Mahindra and Mahindra have officially discontinued the automatic variant of the Scorpio SUV in India. The leading utility vehicle manufacturer has already removed the Mahindra Scorpio AT variant from the company's official website and a twitter conversation with a follower on its official handle also establishes this report. In fact, sources from the company and some of the Mahindra dealerships we contacted, have confirmed that the Scorpio automatic is no longer on sale in India.
thank you for showing interest in Mahindra Scorpio.The Automatic has been discontinued.To test drive the Manual(1/2)— Mahindra Scorpio (@MahindraScorpio) June 4, 2017
The Mahindra Scorpio AT in its now defunct avatar was launched in India almost two years ago. Introduced at Rs. 13.13 lakh for the 2WD variant and Rs. 14.33 lakh for the 4WD variant (both ex-showroom, Delhi), the Scorpio AT was only offered with the top-end S10 trim. The automatic variant was powered by the same tried and tested 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine that does duty on the manual variant. With the 6-speed automatic gearbox, the 2.2-litre motor used to produce 120 bhp and develop 280 Nm of peak torque at 1800-2800 rpm. The manual unit makes the same amount of power and torque and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Though we are still waiting for the official word, we speculate the reason for the Scorpio AT to be discontinued is because the company is planning to introduce a new automatic gearbox with the upcoming facelifted model. Rumour has it that it will be the same Aisin-sourced 6-speed torque converter that does duty on the Mahindra XUV500, which, in any case, a much better gearbox than the one used in the Scorpio. We are expecting an official confirmation from the company soon so keep watching the space for future details.
The Scorpio and the automatic gearbox have always had an intense relationship. The last generation Scorpio also had an auto box from an Australian based manufacturer but soon after introduction, the company making the gearbox went out of business leaving Mahindra quite stranded. The updated and facelifted Scorpio then got a new 6-speed gearbox that was much better but not as good as the one of the XUV500. We hope, this time around, the new Aisin 6-speed is here to stay for good. In case you were looking out to buy an automatic Scorpio anyway, some of the dealers might still have the 2016 model of the Mahindra Scorpio in stock. Considering the model is out of production you can surely get some considerable discounts on one of these older models. Mahindra also offers an automatic gearbox in AMT form on the likes of the TUV300 and NuvoSport.
