Vipin Pavan Sahi, popularly known as the paraglider who became the centre of memes last year has gifted a new Mahindra Scorpio to his father. Sahu became extremely popular on the Internet after a video from his GoPro became viral on the Internet. He has already gained a celebrity status and has gifted a brand-new Mahindra Scorpio to his father.
The video was uploaded by Sahu on his official account. He says in the video that this has become possible become because of the love of the people that he has received. The video that he uploaded on the Internet, which shows him paragliding has gained over 10 million views. It is not known if he has put the earnings from the video to buy the Scorpio. He even shows his father driving the brand-new Mahindra Scorpio after overcoming his reluctance to drive the new vehicle.
Someone buying a new vehicle in India is like welcoming a new family member and gifting a car is like a very big deal. We are sure that the father would have been ecstatic with the gift. He gifted the car to his father on Diwali, which is a big festival in India.
Vipin Sahu is a businessman based in Banda, Uttar Pradesh. He owns a tile showroom and has been in the business for a long time. It is not known if the Mahindra Scorpio is his father’s choice but since the car is quite popular in the Indian market, it makes for the first choice of many. The Scorpio is known for its rugged build quality and massive road presence. It is also very popular in the Tier-II and Tier-III cities because of its low-maintenance life.
The Scorpio is based on a ladder-frame chassis that makes it suitable for the rough roads in the developing parts of the country that often have broken or no roads. Also, the simple mechanicals and a limited number of electronics make them easily repairable. Since most of the Tier-II and Tier-III families only have one car, they cannot afford to leave the car in a workshop for long. The Scorpio, on the other hand, can be repaired for regular troubles even by the roadside mechanics.
Mahindra updated the Scorpio to meet the BS6 norms but it should be noted that they are already working on an all-new version of the model. The all-new Scorpio will look very different from the current-generation and it will also be much bigger than the current version. Mahindra will offer a brand-new diesel engine with the all-new model and will also offer a slew of high-end features.
