiming to redefine the D-segment of people movers. Alongside the incoming model, the current generation Scorpio will also be sold as the “Scorpio Classic’.
Mahindra says the Scorpio-N will appeal to the “young and tech-savvy customers looking for a full-size authentic SUV”. Speaking of which, the off-roader will be having off-road-ey characteristics as it will built on a previously familiar body-on-frame chassis. Premium interiors with a host of modern features and latest technology stands part of Mahindra’s arsenal of choice; something the company has been historically lacking.
Capabilities of the Scorpio-N:
As per engine options, the third generation Scorpio-N will be available in both petrol and diesel options with a choice of Manual and Automatic gearboxes. Fret not, there will also be a 4×4 drivetrain with low range modes. This makes it the only 7-seater with 4×4 in this price bracket.

The upcoming Scorpio-N has been spotted multiple times in testing phases for a long time, with photos of the design, with no camouflage, being leaked as latest as few weeks ago. You can read all about leaks and potential details and features about the Scorpio-N here.
