    M&M announces the launch of its Scorpio EX - Entry level vairant

    The new 2.5 litre m2DiCR engine with 75bhp power and 220NM torque, is a product of efficient engineering.

    Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. (M&M), a part of the US $11.1 bn Mahindra Group, today announced the launch of the Scorpio Ex, a new, entry-level offering from the Mighty Muscular Scorpio stable. Powered by a 75bhp m2DiCR engine, the Scorpio Ex offers great drivability and refined performance along with an impressive 14kmpl mileage (as per ARAI). This new offering is attractively priced at Rs.7.21 lakhs (ex-showroom Pune, for BSIV).

    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.

    Commenting on the launch, Vivek Nayer, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said “At Mahindra, our endeavour has always been to offer the best-in-class products and this new offering from the Scorpio stable is no exception. 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. An unmitigated success in the SUV segment since its launch, the Scorpio has kept up its momentum with constant up-gradations and new offerings.”

    It is a stripped down version of the main Scorpio with added features. This can be seen as a taxi vehicle in all major places in North and in Kerala. I have personally seen more than 100 Scorpios during my trip to Kerala. The wheels radius is less than the normal Scorpio and the OTR cost is almost 1.5 to 2 lac less than the usual LX variant

    The one which got released 2-3 years back was M2DI engine and this is m2DiCR engine, then one which comes in Bolero storm. Probably this is to attract more taxi fleet

    That thing weighs almost or more than 2000 kgs man. What kind of mileage were you expecting? To put that in perspective, the ARAI mileage of the M800 is 16.1 kmpl and Alto is 18.2 kmpl. And they weigh about 600-700 kgs.

    I think M&M will offer equipment levels more than the current M2Di (which has almost none).
    I have driven the M2Di around 60 kms in the highway. Driveability is good and does not feels underpowered. There is also a button to enable/disable the start/stop feature.
    The newer EX version should atleast have Power windows, Central locking with remote and Audio System inorder to provide more bang for the buck in 7.21 lacs.

    So as per this logic, the Scorpio should give 12 kmpl. What makes you think it would give 8?

    As per ARAI, all diesel hatches FE is more than 20 however in real time none gives out more than 15. So went with same logic
