Highlights

  • Production-ready Mahindra Scorpio SUV spotted for the first time
  • It is likely to be launched in India by first half of this year
  • New Scorpio will be based on the Mahindra's updated ladder-frame chassis.

New spy pictures of the next-generation Mahindra Scorpio have surfaced online, and this time around, we get to see the SUV in the production guise for the first time. Previously, we had seen the heavily camouflaged prototype models undergoing testing with temporary parts. The all-new 2021 Scorpio is likely to come with a bigger footprint, more toned-down silhouette and bigger than the outgoing model. The SUV will be based on the company's updated ladder-frame chassis. The Indian utility maker recently had applied for a trademark for the ScoprioN and Mahindra ScorpioN names.
