After the success of the all-new Mahindra Thar in the Indian market, the Indian automobile major is now working on the next two all-new vehicles. Mahindra will launch the all-new XUV500, which they are testing throughout the Indian terrains later this year. Also, they will launch the all-new version of the Scorpio and we have already spotted multiple pictures of the test mule from different parts of India. The 2021 Scorpio looks like it is now almost ready for launch, and the latest video of the test mule shows new details.
The video by Power Stroke PS, shows the almost-ready version of the Mahindra Scorpio. Even though the vehicle is wrapped under heavy camouflage, details like a new projector headlamp unit and rear disc brakes were visible on the test mule.
The short video shows the newly designed headlamp units of the all-new Scorpio. Also, the video shows the new LED DRL of the all-new Scorpio, which is likely to become its new identity. Mahindra will continue to offer the standard, typical form of headlamps and not the split headlamps that have become the latest trend in the market. The headlamp units do look very sleek though.
The video also shows the six-vertical slates on the grille but it does not look bulky at all. Another interesting feature spotted on the vehicle is the rear disc brake. The video shows the rear discs and callipers that confirms that the all-new Scorpio will offer rear disc brakes as well. The disc brakes provide additional braking power and since the Scorpio will become bigger and heavier than the current version, it sure will be quite useful.
Scorpio to become bigger
The all-new Scorpio will become much bigger than the current version. It still gets the sideways opening tailgate in the rear. The tail lamps look like vertically-mounted units that will keep the DNA alive. Mahindra will offer both petrol and diesel engine options with the all-new Scorpio. In fact, the engine and the transmission options will be similar to the newly launched Mahindra Thar. There will be a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. Both the engine options will offer a manual as well as automatic transmission options.
The cabin of the all-new Mahindra Scorpio will also become much more sophisticated and luxurious. Mahindra may offer a panoramic sunroof with the top-end model. Other features like electrically-adjustable seats, telematics system, leather seats, electrically adjustable front seats and more.
Mahindra is likely to delay the launch of the all-new Scorpio due to unforeseen reasons. First of all, there is an unprecedented demand for the all-new Thar and because of that, there is a long waiting period that is extended to months in a few cities. Also, the production of new cars is hit by the shortage of semiconductors, which is an essential requirement for ECU and various other electrical circuits in the vehicle. Due to the constraints, we may get to see the all-new Scorpio by 2022 only.
