M&M working on new-generation Scorpio for foreign markets

  • Mahindra & Mahindra’s North American Technical Centre is working on a new-generation Scorpio that is expected to hit the roads in 2020. This time around, the goal is to take it global.
  • Mahindra has long been talking about entering the US market with a Scorpio-based small pickup truck.
  • It aims to drive into the developed markets of North America and Europe as well as to hold on its competitive domestic SUV market. 
  • The concept design, codenamed ‘Z101’, is the responsibility of the North American Technical Centre, said people in the know.
  • In India, the Scorpio, despite witnessing competition from Renault Duster and Hyundai Creta, has been consistently maintaining monthly volumes and contributing handsomely to the profitability of the company.
  • Mahindra vehicles of the future will spot the tough and rugged lineage, but “morph and evolve into an object of desire”.– Rajan Wadhera, President Automotive Division, Mahindra.
  • Mahindra is likely to integrate its various design houses of Michigan, Pininfarina and MGRD in Italy, Ssangyong in South Korea and its in-house design studio IDAM.
